    Me with my Vespa PX and my mate Blane's LML at John Frost Bridge in Arnhem..
    ("A Bridge Too Far").
    Taken last month,en route to the Scooterists Meltdown in Kalkar,Germany.
    Quite a poignant moment,riding across the bridge,over the Rhine,and into Germany.

    There actually is something to do in Kalkar? I lived there from 1999 - 2002 and I don't remember anything exciting happening in that place.

    Oh yes indeed mate.

    A nutty guy bought the abandoned nuclear power station and turned it into a theme park !!! :huh

    The first weekend in February last year and this year saw it being a scooter themed party weekend with custom show,parts fair and bands plus DJs.

    The place is now called Wunderland.

    The event is Scooterists Meltdown.

    Google them. :deal

    How could I not recognize Carpenter's Bluff bridge.

    I will be back. Never took the time to find an access to the river shore. I need to do that.

    Thanks again!

    I know where the bike is sharp and the background panned it does look photoshoped, but I assure you it isn't. Its the perspective, the bridge was much wider than it looks and I wasn't in any danger. I have the RAW file somewhere.....
