Brilliant - VERY nice scenery but a cool atmosphere - thanks for sharing.

When I lived in Durham I used to travel along the Weardale lanes on my Tiger Cub.

Ah ..... the memories. smilesmile Always enjoyed a pub visit either during or after the ride.

Similar scenery and views but without the snow, in October 2009:-

The horn, speedo and reserve fuel tank were all improvements I made to the Cub. biggrin

It was bought with the mirror fitted.

It was all road legal, insured and MoT'd at the time.

It later didn't need an MoT or tax disc because it was a 1960 model and therefore exempt. wink

I still miss the old, oily mistress. cry

Was that overenthusiasm or a badger that made the Suzuki tumble? confuse

And here's me thinking that badgers are only met on Devon lanes. disbelief

Is that Burnhope Reservoir, just west of Wearhead, in the background?

good to see that you had a  traveling petrol station with the cub in case of need, a nice looking bike

 Soft?- Maybe for a youngster on L plates, but for an old timer like me it would be painful. bleh

There's a saying, "The older you get then the less you bounce."

I can vouch for that - I'd land like a ton of rocks nowadays. omfg.gif
