Last ride of the season ...
« on: November 05, 2018, 17:31:44 »
As I have no more time before the ski season, the weather wasn't so good but we decide to have a last off road journey in Cevennes

After a a rocky part in the beginning we have to do some adjustments





Alone we go faster, together we go further

I do not ride fast, I ride far

Higher, no more leaves on the chestnut trees, shame! (they were all on the tracks  :D )



A lot of cuts of woods in this region



Then we tried an incertain part, (maps doesn't say the same thing; with deep ruts; a lot of shots (wild boar hunters) ; we decide to go back after Jacques' fall (he decides to come with slicks tires  :D )and decide to come back on spring ...



Sure Jacques can add some nice pics and panoramic ...

Yes :) - tubeless Alpina. Now after ap.10 000 km - no problems :) - one punctation/hole in the front tire on route - patched in 10 minutes with a pin without removing the tire  VCIF_ThumbUp

Well, not exactly the last ride, as tomorrow I´ll visit a Honda dealer to se his new exhibition building and there will still be a couple of days riding to work next week. But soon the "Camel" will take over when it gets to cold with salty roards...  ;D
Only 109 km, but in a lovely weather; sunny, no wind and dry roads.

"Munkholmkiosken", our summer meeting place... not many motorcycles here now...  ;D



But some nice views...





At "Herslev Havn" (marina), this is where we hold our wintershelter-meeting around February 1st.



Some nice views too.







Our danish national bird, the swan.



"Roskilde Havn" (harbour), another summer meeting place, not many motorcycles here either...



Then through the longest avenue in Denmark, almost 8 km long.



To one of the few gravelroads on Zealand that you´re alowed to ride on.



No problem on a Varadero, even though it´s on "slicks" ... just makes it a bit more exciting ;D



Which leads to "Tadre Mølle" (watermill).



Though the weather was fine, it was a bit to the cold side, so at home again, I fired up in the wood stove to get warm on the outside...



...and made me a cup of "Turbo-the" to get warm inside... and a Christmas Brew, just for the "hygge" (a danish word
for doing something that makes you (and maybe some of your friends), feel good ;D)



(don´t forget to scroll to the right, to se the whole pictures ;D )

As said yesterday; today I visited a Honda dealer. Right into the shop I was "forced" to take a test ride on the Adventure Sports, so I took it out on some of the roads from yesterday. Great bike, think the biggest differences compared to the Varadero is the weight and the 21" front wheel, but I missed the feeling that "this bike was build for me" and the feeling of riding "express train".

Plan your ride, ride your plan.
