Clearly it is your duty to don a dashcam so that we may all partake of the pleasures.
Alright alright, I will not let you down! :---)




But today it's raining...... 8-[
I decided to video my out today. After 15 minutes of failing to get the handlebar mount for the gopro mounted on the handlebars I gave up, sorry. :)

That's okay, no hard feelings :grin:

Well, lockdown has been lifted for over a week, and we have had Summer weather for the last couple days (25c and great blue sky) and more of the same for the Bank Holiday weekend... I had to get the Summer gear out !
Sorry no airhead on the picture, as she's resting while I attend to the front calipers and a new pneu is installed...

Thanks Keith..

I'm in a conversation with a director who is preparing a 3 mn promotional film for the park. I have suggested that the camera follows a guy riding his classic BMW through the park (ha!), and as he waves to people on his journey, the camera can trail and focus on whatever activities these people are doing (which is the purpose of this film aimed at tourists of course). :-({|=

Will see how it goes.

As the BMW is off the road for awhile (at least until next weekend), the W is being used every day.

And another gorgeous day on the Burgundy Dales....

A few errands this afternoon which gave me the opportunity to cover a hundred miles in a very pleasant Summer weather (25c and a gentle breeze).
Quick stop by a buddy's place whose house nears the Burgundy Canal....

Maybe as far as descriptions go but the abundance of pram wheels, shopping trolleys and bicycle frames sort of removes the magic.

Local farmer used pink shrink wrap to make his hay bundles. A percentage of the revenue generated by the sale is redirected toward breast cancer research, or so I was told.

It's a rare Pink Marshmallow farm!

They are not hay, they are alien eggs. Be careful and do not under any circumstances touch them.
