    Back to Reality.....

    God I'm knackered....

    Even though I took an a excessive amount of stick at times over my assumed sexual preferences from certain members of the group, I enjoyed every minute..

    Good company..great roads..good weather and all while riding your bike...life doesn't get much better!!!

    Will try to meet up again later in the year (Bryns event) if I'm allowed

    Well done again Paul

    Got home safely, no problems on route.
    Thanks to Paul for doing the sorting, well done.
    Met some really good people and hope to meet up again in the future.
    Will try to post some pictures when i sort out how.
    Thanks again and ride with care.

    PS, Flash, it sounds as like the trashing for breaking down on the way to Mainz paid off.
    Hope you made it home OK.

    Well done Paul, what a fantastic trip!

    Apologies for separating from Gadget, Seamus & Sue on the way to Calais but it looks like I made the right decision as I caught the early ferry with rest of the group.

    Only got home this afternoon 'cos I stayed a night in Dover.

    Just d/loaded my photos & there are some crackers!
    Give me a while to d/load them to Photobucket & I'll post the link.


























    Some on-board shots..

    Thumbs up

    Had enough of riding at the back and got the big un on, caught the train and made it home just after 4pm.

    Great time, thanks Paul for arranging the trip "Top Bloke" and to all for the great company, got some memories I never forget !

    Didn't feel the same riding the old girl to work this moring, she was begging for the twisties and maybe a cheese and ham omlete !

    Cheers once again, and hope I catch up with you again sometime.
    Where next Paul ??

    Hi Paul, The Exon Valdeze and I Stayed with Seamus & Sue and met up with Graham & mark at a petrol station, and I was persuaded along with everybody else to go to Ypres before we boarded the 6.35pm Ferry. It was certainly a holiday to remember thanks to your great organisational skills Paul, but God was I tired at work today.One upshot was that riding the bike today without all the luggage was a real treat, and a couple of Supermoto's were surprised when I shot past them and stayed ahead.

    Cheers Paul and to all the other Tossers who were such great company.

    Ken.
