Marty left our house this morning to meet françois in Holland. As soon as he takes out his bike, despite the weather forecast, it doesn't rain here anymore... ..funny. We had a nice time together, he's a charming person with a great sence of humour...even my 2 cats loved him grin.gif I escorted him to the highway to Antwerp and gave him a big goodbye hug. He's my oldest friend now smile.gif I know he doesn't like the word "old" but he still has the mind of an 18 year old boy...."Bye Marty ! Ride safe ! Enjoy the rest of your trip"

 

Here are some pics :

 

parked his bike next to mine in my garage : left is my oldest son Bram, then Marty and right my wife Caroline

The only thing missing was the sun

the next day we went to visit "La coupole" near Saint-Omer. It's a bunker where the germans fired the V1's and V2's towards London & Antwerp. Outside it stayed like it was, inside it's a modern museum... very imposing

In front of my house, ready for take off

Sorry I didn't make more pictures (and I sized them too little)... must have been the cold or the red wine...

 

I greet you all on the board thumbsup.gif

So, it is true!!!!! Marty is in Europe. I have heard many stories of his being there, but not much substantiated proof of such a tale.

 

As they say, pictures are worth a thousand words!!

Which sticker is the Biker Club sticker that Marty got to safeguard him on his travels?

It couldn't be the ADV sticker could it? dopeslap.gif

 

Marty, glad you're having a great stay on the other side of the pond thumbsup.gif
