    Everything on this past trip went almost perfectly....there was a slight misstep.



    Trying to climb this 15 foot steep little hill to get out to a lookout point, I tip her over and cracked my headlight case.

    The scenic shot is gorgeous! Having the TW in too gives scale and also makes the photo tell a story. Very nice.

    Great photos - interesting experience getting a bike onto its feet and started on a slope like that, eh?

    trying to restart on a hill is where you appreciate that "electric" start. What was your riding temp?

    This was in Sept last year, it was chilly in the mornings (approx. 40 degrees F) but quickly warmed to mid 50's.
