Exploring my island *warning no adventure here*

No this isn't a very adventurous ride report. My back has been bothering me so I haven't ridden much this week. When I woke up it was very foggy and we've been having some high tides so I thought it might be a good time to go for a spin and check out the beach and marsh. I probably didn't ride more than 15 miles exploring my little island.

Also went 100 miles south later in the day to check out another beach...thought I'd add the pics as well.

Those photos are awesome, Dom...especially the one of the birds in the marsh.

You live in a beautiful place.

Nice pics.


I think it will take me a while to get over the idea of a scooter and adventure riding.

Scooters make great adventure bikes. Especially when you consider most "adventure" bikes never leave the pavement.

You know how to capture a great shot, Domromer; thanks for sharing.

Out of interest, what equipment are you using?

It is not what you ride that makes the adventure.
