The KTM's at the top of mount Gráfell ( ca 650m high )
One had to ride up the entire mountain hill in wet snow condition on full throttle in second/third gear.  We had to "jump start" and drag up one fifth of the hill an old suzuki who ran out of juice ( battery ) hence could not get started after it got dead stopped after digging itself into the snow ( it did not have a kickstart ).

Few shots from the enduro rookie training last weekend. On our way  we found a group of guy's on an Suzuki jeep dead stuck in that ( little ) snow. Not sure what they were thinking.  The rookies on the big bikes were struggling in the snow due to being overloaded, inexperience and on 50%/50% tires ( The BMW 1200 GS got stuck there in the river after the rookie misread the river  ) One rider on KTM 990 Adventure made it through the snow ( or rather more or less on the banks along side it ), the other one I had to fetch and guide through the river ( which was much easier then struggling with those heavy bikes in a wet snow).  Unless your name is Chris Birch or have gradually increased the size of your bike then you wont be riding much these 990 + adventure bikes in a real offroad terrain here.

Finally nice weather here on top of the world. Manage to climb 1000ft up the mountain after work and get a 3 hour workout and nice ride back home under the northern lights. Needs a bit more frost to get a proper hard shell to ride on but Fantastic never the less.

If people wonder why certain things are poorly implemented and broken in Fedora here you can see why.  FPC and working ahead to be able to properly implement things ( not just tag maintainers when you have a system wide feature and expect them to fix it which they rarely do ) is forbidden...
I have started to look into the "feature" which would make systemd-journal the default syslog someday and when doing some research I could not find any section in FPG regarding logging and log files which explains why it's such a mess ( only 3 package seem to "Require" rsyslog when in fact most ...

<sigh> Why the frack was this bug not a blocker in F21
Tracker is dumping the entire text of the discworld series (which I have as PDFs) into my system log, together with metadata of every song I have in my music directory. The logging verbosity is set to "errors", but tracker ignores that. apparently it's failing to insert things to the db, ...

Kudos to the Gnomes tracker team for spewing chunks of files in the journal in plainText no wonder people are disabling tracker left and right ( cpu load, this etc )

That's a very nice design. I remember seeing something similar in car's air conditioner compressors... Nice to have engines with this idea.

Stuffed my newly bought Giant Loop ( indented for those longer rides ) with towels and took it for one and half hour test ride in shitty Icelandic winter weather condition the past weekend.

The GL stayed in place when battling the weather,the snow and crossing those icy rivers with the towels staying dry the whole time.

I will be swapping out  the wolfman bags which you can see there in the picture from an trip we took in September last year after we crossed Tungnaá which is one glacial river in the area ( here's an footage of 4x4 crossing that same river in pretty much same area as we did http://youtu.be/8leMvvwiOPU   ) since GL's seem to be better waterproof

We crossed about 35 rivers in total in that two day trip around the glacier world and drowned 4 bikes when crossing those rivers ( none in that river thou ).
