Rising higher

I descend, turn around, and have a proper go at it. That’s better. It looks like 412 will be a series of climbs along ridges — good times. The OBR ADV Gear grip mitts and the bags I’m using today are a world different from my first longer ride here on the KTM, when everything was flopping around,¹ making a hassle of trails like this.


I still wonder if I’m over-packed for a day ride but I’m not sure what to give up. The side bag has water, first aid, tools, hand saw, air pump and a tire patch kit. The top bag has lunch, a tripod and heavy gloves. The tank bag is all camera stuff. All together, it’s my man-purse.
