First ride of the year

#1 PostAuthor: Philippe » Sat Feb 17, 2018 4:25 pm

Hello men
this afternoon the sun was out, the roads were dry and it wasn't too cold so I decided to go for a little ride, the first one this year. I took my Z1 and made a little trip of about 50 Km.
I stopped for a smoke at Lessines, a little town where they have quarrys. It's famous for its blue stone, used in buildings since hundreds of years.

My Z1 at the roadside before a stone wall.

And this is what's behind the stone wall. It's an old abandoned quarry filled with water and used by a local diving club to practice.

It was a short trip but a pleasant one. The first one of many more this year ( at least that's what I intend to do).
Greetings from Belgium

Nice one Philippe and, if my bike was ready, I too would have been out today in the spring sunshine.
