@Ed also tell you that next year the banner can be hosted in the largest winter concentration in Spain "Cantalejo" formerly known as "PINGUINOS".

They will be very happy to be able to exhibit the baner and I will also be in the next KEDADA ALICANTE

The Banner is currently with me and along with the K100 Forum banner is due to come to France on Saturday to meet up with Crazy Frog.

The sKroll no longer has the cardboard tube....I expect it wore out along the way. It arrived to me flat in great condition. Great stories to tell too.

I got the banner tube, I used to screw it to take it to the K fets
But I can send it home or to another place that you indicate

On the other hand I see that this end of week you meet with Bertrand.
I was already engaged in Barcelona with another meeting of kas
I really want to meet you in person but I have to improve my English

Ok I thought it had come without it. I brought the plastic tube I use for the sKroll to K Fest because the cardboard tube is precious so important not to lose it.

All is OK Olaf , the tube Ricardo has is a new postage tube , used only once to get to him in Spain . Ricardo can do with it what he wishes .
I still have the original postage tube ( as pictured below ) which was used to konvey the sKroll to the UK and other places in 2015. 



I also have the tube which has been home to the sKroll in Australia during its travels .

The Skroll is now in my possession, and next week it will be en route to North America.

Just for the fun
The forum's banner is traveling in France on the back seat of my car.
Yesterday, I was driving on the highway and saw a K100 in front of me. I ask my wife to unfold the banner and stick it on the side window.
I passed this German rider beeping my horn like a mad Frenchman and driving at 150 km/h. When he saw the banner and realized that it was about the K100 (I doubt that he knows the Forum), I got a big thumb up.

You cause chaos wherever you go.......what's that poor man going to tell his friends??

As for the poor waitress in Rodez, she isn't forgetting the crazy French Canadian and mad Irishman either. I am not used to a waitress going mad when I order lunch.....

I blame it all on the profiteroles you thought you didn't want.

Now I realise your wife is a mad as the rest of us for doing as you suggested. What a great forum.

Bert is in France leaving 3rd July and not on the forum very much. He took delivery of a very significant quantity of pudding at Millau and I am led to believe it is being consumed on a nightly basis.


We won't hear very much from him before 5th July.

I'll be idling through upstate NY so will ping you as I approach. I tend to ride two laners when possible so route 20A looked like it fit the bill.

20A is a good road.  Not real twisty, but nice scenery and decent speed on better than average pavement.  Not a bad way to get West to East across Western New York.

I'll take it further east, but you can't  get much further east than where Bert is.

I'm not quite sure yet , if Bert may bring it across to NY State . Will have to wait and see what his plans are.

Just want you to know TWB that you are more than welcome to stop off here for food, lodging or a berth for the GT in my shop if that works in to your travel plans.  I'm about an hour from the 20A.  There's a blue heeler here that runs the place, but overall she's fairly easy going now.

That's good to know and mighty generous, Woodie. Thanks.

My destination is my daughter's house in western Massachusetts, a town in the Berkshires called Greenfield, where 'a river runs through' called the Connecticut, in the Pioneer Valley.

Aside from toodling round W MA visiting old riding mates, I'll also visit my younger brother who lives 'on golden pond,' an hour from Boston on the New Hampshire border. Bert will be several hours from there, and far closer than upstate NY, but I'm no one to deny a man a ride.

Blue Heeler?  

Everyday is an eduction - so I'd love an explanation of what that expression means. The English language is full of odd (and often derogatory) terms like that, usually relating to some historical event or clash of cultures.

I'll let Woodie explain what a blue heeler is...
But in the meantime, Paul, you must surely have seen Bella before?
She's my red heeler. Smile

Shouldn't we 'merge' this thread with the main Banner post? It'll take a just a tick and the pertinent information will be made available to all interested in one single place.

Well I'm definitely no expert on the breed but the heelers are also known as Australian cattle dogs.  She's no pure bred but her personality is 100% heeler.  Blues and reds refer to the colour of their coat.  I don't know what all the breeds are that went into creating these canine marvels but dingo is in the blood in spades.

This is Licky, named by my son 11 years ago.  Only in the last two years has she stopped jumping the 6' fence in our backyard.  If she was in the backyard it was only because she chose to stay in the backyard.  She is the only mutt I have ever owned that has fought me to a draw.  I would have to say that she tries to negotiate almost everything.  She's a royal pain in the ass but i lover her to bits.

Check out this lovely '80s footage...

Blue Heelers in action

I have seen some nervousness in the breed, but they're generally not terribly aggressive with people.
