I'd ride back out in a heartbeat, and I'm pretty sure Bacon would too. More pics coming up

more bacon pics


These signs are on the common motorbike roads warnings riders of the dangers of twisty roads. As if we don't know
They were color coded (green, yellow, red, purple), I have no idea if that relates to the relative danger of the road ahead.


Fluela pass


Ofen pass


Stelvio


Looking up at the switchbacks


On the way to Gavia pass


Gavia


Up high in the clouds


At the camp spot.

As always, more pictures in the RR, if you're interested.

He's going to Lille (France) this weekend, to Loutre. I suppose you could arrange a handover with Loutre by the end of the month, it would be good to keep Bacon moving.

Sure is good to see Bacon out riding again and lots of terrific photos to go with it. Thanks for taking the time to share the adventure.

As of this weekend Bacon is in the capable hands of Loutre. The handover was entertaining, to say the least

(I will keep posting pictures of my trip with Bacon as my RR progresses)

Got my head out of my own ass and did what I was supposed to do since I got the porker: Posting news and pics.

He's still alive don't you worry :o). We are right now in brittany in france and I showed him around, some cost sight seeing classics. Tomorrow we get to Limoges in the Limousin. After that I'm happy to give him to the next rider ASAP. :o)

Here you go for the latest pics:


The castle from the movie 'janne d'arc with milla jovovich and from the series Merlin. In pierrefond




Brittany


Some kind of bomb from WW2 that we found in the sea. I like the image of bacon doing the Coyote riding the bomb


Did some climbing with him


Famous house in brittany at the 'pointe du chateau'


We also did some hicking visiting the Pink cost of brittany. There only 3 pink costs in the world with corsica and... ask wiki















Well he's still getting around and showing him parts he didn't knew :o)
