    Great to meet all of you and especially you Becky - another female rider on a 650GS. I don't know about you but I'm not sure I will 'grow up' to a 12 like Orla - Dakar Gal, but three females riding is pretty good.......and before the comments come in I know I'm not always aboard but I do try to keep the bike upright when the pics from the holiday get posted, Brian wrestling with photobucket as I write, you will see I had another little episode
    But there you go as Brian tells me it is all part of the adventure. By the way you had more sun than us down south. We had Sun,Rain, Rain, Rain, Gales,Rain, Sun-ish, and eventually sun as we rode home from Waterford.
    Is Fletcher a future female rider?? She certainly is at home behind her dad.

    Hope to meet you all again

    The bacon recipe was from the American Journal of Cardiology, an article entitled: "Arteries, how to clog 'em with crap 'n fags".

    Finally got home on Tues evening at 7pm. I've had a great 2 weeks of solo touring, including time on the Stelvio and around Lake Garda. 5,000 miles in 14 days, lots of beer, sun and friendly folk along the way.

    Packing for next year begins tomorrow.

    Just 'cos you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you !
