A few pics from this week

Post  Nacho on Thu Dec 16, 2010 5:55 pm

Hi there, guys.

I just bought a new camera and took some pics a couple of days just to try it.

What do you think about them?

Don't let the sun and the blue sky make you think that it is warm here in Spain. Temperature when taking the pics was below 0ÂșC.

I recomend you to enlarge them. They are 1000 pixels wide.













Best regards from freezing, but sunny Spain.

Hasta la vista,

Nacho.

YOU!!! are the only one ugly here, Big Boy. And what does "do do" mean? I don't get it.

The reason the bike has only one white wall tire is because I had to replace the other one and did not find another white wall one. Avon does not make that tire for the RSV any more and my only chance was to use a 170 rear tire, wich I don't feel confortable with.

The bikie was nice with two white wall tire, but now that I don't have the chance to find rear ones, will run regular ones again.

Here are a few pics of the bike earlier this fall with the two white wall tires..

Riding with the wife at a bike meeting in October. First time she joined me in several years...






And these ones in a solo ride looking for the fall colors.... All of them were taken with my previous small compact digital camera.

Yes I do! But my wife does not allow me to have more then ONE motorcycle in the garage so if you want to taste something else you need to sell the other one. However there is always a possibility to return to a Venture isn't it ? Very Happy Smile Very Happy Smile

You should, my friend...

That's the only way I know for having SEVERAL BIKES IN THE GARAGE.

With a Venture, you can have a touristic bike, plus a fast bike, plus a fun bike, plus a cargo bike, plus an elegant bike, plus classic bike, plus, plus, plus, plus.... all in one single bike.

Now imagine my case. I have TWO VENTURES. I can't even count how many bikes I have in my garage...

Think water, my friend. Buy a Venture...
