Very Cool Michele! The 90 looks GREAT! You have kinda similar wheeling to what we have here in New England. Cutting small trees in the trail, and slippery leaves on the not so used trails.

Thanks Mike!
Glad you liked it!

To say the truth the 235s look now a bit small (compared to the other tyres ),
but,as Ben wrote,time was just perfect and the ground was dry,so no issues.

I've been very happy to meet some friends.
Hell,these guys travelled +/- 8 hrs from Germany before we got home!
Think I have booked a room for Dec the 7th/8th/9th for a tough outing (or so I was told)
in Toscana and I have nobody who wants to come as passenger...


Anyway,back to the 90...I just got hold of a brand new truck cab (well,it's near Cambridge at the mo)


...can't wait for the next spring/summer to come so I'll start my Summer Conversion Project

Thats awesome - I love Italy. I'm supposed to be reassigned to Garmisch Germany at the beginning of 07 - maybe I should bring a Defender!

Some more...

I finally bought a new scanner with a film/slide adaptor,so I'm able now to resurrect some pics...

The colour ones of the same place you see following the link above.

The B&W ones are from another outing in Liguria.

All the pics were taken during the last summer.
