Future commute

Last Saturday was too beautiful not to spend it driving. I wanted to finally get some pictures of my chalet - that is to say, the chalet that will soon be mine. I advertised my plans in the UB forum, and Damian said he'd like to come along. It's nice that I'm not the only one who'll the autobahn for an hour in order to ride the curves.
The tour lasted a good four hours in a warm wind, dry roads, and a Scorpion front tire that after 6000 km is slowly but surely losing its profile. It was a pretty comfortable ride.
On the Schwägalp I could take my pictures. Contrary to my expectations, there was no snow up there. Well, almost none.
Afterwards we mounted our machines, which had been able to take a short rest on my parking lot
and headed back down into the valley. We parted ways in Wil, and on the way home I discovered the Hülftegg and some new roads in the Töss valley. Unfortunately, both were wet, but it didn't rain.
Upon arrival back in Adliswil the Beastie got a well-earned and long overdue bath.
