My beautiful country

Had a few hundred miles around mid Wales today.
Took a few pics. We've got a beautiful country.
Did a few miles on single track with a dozen enduro bikes. No problem for the AT.

Yes indeed nice photos. They seem to be Honda bars on the bodywork. However I see engine bars also and I did not think any would fit with the Honda items . What brand are they ?

It's around the Elan Valley. Llyn Brianne and Clearwen . The byway around Clearwen reservoir is a must do .

Griff, they are Holan lower bars. According to Holan before I ordered them they said they will fit.....but..... the right hand side was a really tight fit, the Honda bracket had to be moved up about 10mm. The left bat wouldn't fit at all, I had to put a 10mm spacer on the front, again to get it past the Honda bar front bracket. So no they're not great but I managed to get them on!

You're quite right welsher , it is a beautiful country, most of my riding is done in North Wales, I never tire of the hills and mountains,

And the roads are perfect for motorcycling,

Adventure before Dementia,
