Hi all
good to see you are back in gods country Dandy did you and pete have a good tour? re the tyre Tonesky you are quite right about the tyre ware indicator infact I used the same indicator on my last set of tyres a pity the indicator did not appear until the day I had to get the ferry. Wrex That pic of me holding up the rock was taken on the highest pass in Europe (col du Bonnette) at 2802 meters ASL now I figured that I better hold that rock up after climbing all the way up cause if I let it go I would be standing on the second highest pass in Europe and that would never do, bloody bloke took ages coming with the bucket of cement. Out of the pics of RTT06 I like the one outside the pub were we stopped after hardknot pass Wicky is standing with the thinkers pose on I was tempted to title it "did I realy order a diet Rum with an ordinary coke last night". The best bit of the Euro trip for me was the Gorges it was just fantastic swooping through them on the bike with the rock overhangs and sweepy roads would do it again without a doubt. Now Tonesky where in Germany are we going and I take it that it will be over a longer time period than a long weekend and if its just a long weekend I guess it will be mosel or Rhine area near Koblenz for the sake of getting back to the ferry distance wise mind you would be a good excuse for the start of a Euro Tour.

cheers Bob

Pics look good, thanks for sharing.

But as we down-underers are so far away, I would love to see some comments on & about each pic to get an understanding of where they were taken & who is in them.

Nice pix Bob - reminds me I take too many shots of places and not enough of people, who are really more important for the album. Must say W. looks very philosophical throughout!
