    Just booked the chunnel for the Italian Job ( on bikes ) in a few weeks time
    So far 1150GS, 2 x 1200GS, Deauville ( I think but canna remember ! ) and the wing

    Funsters going are Richard ( The Scotties ), Brian ( Hilldweller ) and myself

    Out on the 27th of July, back on the 3rd of August.. Destination Riva Del Garda and a massive piss up with the German and Italian !!

    As a couple of the others do not have either the stamina or the butt quality it will be a two day run there and two days back

    If anyone fancies it shout me up

    Hi, I am one of 20 cars/motorbikes doing the "race for freedom " in aid of the forces charities.
    Going Calais to south of France, Monaco, Grenoble, Milan,Stelvio, Klosters, Baden Baden the back to Calais and the drive back to Dundee !!
    4000 + miles, so if you see us give us a wave, there is a mix of cars and bikes but there is at least 5 Mx5's !
    I will be in the red Mk2 with the roof down !! hopefully all the way !!

    Put me down to go please.
    I reckon I can just make it at a push.
    Taking Jan to a music festival in the van that weekend but reckon I can get home in time to get to Dover late on Sunday night ready for the chunnel on Monday. Can take 5 hours to Dover from here so it'll have to be Sunday and some kip in a B&B, getting home is not a problem so I'm in I reckon.
    Be first trip on my new bike only go it yesterday gotta run it in and get first service done bummer they can't do it until 16th.
    Oh well give me time to hunt tent out of the attic and my camping gear and fathom out how I'm gonna tie it in a brand new bike.

    Ferry booked outbound.

    In bound, not sure, I'll have my freedom and an "adventure bike" , be a shame to rush it. BRNO MotoGP has just been confirmed.

    God knows. Just dreaming. But if the weather is kind and it is August, I Feel The Need.

    There are so many places where I've said "****** motorhome, if only we were on a bike". Quite recently travelling from Mugello to Garda, then Garda to Germany. I've lots of unfinished business.

    For the first time TomTom too charge of some routes, it found routes to die for on a bike that were half an hour in second at 20 mph Up, followed by half and hour at 20 mph in second Down with a nasty hot smell. We pulled into view points and cursed the bikers on there.

    Not quite we are going on motorbikes.

    However, Jaws is always being mistaken for John Travolta and submitting to the demands of insatiable women.

    Brian on a 650 V Strom. Rory on a BMW, unknown but surely a GS, and Edgy, almost certainly a GS coz everywhere I go there are herds of GSs all with the inevitable tin boxes on the back.
