Just got back from my first ride of the year! There is still a lot of snow, but the sun came out and the temperature rose to a whopping 4 degrees in the valley so I grabbed my warmest gear and set off up the mountain next to my house. Lots of photos of the KTM Duke and the mountains below!
The Duke has been sitting untouched in my garage for the past 5 months but it fired up perfectly first press of the button.
There was a lot more snow than I was expecting and most of the way up it was melting and running across the road so I took it pretty easy.
Was great to be back on a bike!
You can almost see spring from here!
The roads were so cold that the back stepped out on me a fair few times but it’s pretty easy to deal with on the Duke. Was also quite nice to have ABS. I must be getting old!
SO nice up the top of Rossfeld! All photos taken with the iPhone 5.
