Was that an outing you planned to do?

Are the shrimp the bait, or the catch you were aiming for? I thought that, like lobsters, you'd just drop a pot with bait and pick them up again later.

Was something different to go and do. Was a Christmas present from work - got a choice. Had to wait for warmer weather to do this.

Will let you know more when I go again. Have no idea. They have a big net handing from back of the boat.

Shame, so flat and muddy  8:
Just wanted to say that as well 
For sure.
The only off-road riding worth doing, is mx.
We have pretty nice mx tracks though.

My best option for off-road trips is Romania

Do they throw fish in the sea to catch shrimp?

Looks interesting! Did you enjoy it?

They kept the shrimp and threw the rest back in the sea. Great experience. Good weather helped.

A little milestone - passed my bike license. Took me three tries and a why do you ride so badly discussion. Guess I still need to get used to all the traffic rules. Am very happy though.

Typical me. Bought a bike before having a license. Have a 2018, beautiful 500 exc-f, six days, almost all white, KTM.

Not sure exactly what I am going to do with it. Have a 15l tank for some "long" rides. Lots of back roads but they love going through villages which takes time. The max speed in Vlanders is 70km/h on rural roads. Highways are 120km/h.

Cannot wait to go riding. Watch this space, as they say.

Really liked the statue too. Made me think of Asterix.

Those boots maybe? No ways Asterix would wear a hat that smart ???

Loop around Hasselt (incl Houthalen)

Beautiful photo's again.

Is this a sunken bridge? And why would they do that?
