Tenere Tracks in the snow

There was a time when I would dream of doing the Paris – Dakar but never did – no worries cos I’ve enjoyed most of the places I’ve been on my Tenere.

Including coming bleary-eyed out of the bunkhouse at Braemar to this scene —

But I’m not a lover of German autobahns. One day after a couple of hundred miles of full throttle at 108mph I got a little bit bored and pulled into a service station. Five minutes with my Swiss Army knife cut the ninety degree snorkel inlet off the air intake – a result! The next two hundred miles were done at 113mph!

It’s not all about speed – sometimes just getting there is challenge enough. Getting to Glenshee and Braemar wasn’t the challenge but getting out again after we had been snowed in was —

I remember this pic – it was my first of the Tenere – probably Loch Dochart between Lix Toll and the Green Wellie on my way to Ardnamurchan —

There have been many more – this one at Palnackie

If old dogs are your thing I cater for them as well —

an out-of-holiday season Portpatrick —

yes I like boats – in Port William harbour at low tide —

with Ailsa Craig on the horizon I must be by the tea hut south of Girvan —

waiting for the boys to patch the road somewhere in the Scottish Borders —

on the way to Seahouses – Northumbria —

by the Orchardstoun Roundhouse —

a remote beach on the Isle of Tiree —

by a defunct viaduct to nowhere —

the old cottages and red tin roof on the village hall make a lovely backdrop at Parton —

out for a gallop in the Galloway Forests —

Near Newcastleton with Hermitage Castle in the background —

Time to see what today will bring 🙂
