    Some touring through the province of Zeeland (Zeeuws-Vlaanderen / Zeelandic Flanders to be precise) a  few weeks ago.
    It was still pretty chilly and windy. Due to COVID-19 restrictions we were not able cross the Belgium border.

    thanks for a nicely presented video.The music suited it well, a gentle ride , through clean streets and a very flat countryside -and you mostly kept to speed limits (well done) even though the roads looked very quiet .

    Thanks!

    This part of the Netherlands has not the most exciting motorcycle roads.
    There are some great historic objects to visit I you are into that.

    COVID-19 risks and restrictions make it even less attractive to be out and about but work from home for more than a year is not that healthy either for your sanity. :006:

    The CT (with DCT) is a great motorcycle to take it easy though on these type of roads.
    The Netherlands must be the inventor of the speed bumps and low speed (30km/h) zones :164: but we were not in a hurry.

    yes I agree.With age the testosterone is less dominant so you can enjoy the ride without having to be the fastest thing on the road! A friend once commented " I bet there was some nice scenery we just went through" as he was too concentrated on the road to see! It was nice to see a clean country -litter free - compared to the dirty people who throw rubbish out of their vehicles here.
    Keep enjoying your rides- and watch out for kamakasi cyclists!
