Aprilia Pegaso offroad in Portugal
 
Just got back from a weekend in Portugal where the peg now lives. I took a few photo's and a lot of video so some of this may cheer you up 'cos it's friggin freezing back here in the UK.

Near the local river, very nice and nice tracks to ride along it as well

Marco came out with me one day to explore some trails

One day I did some riding towards a mountainous forest area and came acros this nice little waterfall

I climbed up this tower

And could see the peg!

And a lot of forest as well

Quite a few photo's from this area because the scenery was stunning, hope you don't mind!

If anyone knows how you embed a video from utube on here let me know and I'll do that.

Nice, show us more. Those mountain photos with the wind turbines looks just like I'm riding here in West Virginia.

men8ifr 12-16-2010 06:36 AM

I will post up more video's when I've edited them but i think that's most of the photo's I took.

Phil, it's near Santa Comba Dao

Location in Portugal - where the A is, it's mostly euculyptas and pine forests, really nice and the smell from the euculyptas is great.

The first couple of days riding was near here (Santa Comba Dao)

http://i298.photobucket.com/albums/m...3Dec162233.jpg
Spent one day here in the forest/mountains where the wind turbines are
