    Doug, Great to see you again at the Old Skool rally. Wish you could have stayed...at least you got to see me make the embarrassing return for my wallet before you took off Saturday morning (yellow VFR):shog
    Hope to cross paths with you again someday. Thanks for the awesome ride report brother...:thumb

    We all know this one ended happily ever after. I think he is referring to this years adventure.

    Doug, in case you missed it Walter C has had his bike stolen in Holland.

    You probably have more 'unofficial' connections than anyone in Europe, specially if the bike heads East.

    Can you spread the word with your contacts to look out for it.

    Tx for helping out a fellow Brit.
