Me: Honesty.

The Suit: Honesty? I don't think honesty could be construed as a weakness.

Me: I don't give a f**k what you think.

Day 3

So, after leaving our HQ, and riding some tarmac, we went 'Off Road' entering a gravel trail, that got progressively worse the further we got.
Where this photo was taken, we had all stopped to let a fleet of Dutch registered 4x4s passed who were coning in the opposite direction.

Ask no questions, I'll tell no lies!

This was a long but highly enjoyable day. Total mileage for the day was 54 miles but it took us 6 hours to get back to our base.

Somewhere along this trail, we stopped for a rural coffee brew up

Day 4

Another 'Off Road' day.

This was a ride to Andorra, via the 'Smugglers Trail'

First stop was for coffee at this wee spot , Casa Sisqueta. The coffee was served in a glass, :?: Is this the norm ?

This is great, fair play for taking the big bikes off road : )

when we got to the plateau, we meet some Isrealies, who were travelling in some 4x4s from Andorra into Spain. Turns out they were a dance troupe and took up the invite to join them for some stretches etc :lol:
