    Just off down to Oakland to clear them now so all should be well in the next few hours.

    Go kick some ass dude....

    The ass kicking hasn't had the desired effect. Still bikeless.
    There are two opinions of the GS. There are those who have ridden one who think its fantastic and there are those who haven't who know its crap.

    Quick update and customs have changed the rules a bit to make it easier for us to get the bikes quicker. We will be running on a carnet which is strange in teh US but at least we will get the bikes.

    I'm with them early doors tomorrow so fingers crossed all will run smoothly

    Right, that's me off for a quick drink and a long sleep

    The bikes have finally arrived after 2 days of pleading and begging with US customs so all is well.........almost

    The container took a hit somewhere so the bikes had moved. All OK but mine and Aidans have broken side stands which is a pain but mendable thank goodness.

    Quick look round Alcatraz tomorrow and then head off on Sunday

    At the risk of teaching my grandmother to suck eggs, have you booked tickets ?

    When I was over there a while ago, mate of mine from the area said it's sometimes wise to book ahead "to avoid disappointment". He could have been bullsh1tting me cos he didn't fancy going there for the gazillionth time of course , but maybe worth a call today if there's any doubt, especially if you're going in numbers

    edit: your post quoted above is timed at 06.23 Saturday but says Alcatraz tomorrow then head off Sunday, so maybe your 'tomorrow' is Saturday due to time difference so this may be too late. Either way, hope you see it and have a good one.

    All tickets pre booked for Alcatraz. Whether they let us all off the island again is another matter........

    Remember we are 8 hours behind you so the posts will reflect that.

    Anyway, another lovely sunny California morning so better get my stuff together and head south the SF
