So how is the Lasko beer? Should I see if it's available at the local beer store?

I would guess that beer is a standard sort of pilsner with no distinctive qualities.

Nice, eh? Chinese?!? In France? NO. Just no.
Hope they get some fine cheese in them.... and some good bread to eat it with. Shoulda done just 400 miles and landed in the country.

Wow. Just wow. I have figured out my life's goal and that is to do some ride similar or even just half of what this is looking like. This is a ride of a lifetime for anyone! I'm loving the fireplace and wood and the rabbit ears over the dude haha What a view you lads had!

Incredible. I'm green with envy.

Cheers, mates

Well dudes here's a bit of an up date for y'all..... wink

We escaped Slovenia and that bloody rain, had a hell of a ride across Italy, robbing bastards make ya pay through the nose to use their motorway, but what ya gonna do right...?

Then we hit French France and WoW like, WOW man dude, these roads arr just pure Pawsome, proper wiggly up in them there moutains. And best of all its HOT hot and dry, we crashed into a cheapo motel, and NO Lannis lad. Not a shyte hole like that one WE had.... ; )


Just a cheap place to crash in Nice, a belly full of Chinky then, off out next morn for Cannes, and a mooch amongst the topless and millionares. Before setting up in the mountains again at a wonderful campsite, a belly full 'O'Ale and wonderful sites. I tells ya dudes....This is the life.... beerchug

Dudes another day in paradise, Azure sky and clear Blue water in the lake, nothing more needed. On with the swimming togs and in the fresh water we did go, all sun burnt now but well worth it. ..... grin


Out on the Ale this evening, and hooked up with a German BMW rider, him and his English wife are on their way to Southern Italy. But talking with him, I think a Muvafuka tour to Germany is on the cards next time...... wink

Trouble is, so many places to visit, and no holiday time to visit them.... frown

Strange how things go, there's a lad in the campsite, a lone Olde Honda rider. We got to talking and bugger me if he don't know a mutual friend.... shocked

So a call to the mutual friend and what do ya know, he's only in his French house, just 400 miles from where we're sat.... shocked

So sod the plans lets get over for a beer with Worcester Nick, it'll be a right good crack. And a Muvafuka tour is all about the crack man... :bigt

Living the dream, Shaun mate! Enjoying every mile. Rose even commented that she'd have had a hard time choosing between the desserts. The lemon tarts, the egg custards, Eclairs! They all look scrumptious. But the scenery is unreal. Beautiful. Stay safe and enjoy the trip you've living!

Cheers

Rich

It was atll change again today, after getting in touch with Nick, the lad who we were staying with. He informed us it was a tad inconvenient for us to stay......

No worries we'll carry on with plan 'A' then, packed the tents and hit the road, 400 miles later, we've made it to the Black Forest in Germany. And tomorrow we're planning a visit to the Bugatti museum in Mulhouse, just over the boarder in French France. .....

The owner of thiz campsite, is also a Harley owner, he told us of a biker meet arranged by his mates, just 14km away. So after our fill of Bugatti's we'll see how the Germans do a bike meet....

More later dudes I'm in me pit shattered and need me kip.....

Had a message from Shaun this morning. The Muvafukas are on the move. Turned their front wheels towards home.

WHAT A RIDE... shocked

3050 miles on the clock, 10,000,000,000 dead flies on the wind shield, 1000lbs of dirt all over the chrome. Tyres showing signs of wear, and the lower exhaust pipe showing scrapes from the mountain roads... wink

Man and machine in perfect harmony, there and back, safe and sound, thanks to Tom Bro Dude, and the Big Yin for posting my whatsapp photos. Once I get the photos off the camera, I'll spin a yarn to make ya toe nails curl, till then, hold very tight please.... :bigt
