The day started with an awesome trail and nice weather.
Later one of the guys we were riding with damaged his oil sump when hitting a big rock. Luckily it was possible to fix on the trail. #shithappens
Riding on these mountains is a good training for next years #hardalpitour . I think I’m going to attend, just need a team of three, ideal would be three old beemers, I’d love that. - #offroadadventure#over2000riders
Happy Bastille Day! - 🇫🇷🇺🇸 - Being in France on their national day is fun, in every city is an event. We were stopped by the police, but didn’t know why at first. A parade was coming through. A second later a tank just passed us, came out of nowhere, like it’s a normal thing to drive there. - #bastilleday#routedesgrandesalpes#summeradventures
Due to a massive earth slide we weren’t able to drive the southern part of the Via del Sale, so we navigated ourselves onto some smaller tracks and still reached our destination, who cares about a little detour, the trip continues. 😃 #viadelsale#adventurebikes#frenchalpes
So I'd been looking for a new adventure bike. Nothing really grabbed me until I saw THIS! The owner was leaving the country and trying to find the bike a new home. He made me an offer I couldn't refuse and...hey presto! So here it is, my 2012 690ER. I'll make a little vid about it soon - anything you guys wanna know? 👇
We were on our way to the tunnel of the Monte Jafferau. The tunnel was passable but after a few hundred meters a landslide blocked the trail, so we turned around and followed the trail down to Savoulx.
Where does the open road take a person? When I get to see a view like this it makes me want to hit the road and drive until I reach the horizon. Working towards the financial freedom that will allows us to just jump in and go! #wheretheroadends#roadtriponawhim#sidehustle
Gibraltarrace mythological creature #1 : The Photographer. Alessio. You will meet him in your ralliest moments, those in which you feel your ride smooth as the wind, fast as thunder, classy as 🎩 . In that exact moment he will overtake you, on one wheel, whilst flying his drone with the left hand and taking a picture with the right. God bless the Photographer. 🚀
I don’t know how to say it: Long story short, the bike got a facelift. I call it the „Tim Burke“. 😃
Longer version: I didn’t see a small hole and went in it after starting the bike at only 1 mile an hour. Everything is fine, just the front fender crashed, my fender bag luckily protected my front light from further damage. It’s just some plastic, the adventure continues! Still I was pretty shocked in the beginning. Now I’m amused by my idiocy.
Gibraltarrace is (also) about meetings spectacular human beings. Meet Clidanor, easily dancing his full-carbon multistrada pikes peak around all Europe never missing a smile. Super good friend and great Rider. 🚀
