    A day out in the mountains

    Hi Guys,

    Here's a few snaps from today. Took the TW out whilst I can on some local trails before the snow buries them. Very impressed with the TW And yes, I am going to change the front tire, the Kenda K270 is in the garage, just haven't got round to it yet and I wanted a ride.

    Have a good weekend all.

    Cheers
    Potski

    Looks nice, I think the TW is the right bike for that trailless terrain. (fat tires = little trace)

    Looks like a beautiful day out with great pictures.
    Those panniers look perfect size for trail ( or no trail ) TW-ing.

    Nice views.

    Looks like the terrain out by my place looking at the Owyhee Mountains. Are you sure you're not close by? Giggle

    Hi Admiral,

    I'm in the French Pyrenees there (but only just), looking south towards the border with Andorra and Spain. Just had a look where Owyhee Mountains are (coz I'm nosy) and you're a very similar latitude.

    Trust you're recovering well.

    Cheers

    Yeah I know your half way around the world. Interesting how the terrain can look so similar in different parts of the world.

    Healing is going according to plan. No pain, but have to do everything one handed. I did go out and start the TW's yesterday, so I did get my engine noise fix in for the day.

    Well, I'd be lying if I said I hadn't have thought about it!
