    Well the bikes are ready the stuff is all packed i just have a nights sleep to get and we are off for our summer trip
    will be departing first thing in the morning weather is forcast to be miserable so that is normal
    We should be away for about 12 days and will be riding in a few different countries Scotland, England, Holland. Germany and Belgium
    We just have to take note of each countries speed limits as we cross the various borders and think about riding on the correct side of the road for the country we are in

    I will catch up on what is happening on the forum when i get back as i travel without any technology

    Brian; I'm so sorry to hear of your "incident", but very glad to hear that you (and bike) suffered relatively minor damages. Although every time you take a breath, it doesn't seem so minor.
