Back on the forum after a few years away. Parked up the K100RS 16 valve when I acquired the Ducati ST2. The wife was riding her F800ST back then. The F800 has now gone, she has pinched my Ducati ST2 and I have a cute little Ducati 848 SBK.
The K100RS was looking very sad and not being used so we have decided to turn it into a naked bike with different styling. It will be a spare bike for us.
We are know to some forum members, Crazy Frog has visited here as have some of the Irish contingent - some are back here next month!
We have signed the banner.

Not really surprised. Olaf and Will and some others have had some good times down here. Will is on his way back again (4th time I think) next month.
Olaf's bike will always be remembered as the "Tardis". Just never mention his tent next to the river!
We are still helping out bikers who visit this area.

Yes that was Bruno's Cafe/hotel/restaurant as it was, but it has now closed down. The Cafe further along the road in the village has now become the bikers HQ.
Will, Olaf and me in the picture with Bruno.

Good to have you back Bob .
That banner is currently with TWB in the USA, preparing for its journey back to Australia .
It has certainly travelled a few miles ( oooops! K's).

This is the new meeting place, 100 meters down the road from where Bruno was. Picture was taken last Sunday when we had a small ride out for lunch. This little group consisted of 3 Ducatis, one is out of the picture, a visiting BMW K1600 and a visiting Honda. Another ride out is planned for Saturday with some more visitors from the UK.

Its really good to have you back....some great times down your way and more to come.

Definitely on for a trip down next May and have been adding some new camping gear. The Krauser Pandora's boxes panniers are great and the camp site at St Leon is the perfect place for recharging the batteries.

Olaf.

Don't tell me Olaf, you have worked out how to fit four panniers to your bike and you now have a fully fitted kitchen in one of them.
I was amazed when you pulled out two matchboxes and turned them into a pair of chairs!
You are welcome, as you know, and if you have a pair of decent earplugs you can follow my Ducati anytime. affraid

For the chairs, here in North America we really like our comfort. Don't asked me how many people pissed in their pants laughing when they saw us arriving at a MOA rally with the chairs stacked on the top case. We were young and foolish. Oh I haven't changed. Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed

Gee I never thought of that. A pillion backrest and chairs all in one!! Must try that one. Would go well with the bbq that fits inside the top case.

But...why three chairs? Is that to rest the feet on?
