Torture museum, I was afraid that I would be forced to listen to bob dylan, but it wasnt that bad
Evil. Nothing else describes it.
We got to my friends in Hajdúszoboszló, Hungary.
Say that 3 times fast!
Hell, I cant say it at all!
Rusty from Slovakia delivered the 2 old Russian IMZ outfits we bought, and since we had a couple days left before the container arrived, we went to a swapmeet in Debrecen to find some more stuff to cram in it. Didn't find any bikes, but we found some doodads and parts.
Kelly hadn't been feeling good the last few days, and after this, he ended up in the hospital for a few days, some sort of intestinal infection. But he is all better now.
After the swapmeet, I stopped by to see a guys collection of stuff. He is still in buying mode, and didn't want to sell anything, but I had fun looking. The 1st bike is a Hungarian Pannonia TLB from the early 60s. I really like these.
Loading the container, this was a hot sweaty job, but it all fit. Probably good I didn't find anything else to buy, as we would have had to do a second level.
But that would have been ok......
Ol Patina Turner wasnt ready to leave yet, and laid down in protest.
I told her we'd do some more riding when she got home.
So there. Once again I did actually finish a ride report.
Now we have almost a week until we fly home from Frankfurt, so we will fly to Dortmund, rent a car, and do some dickin around in germany.
I get to stay home for 2 days, then fly to Utah, where I bought a Triumph Tiger, ride to Bonneville and pit crew for a friend, then head to Idaho for a couple relaxing weeks of camping and trout fishing in the mountains.
Theres still a month of summer left, I dont wanna waste it by working!
I'll keep posting some more pics from Germany
Thanks for following along!
This is a local guys collection of bikes. There was some pretty cool stuff here, most of it was Hungarian or eastern bloc stuff.
Back in Germany, my friend took us to Mohnesee, a lake held back by this dam. During the war, the Brits kept trying to blow it up, as there was alot of industry in the area, but the dam was well protected. So they devised a 'bouncing bomb' which skipped on the water like a stone, until it hit the bridge and blew it up
About 1300 people downstream died from the flood, including a bunch of POW's.
One of my cannonball friends is also into racing old cars, and invited us to a race at Dyck Castle near Dusseldorf. Damn, there were alot of cool cars there!
And a few bikes as well
Aww man, is that first picture a Bugatti T13? I'd love to have one of those. Great pics Doug!
Finished or not, I always enjoy your ride reports.
