Hello friends,

it is nice to hear that you had fun and you felt good in Germany the last week :D !
I hope you all had a good and accident free trip back to home.

For me it was wonderful to get some new faces to the names! And wow ... how fast hairy rides the Nürburgring :respekt: :respekt: :respekt: !
Oh god I forgot to say ... I´m one of the Nürburgring-Seven :dance:!

For us it was a great time too. And I must say ... one week is definitely too short :( !

I´m looking forward to the next meeting, whenever and wherever it will be!

My photos will come soon!
Have a nice day

Still feeling rough when I got back about 11 last night, but what a superb week.

Fantastic hosting job by the Germans, cracking roads and the atmosphere was excelent :respekt:

It was good to meet up with the guys and girls form Poland and Holland and Italians at the end, sorry I did not get to say goodbye to some of you as whatever flu/virus I have was still giving me grief, but I hope to see you all in Italy :thumbs:

WOW what a week. I need to do a very public thanx to Ronald and Rob from the Dutch contingent for sorting my clutch, getting Caulkies bike to a garage for the rear wheel bearing to be sorted. To Rob for taking me pillion so I could let caulkie ride my bike. That man can ride!!! I now just how much you can lean a ride two-up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Awesome!! You guys have my total respect, admiration and appreciation.

More thanx go to the Germans and the Italians for stopping when MY rear wheel bearing gave out on the way home. Nothing anyone could do and we didn't have to wait too long for the breakdown truck to take me to a BMW/Yam dealer in Euskirchen about 40 miles from Kronenberg. Credit to the garage for sourcing a new bearing - seems they are like rocking horse droppings in Germany - they stayed open late to get me sorted and even found us a hotel nearby for the night.

I'm still smiling about the impromptude strip tease by the Italians when I saw their t-shirts and said I'd like one. I wore my new (still slightly warm) italian shirt home!! (I'll sort a pic)

Moonraker, Poohbear and TJ - thank you for sharing the cabine, your company and the laughs.

I had a brilliant time and it was all down to the lovely people who attended. I'll party with all of you anytime!!!!

And to our German Brothers - thank you for an excellent week. See you all in Berlin ;)
Life goes on regardless . . . .
