I did crater lake with Uncle Phil, it is an amazing blue colour, much more so than any water I have seen before.

A link to UP's home page and ride report from 2012. He also did it in 2004.

UP has just way too much time on his hands... (or needs some time-out...) ;)

Just today I told my helper/co-worker about Cyril... (RIP)
That bloke had a ball, spending almost all of his retired life in the saddle of his ST/s...
