    I'm Back - and some Holiday Snaps

    Hello All, I have returned from conquering the great Welsh Coast. I got a bit wet from time to time, especially in the mountains, so not too many photo stops. But I had a wonderful time. I'm just replying to e-mails and pm's today. Very nice to come back and find orders waiting. I'm very excited to get back in the workshop tomorrow
    Some pics,
    All loaded up....and fresh rubber

    Pembrokshire Coast at Trifin.

    Snowdon Coast before Barmouth, This road follows every wiggle an inlet of the Coast. Wide open on one side, mountains on the other.

    Barmouth

    Was pretty bad visibility on Angelsea, but found a lovely wiggly coast road in the north east. Had to get a picture of this house in the fog.

    I did not get to do the fish beach roast, maybe next time I can share my culinary beach skills. Its a bit like Rick stein crossed with Gollum beating a fish over the head
    It was a fab time. The Bike did well, a few cosmetic bits fell off, the rear hugger went somehow and I lost the front fairing bolt and had to make a pit stop to find a 6mm bolt to hold it on. The side fairings are just off from working on it, and I thought I may as well leave them off for the trip for cleaning and checking for leaks and stuff. I've ridden the bike all through winter to and from the workshop bar a few days of really bad snow. I'll tidy it up this winter so I can chop it in for something else, maybe something a bit more upright.
