Cold, wet, and cranky

Cold, wet, tired, and cranky... a long day of riding in the rain...At least we have a nice room in an old Scottish hotel..
        Sunday August 19th   Dear Family & Friends,   Another couple of days and more sites and adventure.. Yesterday we left Ullapool and rode north east. Our route took us along the coast to the very north east tip of the British Isle and then down the east coast to Inverness. As we rode along in the morning we passed Castle Mey so we...
Our new friends Rob and Ian.. Today was the main event of the Classic TT. A three lap race (37 miles per lap) and it was for 500cc motorcycles. Most where 500cc singles of the 1950s and 1960s. Nortons, AJS, Velocettes, etc. They went amazingly fast for such old motorcycles. This is a very tight twisty street track and the...
Saturday Oct. 22ndDear Family & Friends,It seems as we approach the end of our adventure time is really going by fast..We spent two enjoyable days in Strausbourg, France.. I would highly recommend the city for a stop on any tour of Europe. It is located on the Northern edge of France right along the German boarder, so it has mixture of French and German culture there. It is a very old city with classic old architecture, a 1000 year old cathedral, a beautiful town square and gentle flowing canals throughout the city. A great place to stroll around. I took several long walks while there and thoroughly enjoyed myself..  Easy to get lost there with all the twisty streets but I completely turned off my navigational responsibilities and left it up to Duane..  We always eventually got back to our hotelOur hotel is a grand old hotel in classic European fashion. Lots of wood details and paneling and an elevator that looked like it was built in the 1800s. An all wood and glass elevator with a wrought iron gate.. Even though it was very old, it worked most of the time.. There were a couple occasions I had to walk the five floor of stairs to get to my room.After two days there it was time to keep moving.. Since we were both tired of riding in big cities and the country side here is so beautiful I booked us rooms in Luxembourg in the small village of Diekrich. It was an easy 2 3/4 hour ride from Strasbourg and the last hour was through some beautiful country lanes passing along villages and forests.. A bonus is the Luxembourg National Automobile Museum was two blocks from our hotel!.  The ride was easy and mostly dry ( a few sprinkles) but as we go father and father north and it is getting to be late fall it is getting COLD! Today it never got out of the 40s range and with the wind chill factor it certainly felt cold. (even with all our riding gear and electric jackets)Once we arrived we checked into our hotel and walked around town. That took about ten minutes. We had lunch and I went for a walk on my own. During my walk I passed by the Luxembourg National Car Museum.....
Friday July 13th Dear Family & Friends, Today was our first full day in Lake Como and it did not disappoint. But before I get into our day I would like to discuss some social issues of Italy since I like to observe different cultures. First, one of the things I am really starting to miss about home is going to a...

Friday June 8th Dear Family & Friends, Today was about as close to perfect as you can get on a motorcycle trip! I got up this morning after a good nights sleep, had a good Irish full breakfast and got on my motorcycle ready to explore… I had no particular destination but I thought the city of Cork was at least the right...
We hate to be wimps but it is just to hot here! We arrived at 6pm and it was still 104 out! So we decided to walk around late in the evening when it was only 90 out and take a few photos. Not the best quality. Tomorrow we are going to head north as fast as possible to...
