    Hmm, Grimbergen. :1drink

    There's a few of us here, at least 2 with the same bike as you. And most of them can be found on motorforum.be as well. Chime in there if you feel like it, we go out for a ride from time to time.

    Back into riding after a ten year break. Two weeks in July through the Alps and down to the Riviera, everything still intact. Most weekends are free. Cheers.

    Used to drive through Grimbergen to the A12, coming from Neder-Over-Heembeek, when cars were not moving on the "Ring".

    Hey all Belgians reading this...

    Guess this is not the right thread to post this, but I give it a shot... I am currently on my way around the world on my 1937 Nimbus, see my website www.kccd.no. Tomorrow I´ll deliver the bike for shipping to Africa, and in the meanwhile I´m off to Europe to visit home in Norway a couple of weeks.

    This coming weekend I´m doing a presentation for FEMA in Brussels, and need a place to stay but the hotels are friggin expensive (when you´re used to travel in developement countries at least).

    Anybody in Brussels or anybody know somebody there that can take in a worn fellow ADV rider from Friday 1th to Sunday third? If so, please mail me at tormod.amlien (at) gmail.com or PM me here. Also interested if any of you know a cheap hostal or hotel around!

    Hope to hear from somebody!

    Best regards,

    Hi all...
    I'm originally from Belgium (Haacht) but living in Brazil since Jan. 2009...
    I've been working almost 2 years to set up a new motorcycle tour company, so if any of you guys ever want to check out the Brazilian outback, you know where to find me. Adventure guaranteed!
    Ride safe and hopefully see you in Brazil some day.

    Grtz

    Hey Croesus, I don't live in belgium anymore, but my son does... I'll give him a call to see if you could stay at his place. He lives in Keerbergen (+/- 30km from Brussels)

    BTW... Checked out your site and this trip you're making looks pretty awesome... I see you passed through Brazil. Hope you had a good time here.

    Cheers...
