Bikeless now until I get back to the Holler. Thanks to all for their many kindnesses shown to this old hillbilly AKA 'the LARGE American' ... :D


Phil thank you for your kind offer and now I wish I had came in past the hotel but when I went past I thought that you would have probably long gone, anyway made it home, three separate recovery companies and a 7 hour journey but to be fair the cost of my recovery cover has paid for its self 6 or 7 times over as each stage of recovery was a minimum of £180.

Enjoy.

My personal favourite sequence is Derek without his pillion at the viaduct.

Brian, that's a sad sight. It's more typical of a certain forum I frequent with my old VW Camper. The Yellow Taxi thread on there has regular photos like this with everyone accepting that's the price for driving 40+ year old vehicles. The upside is often quoted that people get far better fuel consumption when they hitch the yellow taxi ride home :-)

Brian it was good to meet you, my hi-viz jacket came from http://www.urban-glow.com/index.html they aren't cheap but I got 10% discount as a member of Solent IAM and they offer the same to various other groups (see links page) so you should be able to blag something off if you phone them.

My Mrs was quite happy for me to have stayed another night for me to arrange a repair but to be honest the recovery home was the cheaper option, bike is back in my garage with the wheels off, I will be getting the tyres removed for a spot of paint refurbishing before the new rubber is fitted.

Thanks for the link , it was a great weekend, great company and the pictures are fantastic.

Roll on next year.!!

Well, back in the Holler late last night. M1 was actually not as bad as I expected, and into London was worse! Thanks to the 'security' procedures at the Atlanta Airport and the London flight being late, I almost missed my flight back to Nashville. Thanks to everyone and their many kindnesses shown to me - especially from that special angel - Miss Jo. I'd been up a stump if she hadn't been there to help when certain difficulties developed. And about my 'surprise' appearance - if you miss a BritSToc, you just never know what or who you might be missing ... :D Back to work this morning and hopefully my body will figure out what time zone I am currently in! ;-)
