Czech Trip 2008



4-18 August 2008

Link to VMAX Rally 

And what a lark that was

Well had a great time across Europe it was warm and sunny almost every day which was nice as we got texts from folk at home saying how horrid it was

It has been a shock coming home, and I am meant to be camping this weekend

We rode up and down the Rhine, I think the way back was far prettier and along the Danube it was superb

The German/Austrian forests were great as well and not just as the provided some well needed shade

Prague was as pretty as ever, but I had forgotten about the horrors of cobbles and trams which do not stop

A good bunch of mates as well, and a truly international crowd as well as we had Dutch, Swiss and Belgiums with us

In total we rode nearly 2200 miles,

and it was really sad as friends peeled away on the way home

the VMA rally at the end was great and has its own page


and a big thanks to Otto, Bob, Linda, Anne, Jackie, Ian, Maggi, Chris, Mitch, Bob and Bert

and all the others who joined in it was brilliant
