    Martyn, Amsterdam is on my list for my wife and I so expect to hear from us!!! Would November be a bad time to visit?

    How is your new (one year old?) baby?

    p.s. We met at the ADV Rider camp out two years ago.

    She's two now and quite a handful, although she can make her own breakfast already:

    November will probably be rainy, but that shouildn't matter. Will you be on motorcycles?

    Checking in! And joining Reprobate/Martyn with an open invitation to ADVRiders who are visiting 'the dam'. So let me know of you want to have coffee, take ride or step aboard my small boat for a ADV-approved canal cruise ;-)

    I moved to Haarlem a few months ago from California (though originally from Northern Ireland). Just put down a deposit on a new Multistrada and can't wait to tour around Europe on it!

    Thanks! I may take you up on that. I have to wait a few weeks for the bike to arrive though. Horrible! :D

    Do you guys know of any NL bike clubs/forums?

    Depends what you are looking for... f.e. general motorcycle clubs, or brand related clubs?

    Allroad / Adventure: http://www.transalpclub.nl/forumrc2/ (Honda XRV Africa Twin / Transalp / Varadero)

    BWM clubs are generally also very active in the Low Lands.

    ha! Probably not on my first ride. That would be embarrassing :p

    I'm hoping there won't be any more snow this winter. The 3 or so weeks of it were enough for me.

    Managed to find some NL forums. I'm thankful for Google Translate.

    From mid next week, temperatures will get down to freezing again. Fair chance for more snow.

    Hard to believe... today +12 Celsius... last Friday -8 ...

    Welcome in the Low Lands... :lol3

    Nice! My rides won't go much further than Germany for the spring.

    Maybe some nice riding in France this winter, I think I got my GF to the point that we're going on a motorcycle holiday together :D
