Groundhog Day
on: February 02, 2013, 10:19:51 AM
I wish today was sunny, slightly overcast and 22°C. I'd wake up, do my marital duty, have a nice breakfast and go for a 400km ride though the twisty hills of The Eifel - with not a car is sight. I'd come home, have a nice chicken curry, wash it down with a few cold beers, repeat marital duty, and fall asleep happy. And repeat.

Now that's my Groundhog day - what's yours :261:

Glad you got off the Baileys and back on to the cold beers there Doc :008:
We do a Photographic rally every year here and today (Sunday) is the start, it involves 24 photos to be taken at secret locations around Ireland on roads less travelled. Its not about the photo- it might be a monument at a junction or a lighthouse on a cliff edge, its mostly getting a few mates and going off and trying to take in a few in one corner of the country and planning the next few a  week or two later
So this would be mine at the moment, with the beers at the end of course

Sounds good.
I like going in search of 'Tags' that fellow riders have 'planted'. Finding the 'Tag' and planting a new one is fun and makes for a great day out - and you learn about your country (or others) too! I did it a lot on my ST1300.

Can you guess where this Tag is?  :084:



Easy? Answers on a postcard to...

See, easy one to start.

Now there are a few more CT riders around here, maybe it's time to set the first tag - a little harder though.  :007:

Already asked Crosstourer Admin, and we'll get a new topic area for tags in a few weeks.  :028:

Get your cameras out!
