Tour Of Lake District
« on: April 20, 2014, 09:35:19 am »
Hi All ,Just back from week in the " Lakes " with the wife Elaine on pillion fully loaded including top box and tank bag and to no surprise of riders of these pages the TTSE ( silver ) performed without fault and made a excellent 1000 mile tour great fun . We went on all the local passes including the surprising (well recommended) Whinlatter Pass and of course the Wrynoss  and the Hard Knott passes . The latter two demand  very good forward planning and some of the turns dips inclines etc are every bit as difficult as those in Switzerland . Would well recommend getting of the beaten track and trying these passes  great views great riding  and a well deserved  sense of achievement when completed .
Well done TTSE  ( silver )   NOT sure the blue ones could do it though...........
Ride Safe ,
Colin

Got a caravan in the lakes so go over there regular. Can be a pain in the backside if it's busy though!!

That does sound like a very nice tour, very envious ! I think that Davybull is mistaken with the blue bikes ability

Ahh a tour of the Lakes District on a Trophy.  Now there is a ride I'd love to make.  I did tour the area a few years back in car but I don't have to tell you its not the same.   :110:

Loads of miles
Great ride. Easter sundayI did devils bridge for a cuppa and bitty. Round trout beck over kirkstone pass, penrith then up to Hartside for another cuppa. Down to Alston back to wetherby.
Great day out. Cannt beat the lakes on a good day.

Would be interesting did u camp or b&b any recommendations for accommodation.

alas getting ready for my next offshore trip next Tuesday. But got great weather over Easter
