6 months in Europe on a Duc

So, a little background & a pic to get this going.
Back in 2000 I ended up with a big stock pay-out & bonus check from the game company I worked for so I quit my job, shipped my Duc to my father's house in London, & started this ride.

Here's Rose, my 1995 Ducati 900 SS/SP. Named after an Australian girl I met near Sydney when I was 16. Not the normal Adventure ride. (That's me on the far right.)

In 1995 I got out of the US Air Force & left my wife (in the same week). I set a goal that in 2000 I'd own a Ducati & ride it around Europe. I had no idea how it'd work out but it did. Thank you to every child, teen, or parent who purchased Dungeons & Dragons game books, Magic: The Gathering or Pokemon cards.

Here's Rose without the baggage at a cafe in Italy.

The route which I planned & basically stuck to went from England to France, Spain, France again, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Czech Republic, Germany, Holland, Belgum, & back to London.
I had all my photos up on a friends site years ago but I wasn't able to maintain it & almost lost my photos. I've now got all 1000 or so of them up at:

I'll only put up the best ones here but if you like what you see go there. There are some there of a more adult nature so be warned. ;)
This thread is going to be an ongoing process for the next week or so so one last photo to get you interested.
