I know that photo. It's a beauty. And to think that the great early C20th expedition photographers like Ponting, and Frank Hurley, used plate cameras, heavy large format kit and hand-crank movie cameras on heavy tripods to capture stunning images at down to minus 50 degrees. And then processed and developed the film themselves in a freezing hut! An amazing achievement.

The book ‘Endurance‘ about Shackleton's Incredible Voyage is a story that everybody should read.

Anyhoo back to the subject matter.

I enjoyed this cheeky little trail on my way home tonight....

I recently posted a photo of my Hornet uncleaned after 173000miles. Here's proof a good coating of oil and sh*t will preserve you stuff.
Removed this weekend to replace two header gaskets the pipes have come up proper minty !

Congratulations Phil, not very blokey to say but it's the best thing ever, you can get 'another' bike anytime.
Open your eyes and you see what is in front of you, open your mind and you see a bigger picture but open your heart and you see a whole new World.
