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.


The Peg feeling at home


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


view of the river on it's own


View the other way

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


Another shot of the 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!










I think I am at the top here.




On another section - I had to stop and take some photo's of the sun through the trees.




Probably my favorite tree photo.

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

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)


Spent one day here in the forest/mountains where the wind turbines are
