Me with my Vespa PX and my mate Blane's LML at John Frost Bridge in Arnhem..
("A Bridge Too Far").
Taken last month,en route to the Scooterists Meltdown in Kalkar,Germany.
Quite a poignant moment,riding across the bridge,over the Rhine,and into Germany.

There actually is something to do in Kalkar? I lived there from 1999 - 2002 and I don't remember anything exciting happening in that place.

Oh yes indeed mate.

A nutty guy bought the abandoned nuclear power station and turned it into a theme park !!!

The first weekend in February last year and this year saw it being a scooter themed party weekend with custom show,parts fair and bands plus DJs.

The place is now called Wunderland.

The event is Scooterists Meltdown.

Google them.

How could I not recognize Carpenter's Bluff bridge.

I will be back. Never took the time to find an access to the river shore. I need to do that.

Thanks again!
