The last 2 days have been huge. We had 40 bikes to recrate and send home. Organised kaos is probably the best description. Everyone was tired and a little bit cranky. Everyone wanted to do there own bike. Despite a few prize dickheads it all went pretty well. This arvo we caught the bus back to Nijmegen from the warehouse for the last time. Tonight I'm going with peter to visit Eric. Eric is the creator of the famous swallower chain drive Guzzi. He is a great engineer and we are going to visit his workshop. Should be a hoot.
Tomorrow we will catch our breath before heading to Amsterdam on Thursday.

Today we departed cologne for the last leg of our Motorcycle journey. At was only a couple of hundred kilometres. It was nice to have a beautiful GPS & roadworks fuckup in the last 50kms just to finish the trip off.
Gertie is locked up at the hotel. We will wash her ready for repacking next week.
I guess this weekend we will just have to drink beer 😀

Today we had to get 450km from Zurich to Frankfurt. Most of that we did on the autobahn. It's not for the feint hearted. When you pop into the super fast lane you have to make sure you can't see any lights in your mirror. They come so fast that if you can already see them it's too late to pull out. I limit Gertie to 130km. The go sat like your in 1 st gear. It's very tiring.
While we let the GPS guide us today we were thrilled that it took us through a magnificent country detour that included a wooden bridge that was incredible. I'm sitting in the bar drinking German beer. Yum.

We have been watching a weather window that was our best chance to get up the Stelvio pass between Switzerland and Italy. Today was the day. We headed out of Saint Moritz at 9.30. It was cold. 2 hours later we were at over 3000 meters on the top of Stelvio pass. It was cold. Gertie was named after the famous pass. It was fitting that we took her up there
Tonight we went to the velodrome in Zurich. The derny racing was hectic
