Feeling nostalgic...

Yesterday I prepared the bike to be stored for the Winter, I'm probably not going to ride for 3 months ... so I started checking some videos I took last summer (I took about 200GB!!). I still feel sad that I won't ride for 3 months, but at least I can rewind and live this again

This video was taken in Luxembourg, when I was basically riding completely alone

PD: It was my first time in that road, so don't expect MotoGP-like action...

Nice, quiet road! Thanks for sharing. Your pace is fine, particularly since you're riding solo in the woods.

Motorcyclists notice things others miss. Like how nice and smooth that pavement looks. Great place to get out and ride, I'm jealous. You have quality, I have quantity, as I can go ride this weekend, but my roads are super boring compared to that.

At least it wasn't in your bed.

That looked like a great road. And your pace seemed plenty quick considering the trees were RIGHT THERE by the pavement and the rock walls were very close on the other side. If you hadn't said where you were from I would have guessed it was a road in northwest Arkansas. Beautiful place to ride. Thanks for sharing that.

I wish I could say the roads around are like that, but I live in the Netherlands, where everything is flat and boring, so I have to get away 300km to get to this kind of roads... Once there... it is fantastic

Yes, it is grey, and this is it:
