    And if you have the time I would recommend travelling a little further to the Valais region :thumbsup: Spent many happy years walking, cycling, skiing and sampling the grape.

    I am afraid I may be lowering the tone with my Russian beater watch.

    Quite beautiful!

    Although, technically speaking, the 'autumnal equinox' doesn't actually happen until almost exactly 36 hours from now :)...

    .... and, yes, I have OCD...:rolleyes:!

    The leaves are just starting to change here:

    First I saw the watch, THEN I saw the BIKE! WOW, nice set-up. I'm running a Cannondale SuperSix, is that the Garmin 510? I've had mine for a year now and love it. Great training partner.

    Well, I'm guessing autumn is something relatively ;) We have places here that only has winter and spring, the summer and autumn never takes place. Where do you live?

    Yes you are probably correct. In the Boctok promotion video they had similar tests to the G shock videos. They get a Russian vehicle looks like a cross between a jeep and a Humber to run over the watch. Still works and the auto movement keeps +6 a day so not bad for $75 US and even less in sterling.

    The bike is 2 weeks old, the Garmin, a 705, is now the 'dinosaur' :D at 6 years old, but it's been quite good to me for over 20,000 miles!
    Deep South, but just north of Atlanta, so we have at least another month before the leaves peak...
