    Very good!

    I see that today was your turn with the TTSE.

    The sound is a little louder than the other bike, but it also sounds good.

    I have a question that I have been observing ...

    On all roads, are the center lines of separation yellow?

    Some are yellow, others are white center lines.  I'm not sure why they do that but it varies

    In Spain, they are usually painted in yellow when road works are being produced.

    In the US, yellow centerlines are used to show traffic on the other side is moving in the opposite direction.  So on 2-lane roads like these, if there is a centerline (some smaller roads are not marked) it will be yellow.  On a highway (motorway or dual carriageway to the Brits, not sure what you call them in Spain) the lines separating lanes are white, denoting traffic moving in the same direction in both lanes. 

    Also edge lines are white on the non-opposing traffic side - so on a 2-lane like these, both edge lines will be white.  On a highway, right side edge lines will be white, left side edge lines will be yellow, even if there is a grass or other divider between oncoming sets of lanes. 

    One of the most disconcerting things I experienced when I drove in Europe was having white centerlines with oncoming traffic on the other side of them.   This was harder to learn to deal with for me than driving on the left side of the road.
    2015 TTSE.  It's blue.

    Another nice day out on the "Trophy". I loved the shape of the barns that you rode past. I bought a book [The Ultimate book of Historic Barns] when I was in the States a few years ago. Some are truly beautiful, if barns can be called beautiful that is.
       We [Victorian's] have just been given the ok to go for a ride. Visit family, and no staying overnight. Just might have to get the Trophy out of hibernation and warm up the oils. Of course I'd have to go the long way wouldn't I.  :008: :008: :028: :028:

    That's great news Hackle!  Send us a video of your ride if you can.  Would like to see where you ride

    This would be an example of the stripes painted on our roads.
