Last night , I ventured out on the bike once more , to check out a road I haven't ridden for a couple of years .............. it winds it's way from Charlbury to Chipping Norton , a trip of only seven or eight miles , but nice all the same ..........

 

Here's the Panzer , soaking up the sun in a field close to home .............

This is Spelsbury , a typical village in the area , with the winding road going through it ..........

Francois ,

Me and Andy rode up to Yorkshire in early December , and I would have frostbite if I'd worn these gloves ...........it never got above freezing all day .

Steve,

 

Beautiful pics ! I can almost smell the herbs and hear the birds... and you know what : thanks to your pictures of the 1200RT I start liking the forms of it. You should ask a contribution to BMW-motorrad wink.gif Thanks for posting

Marty,

Little and often ............... I clean the bugs off after every ride if I can ........... but really I hate spending time cleaning .......if the weather is good enough to be cleaning the bike ............. I'D RATHER BE RIDING !!

Beautiful photos Steve. thumbsup.gif

 

I lived in Suffolk County (Woodbridge) for 3 1/2 years in the late 70's early 80's and absolutely fell in love with the English Countryside.

 

It is my plan to make a trip back over there with my RT and tour those very places that you are riding.

 

Thanks so much for the views.

 

Cheers,

Michael
