Great pic! As a man of discerning tastes, might one enquire as to which make of heated gloves you were won over by?

I ended up buying on reccomendation from two seperate vmcc members,   Savior is the make, french i think, not the most expensive, around £80 if i remember right, i haven`t been out in the rain yet so can`t say if they are waterproof as they claim

Hi Rufus

Lovely picture of the Conda in a fabulous area. I have been lucky enough to travel that area a lot over the years as (I think I've said before) my mate's Mother-in-law lives in Kirgunzion. What a great set of roads to have on your doorstep.

I've been into Derbyshire along the Via Gellia near Matlock and then called in to the Woodend carvery for a very nice, if slightly expensive, brekkie. I don't know about you Rufus but most of my trips out involve bacon in some form!

As one of the Youtube people I follow says 'see you out on the road'.
