just back from Normandy

Recommended Posts

just got back from Normandy with my m20 had some great times and ride outs,144 Brit wd bikes riding together sure looked good and sounded even better ,finished up in Arromanche ,all parked on seafront and then took all the bikes down onto the sand for photos etc and left 144 oil stains on the pavement so anyone there in the future will know where we parked.for pictures check out the wdm20 website

It was good to meet friends old and new out there although fc101daz and his brother Greg looked about the same as I felt sunday morning after we stayed in the campsite bar with several mad Irishmen until 3.20am

glad to hear you got back ok ,we made the ferry with about five minutes to spare ,the drinking couldnt have been my fault I was too p"££ed to make an important decision like that.It is a shame that I see you have a matchless now cos I could have thought about selling you mine(not) but you wouldnt want 2 would you

Daren,

 

I was in the bar as they were setting up and heard someone say they were going to show "On Any Sunday". It featured motorcycle sport across the US.
