Thanks! It was a fun ride as well. ;) It did get a bit nerve wrecking when I saw the sun going down more and more, and then having to switch my tank to reserve before making it to the beach. Which meant that I had to run from the beach in a straight line to the nearest gas station. But at least I caught the last rays of the sun.

(And I have found out that I need to adjust my headlight as it seems to be disturbing a white van driver. Nobody else flashed their lights at me, but I guess the beam went straight over their heads. ;)

I wish I could ride to the beach. I think its about a 1200 mile ride for me to the gulf or pacific and maybe 2500 miles to the Atlantic. Good photo Arne!

Thanks Radare.
Closest beach on a marine reserve here is probably 7 minutes on the bike. Proper seaside is about 25 minutes. I love the sea. Love the mountains as well, but if I would have to choose... ;)

I don't have a lot of pictures of the bike yet, since it is currently a project. But here is my current favourite picture!

Mikee, you take such amazing pics! The positioning in the first one makes it look like the shadows on the tank are straight from the clouds. Just awesome!
