After a night of heavy rain (even the racoons wanted to get a shelter in the house) we had a reprieve and got a nice afternoon to ride.



I decided to take the kids for a ride and treat them at Tim Hortons.
The gluttons ate so much that I couldn't fit them in the rig after the meal.
They had to finish the ride on their own bikes (o)



The temperature was perfect (16 degrees) and we had a nice 200 kms ride.






We may experience the Indian summer, but pretty soon the temp will be below 0 and the season will be over. I will have the full winter to work on the rig (cleaning, painting, replacing the engine output seal,.....)

Just magic..great scenery and backdrop for the outfit.The temperature would have been just right.
My weekend ride was through open cut mines on a 40 degree day , sat on the back seat as it was too hot up front.
Once again great shots CF.

Nice pics of yellow autumn. Here we have 22 - 23 in mid day, sea 22 and a two weeks dry sunny weather. But Im afraid it could continue just to this weekend. And when rain starts it will last forever.

Cheers

Hey Nino, I see the surf is not up at the moment. How flat can it get. Where is that photo taken?, the bike looking out over the water is great.

This is the beauty of this forum.
You virtually get a forum member's K100 and travel his country.
Nice pic Niño.

DUBROVNIK! Wow. Some years ago I took a ride down the Adriatic coast, and this town was my absolute favorite. Stayed there 2 days just poking around. Fabulous.

Nino,

This is a very nice picture.

The sea, the green mountains and then the snow on the background.
All this within few hundreds kms. This is what makes Europe so special. You don't have to ride 1,000 kms to see a change on the scenery.

Nino,

Your photos brought back memories of my ride down to Dubrovnik back in 1985. I had a Honda CX650 at the time and rode from NW England to Dubrovnik via Switzerland and Italy. I stayed at Camping Solitudo and spent an enjoyable couple of days sightseeing - visiting the old town and sailing across to Lokrum island. Returned home via the San Marino motorcycle GP in Misano then back across France.

I always enjoyed riding down to Yugoslavia, went again another 3 times during the next few years but only as far south as Opatija and Postojna. Last visit was back in 1990 on my current K100RT.

Bill

Great pics Nino! ...but it feels you are just teasing us as I sit looking out my office window at the mist, rain and grey autumn sky, which is just like the summer sky was except on the 2 days the k100 forum members got together cheers Good things happen on the forum!

Today, after a small ride , I passed the first mildstone... 1,000 miles (1,600 km) with the chair. 3/4 was done on small twisty roads.
I sh*t in my pants only once. It reminded me that I am not 18 YO anymore and the road is not a racing track.
I haven't regretted my purchase once.

Bill, my dream was ride from Dubrovnik to Isle of Man. I planned it for this summer but I hadnt enough time. Maybe next summer with my friend who rides Harley Electra.

Its long ride from England, but if come here by plane I ll rent you a K 100 RT for free
