Mountain Tracks

– it would be great to take the Tiger along a gravel road amidst snow clad peaks. Like where this 1200 Tiger’s owner has taken theirs. Wilderness destination.

Leafy Lane

Tunnel of Trees

– temperatures in the 70’s and a light breeze off the Lake gave us a splendid ride through Lake County. A couple of unexplored roads that led back to bucolic farm scenes gave us a delightful few miles of riding.

White barn and verdant pasture.

It’s always so special when you find these compositions through leafy frames to elegant farmsteads.

Enjoying the road to ourselves
