Well I cant speak for everyone (but I'm sure I do) I was glad to see the back of the little Irish git, he ate all of the scrambled egg

Only joking mate was good to meet you, and hope it's not too long before I do again.

Just got home tonight after staying in Maidstone and travelling up boring M20, M25, etc etc ... to finish off.

Total 1933 miles door to door.

No idea of fuel and oil used, but at our front door I saw that there is a wood screw embedded in rear tyre. No pressure lost yet and looks like it has just happened so Somebody must be looking after us Upstairs.

A truly amazing week for our first bike trip to Germany as members of OAPs-on-tour Sub-Group.

Pictures to follow soon


p.s. Clare also sends her best regards to everybody and thanks for making a long pillion trip such good fun

Keep music live!
