Nothing special. Just a short ride around my place (Switzerland, Gruyère)  - countdown to Cape Town: 5 months





What a beautiful rural scene erey.  What are they farming there?

Thank you. Mainly grass for the cows - milk production (70%). They produce 10% of the milk for Switzerland. We produce here the cheese "Gruyère" from year 1115.

Did some dirt roads with mates near Assen. My first real experience with this type of riding on this bike. Was really good fun although I was much slower than them, which they didnt mind. Found the bike a bit twitchy in soft sand and loose gravel but got used to it. Felt much more confident on the tar after the dirt roads.
I think I may need better tyres though as the standard tyres didnt really grip well but dont know really what to get as I do probably 90% tar. Also got the bike full of mud for the first time.

The weekend, while resting a bit on Sani, I made proper use of the crash bars.  :biggrin:
