It's possible that there are photos of me on the ground if you search the 'net.

The whole report gives a very good idea of what to expect in Wiltshire, It's easier when it hasn't been raining for weeks.

Where are you guys from?
My home is where my Stella is although I prefer the more stronger brews
If you see DuibhceK on his WR or XTZ, chances are I'm not that far behind...

If there's anyone doing some nice trips around here, let me know, I'm in... I'm mostly riding alone and after almost 600kms every weekend it would be nice to have some companions riding along...

Weird that i just found this thread.

I'm from the stille kempen, way up north near the Dutch border.

I got these in my backyard to blast trough. Perfect on a cold, damp and early morning.

Wortel, Merksplas and Baarle-Nassau have some nice spots that are very well doable on the big adv bikes. :) Depends on the weather tho, some can be really tough when it's muddy.

Noobie here
Well, not to riding bikes that is. Been in the saddle nearly 27 years now. Eagerly waiting for my gs to be delivered.
Haven't been on public roads with the bike for the last 8 years, but totally stoked on going back on weekend trips again.
Living in bazel (waasland) with 2 teenagers and the wife

Anyway, sure nice to read some Belgians here
Luc.

Just another Belgian checking in; grew up in la Wallonie, but living in the USA these days (Virginia). If any of you ever come across to this side of the pond, give me a shout.

Hope to come back to Belgium and do a big ride through Europe & Asia next spring/summer; we'll see!?
