Considering you had so much free time to travel around before heading to Labanon, I am surprised that your schedule never brought you to Greece for next weekends Harley Davidson rally ....... here is a link http://www.superrally.gr/default.aspx


Looking forward to more of your ride report

Wicked defintely front page stuff !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

[quote=rtwdoug]The flight to Frankfort was ok, altho delayed due to the euro ash cloud, I got here about 7 hours later than planned. Flight was ok tho, & as the seat next to me was empty, I was able to sleep a little bit. Klaus from Chopper Club Germany picked me up, & we went to his house to wait on the bikes. I was hoping they would be here today or tomorrow, but of course, US customs were dickin around, & didnt even clear the bikes til monday morning, & wouldnt fly til Wednesday.
Liam from Ireland showed up wed, & Poly got here thurs. We just sorta hung out seein some sights for a few days.
Bikes finally arrived here saturday morning, (seems they went to Luxembourg, & had to be trucked the rest of the way) but as the CCG party had started & was 200km north of here, we just got the crate from the airport, unloaded the bikes, & rode to the party with Klaus & Bianca in the van.
I shipped with cargolux, very nice people, & Lennie, the agent at the airport was very helpful, & they let us uncrate the bikes at the cargo terminal, as we had no way to haul the full crate. Nothing was damaged, which was nice. I will use them for future shipments.

we went to the Polo store, a big bike gear chain in germany, as Poly wanted a helmet, & I always find stuff that I think I cant live without.


they had a cafe there also, which was handy, to have a place to sit while Poly shopped for new pants.

she tried every pair at least once, and of course I had to stand there & give my opinion on each pair.
I keep telling her get what you like, but she seems to always want my opinion.
'does my butt look big in these?'
jesus, just buy a pair of pants.
hahaha

a cool thing in the store is the wind tunnel, where you can sit on a bike & try helmets at speed.
pretty cool idea!
when you twist the throttle, the wind gets faster. it pegged out at 122.8kph tho
of course she had to try every helmet also.
