    I made sure that I washed and waxed my GS before I hugged it.
    Was I using the proper protocol? :p

    Oh man! Beauty shot of your machines.
    Nice background too... I've skied or hiked most lines from Pic A' Tenerife on the viewers left to the Serpentine bowl (directly above your left pannier in the bottom pic) plus lots more back by Trout River Pond, Croucher's Gulch and South West Gulch.
    First ski trip there was Easter 1971. Thanks for making me homesick, in a good way.:cool: LOL

    I only had time for a short ride today, and temps were cool and with overcast skies. Heading up Torbay Road the temps were creeping up and there was blue sky...so I kept riding. By the time I hit Cape St. Francis the temp was reading 17 degrees and with light winds.

    The bowl in the Tablelands looks inviting. Skied that a bunch of times when I was in better shape for the steep climb and carrying skis and boots......... and beer...lol

    Got out Sunday for a short run and added another lighthouse picture to the list, just have two more for the Avalon. Cape St. Francis was stunning on Sunday, last time I was out there it was overcast but this time it was really clear, everything was so vibrant almost looked fake. Blocked with people too.

    First ride of the season, went down to Whitbourne and back around via Conception Bay North. Machine runs really nicely and it was a beautiful day for it! Lots of bikes on the road today.

    I took my Varadero for a ride today. It’s the first time in over a year. Comfy ride! Very difficult getting use to the clutch. Funny thing is I found the hydraulic clutch on the KTM hard to get use to when I first got bike, but now so nice and smooth. Stalled the Varadero multiple times in the driveway and once at a traffic light.

    Went for a spin on the R65 after getting it out of the basement the other day. Only went as far as Grates Cove and Baie de Verde

    I couldn't live there, Grates Cove has no trees!
