Thanks for the 'eye candy' thumbs up......glad you think so.
As bubu said, I'm sure Colorado is full of it's own distinctive eye candy too....

I haven't posted a pic here before so this might take a couple of tries.

My Bavarian battle bike (BMW Rockster) and two of my best friends riding an old CB900, and Harley Softtail

Always great to know folk enjoy the thread, thanks for posting to say so.

'Here's to a new rideout season' - Absolutely! ..ours should start anytime now, just waiting for a dry Sunday.

Good to see your ride pics ....days out on the bikes with mates are the best of days.
Like the BMW, it's a distinctive and 'cool' looking machine.

Hope to get out on the Viffer for the first ride tomorrow!

Thanks, - Good luck getting out tomorrow, hope the sun shines for you... not looking too hopeful for us - rain forecast . Nice cycle-cross, Sarah is really enjoying riding her's (Giant)..... we got out today for a cycle...but as you can see it was without the sunshine.

Sorry to hear it...hopefully spring will be with you real soon.

The only good thing about winter is it really makes you appreciate summer!

As mentioned above...we got out for our usual Sat cycle today ... I have been keen to keep this up ever since my heart attack a couple of years ago ...and it has been quite effective, I have lost a couple of stone and feel a lot fitter for it.

Today we did a 26 mile route from Balloch on cycle route 7 to Gartness then back down the West Highland Way.

Some of today's views...

Thanks, yes that is Dalnair House near Croftamie...it was a baronial mansion built in 1884 for a wealthy Glasgow merchant. More recently is has been a nursing home for the elderly (my ex-wife used to work there in fact) ..it has been empty for the last 10 years after the nursing home closed but it is now going to be developed into flats.


You can rent the gatehouse as a holiday home...

Hi Kam,
Love that black & white pic! That's just stunning.

venneman- If you are new to Colorado, you will definitely need to get a little ways out of Denver for the nice scenery. Once you do, you could go into eye candy overload!

Cheers bubu.

I am jealous! We are still waiting for our season to start, normally we would have been out by now but the last two weekends have been wet. ..... and next weekend is looking the same (with only 7C forecast)

Thanks ......... that is also a stunning pic of your own! Like the rock outcrops that match your KTM paint.
