    'Adventure bikes' make excellent road bikes too. I many cases the larger variants are better suited to the road than the trail and riding them well on the road is no less worthy imho.

    Agree. IMO Adventure is what the individual makes of it. If a persons Adventure is a coffee shop ride on Sunday that is fine by me as long as they are getting out and enjoying themselves. If somebody else's idea of Adventure is to channel Ed March and ride the world on a Honda C90 with a milk crate as a luggage rack all power to them as well. There is nothing written anywhere that says that Adventure must involve even dirt roads let alone off road riding.

    Definitely agree with that. What I'm alluding to are those that buy Adv bikes and have knobby tires installed, buy all the high end "off road" gear, then just ride it to the local bike shop for B.S. sessions, or maybe a Sunday ride. I personally have ridden with groups of these "posers" and have observed first hand their phony antics. The very few that have attempted even the easiest of non-paved roads literally stopped, turned around, and went back home with their tails between their legs. One guy I know has a beautiful 2010 GS with less than 4000 miles on it; still has whiskers on the knobbies! That's what I'm talking about when I say "POSER"!
    To all the others that actually ride their bikes, whatever type, I salute your individualism and lust for fun!

    Breva in Hay.jpg
    Ricoh CX1
    Taken in 2009 on one of my regular runs to Hay-on-Wye to get; one an ice-cream from Shepherds (in the background) which are made from sheeps milk and the only sort I can eat, and two to visit Booth's bookshop which has a fairly extensive selection of both new and secondhand photography books. The Breva 750 was my third Moto Guzzi amongst a life time of riding British motorcycles. As with the first two it was superb apart from electrical issues as it aged.

    Ah but there's nothing to say yours is not just on the side of the road parked??

    Woe is me. Guilty as charged but who can turn down an HD plate holder for free. :) Put me in stocks at an HD rallye and throw buckets full of sh*t at me. I deserve it.

    Not at all, be proud of the bike you own, bikes are as personal as cameras there's one for everybody just not the same one. FWIW I would turn down one, I wouldn't put one of them on any of my bikes that's why I feel sorry for you. ;)

    Or I could just ride it there, might need to change the handlebars though.

    Seen in the back streets of Bedminster, Bristol late at nigh. Hence the high ISO long exposure (hand held though). 0FX86 100T0510.jpg
    X-100T ISO 3200 0.2s f4
    Seems a bit excessive for a commuting bike!

    Lets hope it stays parked (or is it abandoned?) there.

    @Richard_R Don't be so smart. Note, the motorcycles keep crossing the yellow line and almost take the bike rider out. :D:D

    Neither of the two motorcyclists in that clip should be allowed on the road.

    In the photo I posted Adrian on the motorcycle was marshalling a bicycle event. The rider in the photo had completed approximately 220km so far that day including over 2700 metres of climbing and had another 15 or so km to go to the end. He and Adrian were actually chatting as they came over the crest of the hill. The title does not reflect the reality so I guess using current US parlance it could be described as a fake title.
