Couldn't have wished for better weather could we. Best ever Ace Cafe Adventure Overland day for that. What a great op for a natter eh. And really good to see so much happening with the ABRAC ride. Good stuff! The bad stuff? Somehow I managed to delete all my shots but 4 off my camera? It'll be the destruct button next time :whistle:

And another, at last count I think that'll be six or seven, we're almost rivaling the GSes. :laugh:
Yes, but if you add all your combines cc's you still don't get past 1000 ;)
Size isn't everything, as with most thing in life. :laugh: :laugh:

The owner of this 120, told me he saved it from the scrap heap, and done a fair few trips on it. :)

The Honda 125? That belongs to Mark Manley. He left from the Ace Cafe on Sunday - heading for Mongolia. Mark's well travelled. Bicycle (yes :dry: ), his 91 R80GS, a 85 R80gs, his original Triumph Bonnie and now this one. He manages to make 6 month to 2 year trips happen fairly regularly - different bikes every time near as damnit. Good bloke. Just had an email saying he's in Amsterdam and had a great ride so far.
