Got home late last night (left early coz I got a wedding to go to today). Was an awesome week. Total respect to everyone who made the effort to get there . . even if the Germans and the French trailered their bikes. Was great to party with the Italians, French, Dutch, Germans, Polish and Croatians. Only one bike got binned (rider and bike OK) but as it happened behind me it's not my story to tell. Can we do it again next year?
Life goes on regardless . . . .

Well, what can I say, a fantastic 8 days, a very well organised eurofest, I feel sorry for the Dutch trying to better that. I must say that for me, the high light was coming back through the Swiss Alps, no long tunnel for us, straight over the top. ( Hard Core ) 7000ft up, even getting lost and the seven of us ending up on a foot path was just all part of leaving the dream. :thumbs:
Lookin forward to the video Ratty

Hats off to BLOSS , only been riding for four months and she done the trip with no problems.
Thats what I call Hard Core :thumbs:
