Somewhere during 1992 I rode that road for the first time. I took a map, it indicated that there was a road. I had a bike (an old bmw r60/6), I rode it. I rode it last three years ago, on a bike that was 44 years old. Maybe you bought the wrong bike, maybe download the dvd and watch it in the comfort of your home.

Only you can prevent yourself from riding the road.
