Nice ride and pictures. A night under the stars is always worth it.
What kind a lens has such a small focus range as in your last pic?

Not good to read a story like this on a Sunday evening. Going to make this week feel really long.  That looks like the perfect way to spend a weekend on the bike :ricky:

Wow, Isle of Sky was die plaas waar my Ouma Grootjie gebly het. Voorheen Waatlemoensfontein. My ma het menige vakansies in daai wit huis deurgebring. Defnitief nog op my bucket-list. Awesome RR!! :ricky:
