    Cool New bike, new camera, same old favourite road

    https://youtu.be/XB0OgGotP6I

    Clip from my ride out around North Yorkshire and Weardale today. This is going up to Hartside cafe on my way home. About 4 minutes in I get to fully test the ABS, which totally save me being distracted looking at bikes on the other side of the road (was much closer than the camera makes it look)

    I tend to head that way if I'm out on me todd. Local to me, so can be there and back in a couple of hours. Just a shame it gets as busy as it does, but at least there's always a bit of craic at the cafe.

    I was in Alston during the Easter weekend.

    I went all that way to be within spitting distance but the fuds I was meeting were heading north to Ayr.

    I love coming up to the cafe the way you did, it's a braw bit of road.

    Strategic positioning :-)

    I have a mirror stem mount now, which gives a better view but the engine noise is quieter due to wind noise.
