Life on the open road under the wide skies
Summer leathers so great to feel closer to the bike and the road without all those winter layers.
Goldilocks would have liked that ride: not too hot and not too cold.
Little wind and roads clearish; except for horse-drawn vehicles presumably dispersing from Appleby Fair. Like bikers, these guys also appreciate the romance of the Open Road.
Moorland sheep are particularly effective at vehicle speed control.
Great roads, views and new performance tyres performing well. Happy rider!
And there really is a place named Ruffside.
