Great report, lovely roads and some fantastic scenery!

You're right 1986 was a great year, it was when I was born  :4:

;love the painted water towers and grain silos, great idea!

I want to retire, no longer required,
I want to get by without the man on my back.

Thanks for following along & the kind (if lockdown/snowed-in desperate) responses.

I do have another week free in late May/early June... so, maybe a trip south on the A3 is called for, or take the KLR west...


For a truly spiritual aesthetic experience you need to pick up a well loved Mk1. Refined, light(er),  and frisky beyond belief
Hmm. I do like the green of the mk1 - same colour as my KLR, but "frisky beyond belief" doesn't sound good for me.

Guilty as charged I'm afraid.  :003:

Although in my defence with a wife and three kids as well as working for the NHS, I FEEL a LOT LOT older and frequently get told that I look it too.

I hope my defence satisfies the jury (TM  :4:) and please let me stay!!  :020: :020: :020:

Of course TM, goes without saying.

There's not a problem in the world that can't be settled over a tub of B&J's Cookie Dough  :1:  :001:

(Have to bring your own spoon though, you know....Corona and all that) LOL
