    You'll fit right in, most Brits wont serve you up anything too flashy, just good home style country cooked meals...especially hack riders!:lol3

    Try the meat pies & heated "cold pork pies", gees you might get one of the gals to make you a pavlova!

    Have a great trip, see you at the dog!!

    Brits don't know Amurican, and "spotted dick" to a limey is steamed pudding with currents. Brits aren't known for their cooking, but I don't think you can get a communicable disease from one of their deserts.

    Howdy Steve,

    "You" don't live in or near Granite falls Washington, the average annual precipitation here is 89 inches. Its right NOW pouring down rain and we are well ahead of the yearly average for this time of year. :puke1

    I've lived in Eugene since 1983 and the fall/winter/spring weather this year feels like what it was like when I first moved here; endless rain.
    Have a great trip Dave....

    Howdy redbastard,

    The words "sunny England" was an attempt at irony, the weather can't be worse there then what I have in my corner of the Nor-Wet. :deal

    Howdy Dan,

    I am now on the evening of day number three in the UK, I have been having a GREAT time, sampling many different types of WARM beer and have seen some wonderful country. I am having too much fun to post much at this time but I'll do a proper ride report sometime in June after I have finished doing the "Black Dog" rally in Oregon.
