Re: Long weekend in Wales & the ABR Festival

I had never been to the Ponderosa before and it was great to see all the other bikes there. 20190714_135736.jpg Was lovely to see this GSXR 750 - I remember when they came out, I had a GSX1100EF at the time and lusted after the GSXR1100 but could not afford to change - maybe it was for the best :twi...

Re: Long weekend in Wales & the ABR Festival

From memory there are three gates to open and close after you, but a good opportunity for a photo whilst doing so.

Re: Long weekend in Wales & the ABR Festival

We were not dissapointed with this road that links Trawsfyndd to Llanuwchllyn. A great road passing through a remote and rugged landscape. An extra bonus, a nice river for another spot of fishing on the way through.

Re: Long weekend in Wales & the ABR Festival

I had not forgotten about the wee single track road that we had to miss out on the Friday evening due to the weather closing in, so that was to be our next area to explore, so we made our way to Bala, stopped at the National White Water Centre for a coffee and watched the activities on the river 201...

Re: Long weekend in Wales & the ABR Festival

Made my way back down to Church Stretton and checked out Carding Mill Valley, again another lovely spot - but i imagine would tend to get quite busy at times. 20190713_091218.jpg 20190713_091516.jpg So met up with Jon, had a catch up over coffee and Jon who lives in the Kidderminister area, took the...
