Just though I'd start a blog up showing the places I get to on my wr rather than spamming elsewhere.
02/04/15 Above image is taken at the
Gordonstown Hill wind farm at grid ref: 57.450663, -2.476091 but you can't see it on street view as the images are too old. The others are all taken within the Fyvie castle estate grid ref: 57.443619, -2.391474
09/04/15 Just for anyone interested, the location of these off-road photos is on the forestry commission trails in the Gartly moor forest grid ref: 57.382964, -2.700629 and also the Back o' Bennachie forestry trails grid ref: 57.311256, -2.563512
Snowing on the 26th of april, Dafuq?
Just went out for a quick ride today to have a look at a nearby antenna, thanks for the motivation @yamahawr125x2011 !
Since the hill is the tallest in place in surrounding 25km area you can normally get a real good view from it but the weather was terrible and I couldn't real see much :'( (grid: 57.386681, -2.400188 )
Lost my crash virginity today
The rear end slid out whilst I was coming out of a corner doing 40mph and I tried to counteract it by steering the other way but the front end tucked and I highsided. The bike and I slid about 50m down the road (which was wet and muddy) before coming to a stop on the verge. Fortunately the bike has sustained very minor damage:
Luckily it was only 1 1/2 miles down the road and the bike started up fine after I picked it up.
How are you doing?
I'm pretty much OK, I only have a bruise on my hip but other than that I'm fine. My gear held up very well; my jacket only has a small mark on it, my gloves are fine, my mx boots only have a few small marks and the trousers are scratched but not torn.
Thank's for asking!
Good to hear
Smart to wear riding gear, always do that myself
So decided to go to a pretty unique spot today, the abandoned Tarlair swimming pool which was built way back in 1931 (57.6705029,-2.4720687).
So I decided that I finally had enough with my phones crappy camera and decided to buy something a littl better, a Nikon D3300!
Needless to say the picture quality should now be 100x better and I'll probably start taking even more pictures too Here's a few examples of the cameras quality (I've had to downscale them to 1/8 resolution in order to upload them):
And a little comparison between my phone and camera:
The WR is going to have a new friend soon
