"Biker" for me usually means motorbiking, though I also have a Marin mountain-bike...

My current motorbikes are a CBR600RR and a CBR600RW, both from Honda.

Previously I have owned: Honda VF750F, Yamaha FJ600, Suzuki GSX750EX, Yamaha FJ750, Yamaha XJ900, Kawasaki Z750 and I passed my riding test on my Kawasaki KH250.

Back from Marseille after a great weekend biking with Tony from Bristol as pillion on my RR. We went to Castellane and a couple of the mountain passes and several spectacular gorges in Haut-Provence and the Alpes Maritimes around Nice. And back first thing yesterday morning along the spectacular Grand Canyon of the Verdon.

I did get out biking yesterday for the first ride this year. Not bad to have an enjoyable bike ride even in February!

Here's a postcard from yesterday and Saturday in Cornwall. I was riding with Tony, my baker friend from Bristol. The weather was pretty grey on Saturday and crossing over Dartmoor was particularly bleak.

En route from Marseille to the Alps

I'm riding light for a week on the mountain roads of the Alps. No laptop, although I do have my SLR camera but photos will have to wait till I'm back in Marseille..

I left Marseille for a long ride north via the Col de la Croix Haute (1179 m.) to Saint-Gervais under Mont Blanc. A bit of rain towards the end of the day which cleaned the Provence dust off my white leathers and boots but didn't soak me through.
