Are we having fun or is it all just a cruel illusion?

Nice to see nobody's given in to temptation and drunk it!

If memory serves, we lost the bottle for about a month here in Oregon. It was supposed to have been dropped off at "The Sandy Bandit's (Cliff Majhor) shop in Portland for him to add a signature for the tube.
The guy who I passed it off to left it in his backpack after he got home from our 2005 May Show. I was very relieved to be able to send it on to the next leg of the relay.

Me and the bottle just prior to carrying it from Eugene, Oregon to Corvallis for the vintage motorcycle show.

Morgan, I'll look for the file, but it's possible that I no longer have the original.
I had a hard drive failure a couple of years ago, and while I thought I had everything backed up to DVD, there were quite a few photographs that I couldn't locate.
I didn't spend a lot of time looking, and it's possible that I somehow missed some.
I'll take another look at my collection of archive disks and see if I can find it. I'm pretty sure it was taken in May of 2005, so if I do a search for files timestamped 2005, I may be able to locate it.
I'll email it to you as soon as I have it.

August 2012 and the bottle was at the 49th. BSA International Rally held at Degeberga, Sweden. I had the honour of carrying it to Sandhammaren, the South Easternmost tip of Sweden on my A10.

Hey Ray, Good to see you at the rally and thanks for taking the bottle for another Ride. Bottle is again safe in BritBike Museum after Ray Burgess-Lowe rode it from the south east corners of Sweden to Gothenburg higher up on the west coast.
Cheers!

I wouldnt know how but anything is possible. Maybe it would involve a lot of shots with a non moving background and use a .gif file .... Not sure how to do it exactly though

There are websites that will take your uploaded photos (panomonkey.com for one). You need to have 30% - 50% overlap and the site software will stitch together a panoramic portrait for you using the photos you uploaded...

Send me the container Morgan, I'll give it a go! grin

Hello everybody
I should update the latest way of the bottle, since Morgan gave it to me.
On the way for the International BSA Rally at Valldal/Norway, i gave it a lift in my pic-up truck. But in good company with Mr. Tom Banks from the USA and my beloved BSA A1o "Dark Star".
The tour leads us from Gothenburg over a hot rod meeting to Norway. More than 850 km on great scenic roads,over worldfamous Trollstigen to Valldal.
Our mission was, to find somebody to drive the Guinness Bottle around and of course to tell the story about it. So we did, and at a International Rally of britbikes we should find somebody. First one of the chosen was Aad Otte from the Netherlands. I remember him and his family since the international rally at Waterland/NL 2000, and many years ago our daughters played together at the Swedish Rally/Mölle.
So it was up to him, to drive the bottleon his DB34 Gold Star from the camp over a fjord to Geiranger and further up to the top of the Dalsnibba mountain, 1500 meters above sealevel.Thanks, Aad, well done.

And we found another man with britbike history; the president of the Norwegian BSA Owners Club, Ronny Eriksen. His job was to bring back the fragile freight on partly rough roads on his B50 to the camp. Dont worry, he made it without trouble.

safe and sound at the rally site.Good job, thanks Ronny.

The next day, another trip at the rally. Time for the line up, down the Trollstigen it was Barry Porter from sunny California, who rode it.

Next to him is the man who brought it back to the camp. Geir Jacobsen from Norway. A man who raced Gary Nixon at Daytona! Interesting story, maybe Tom can tell us more about it, cause he talked to him. And Tom will also have more pics, when he got the bottle.
So much about the time at the rally. We had to leave a bit early and had to take another road as we planned. A fire in a tunnel and blocked road ended in 16 hours ride. We had to change direction and headed for a ferrycrossing to Danmark. So we couldnt bring back the bottle to Morgan. But i guess he trust me that i take good care of it. So i still have it, now here at home near Hamburg/Germany. And i will go on, and find somebody to ride it. Have already a few in mind...
So, dont worry, everything is under control.
In a few weeks there will be a Oldtimer race in Hamburg, and some friends from the Classic Britbike Club have a stall. Will report after the race, with pics of course.
Thats it for now.

Is there a "ports of call" record for where this bottle has been? (and who had it at each location?)

I'd be interested in seeing that...
