Looks like the Mafia have got nothing on those dudes
Finish and a bonus. Wahhhhooooooo! Thanks Doug for sharing your adventures they are always great to follow. On the edge of the seat for the rest of your travels over there.
Regarding the "horse" riding in the torture museum.....I recall reading about British Army punishments meted out to miscreant soldiers during the Seven Years' War in North America. The horse was a standard punishment, but its use had to be discontinued because it injured the convicted soldiers so much that they could no longer march (or at least not for a good while). The generals needed as many men as possible fit and fighting, not staying behind in hospital recovering from "horsing around." Substituted hundreds of lashed for it....usually reduced to a survivable number just before starting, and sometimes reduced to none for minor crimes.
Great report, as always, Doug! Some really interesting cars and bikes at that show!
Enjoyed your travelogue. Thanks for posting
Thanks for taking us with you.
I rarely buy a harley shirt at a dealership, but I was really bummed they didn't have this one in my size. The bike pictured is not a harley, it's a WW2 Indian scout.
Our last day in Germany, we visited the Horex museum in Bad Homburg
Horex comes from Bad Homburg, the town they were located, and Rex, which was the familys company that made glass bottles and similar.
They made bikes from around 1920 to 1960.
I flew home yesterday. I get to spend a whole 2 days at home, then I fly to Utah where I jump on a triumph tiger I bought, and head to Bonneville, for the races, then up to Idaho and Montana for some trout fishing and camping, before I head home.
Here's the route I did on the WLA. 8000km, about 5000 miles, with no major repairs or problems.
Which is pretty odd for one of my trips!
Was the Horex V-twin a one of one , prototype ?
from what I understand, it was a one off. id never seen one before.
They didn’t have any new ones?
That motor looks so nice.
What a great trip! Thanks for taking us along!
You must be referring to Capt.Sobel who lead them through the intense training, who got booted after the noncoms lead the mutiny.
Groove shite Doug! Thanks.
