Spot the difference

Anyone name the location?




And another from the archives, 2011, a couple of weeks later, less than 10 miles away from where the above photos were captured:

Who can name the black model?

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

The differences are, there is a black helmet on the ground by the bike, and the wall on the left has fell down. Plus the wall on the right looks like it has been hit by a car.  :015: :whistle: :008:

Snowdonia, Nant Gwynant, and Llyn Peris?
The difference appears to be that ancient stone walls dont weather as well as a Versys!
And austerity has eroded the road.

Sometimes it takes a winding road to get your head straight.

Well done the gentleman from God's own county. Correct.

Just so there's no misunderstanding. Wales is very beautiful but it's not God's own special place  :182:

The black one is a MK1 Versys called Albert  :whistle:. The lake is Ullswater.  :001:

You're right,
you'll never get to heaven on a V650. :5:
