A lot happening in the Netherlands that weekend :D I'm tying it in with an H-D rally, 't Centrum near Utrecht. Don't worry, it's a Federation event rather than a HOG one so attracts the more old school Harley rider and chaps aren't obligatory lOl

Hi Mick,

I'm not worried about the distance, getting there without getting lost is my bugbear. I can't see shit at short distance (reading) & certainly can't read a satnav without glasses which then means I can't see longer distance to ride ha ha.

All the best Paul.

:idea: Satnav with earpiece

(Sorry, I messed up the previous quote)


Hi Yeah,

Thanks for the suggestions.
Osteveo is looking at a system now, so hopefully he'll let me know if that works, talks to his phone, sat nav & whispers in his ear also.

Right, Eurotunnel booked for the Friday and return on the Monday, total of £68 return per bike :yup:

A couple of months ago for some reason it was fully booked, but now available, so if you are planning on going but haven't booked anything up as yet, I would do it asap :yup:

I was looking to go to this but spending money on the bike instead.
Thanks for the invites to go across with other UKBEG members.
Sorry I can't do it.

So, how many people here are going to this? There were quite a few people interested but not sure how many have actually signed up for this. The ones I know about are as follows:

Pepper2
SillyB
Me
Ade
Ursus

Anyone else?

I believe you can still register, turn up and pay your €10 for camping, you just don't get the t-shirt :yup:

Well, what a fabulous Buell meeting that was. The facilities were fantastic, great cameraderie, great band, fabulous food and a very well run meet. Easily 200 people there. All credit to Ron Tosseram and friends. See you all next year. Xx

What a fantastic weekend at the Dutch party . yes Jill you are spot on .
Apart from my bike playing up and having to be rescued by Ron twice .
Once from the petrol station about 4 miles from the party on the saturday
afternoon and then on the sunday morning from a petrol station about a mile
down the road . We spent most of the saturday afternoon in the owner of the campsites
workshop trying to sort it out . many of the dutch lads came to see if they could help ,
and we thought we had sorted it as it started running fine . But in the morning it started
playing up again . :headbang:
we new we had to get moving to catch the ferry and eventually the bike behaved its self .
Also Kevmean decided to try and get better fuel economy out of his bike by filling it with
DIESEL and was duly awarded the nobhead of the weekend award by Ron .
So a big thank you goes out to Ron and the Dutch Bueller who made this week end exceptional
cheers Mark .
P.S. they awarded me the best Buell on site award.
cheers lads :yup:

What a fantastic weekend :-) and as Pepper says we both got an award lOl thankfully when I tried my alternative fuel experiment I only topped the tank up so only put 5 litres in . Decided the best thing was to drain as much out as possible so with the assistance of Ron and the campsite owner we soon had 14 litres of fuel syphoned out , kangaroo'd popped and farted (the bike wasn't much better) the kilometre to the nearest fuel station and refilled with some correct fuel lOl , then when Peppers bike refused to start again we stayed at the fuel station with him whilst Nick popped back to the campsite to get some assistance. It was whilst sitting waiting I spotted what was potentially going to be a bigger problem for us when I noticed a band the complete circumference of the front tyre that was a different colour to the rest of the tyre , I then noticed that on that line in about 8 places around the tyre that the tyre had started to delaminate and there was a series of raised lumps on the tyre that felt like they were full of air when you pressed them :shock: Decided we'd risk it and see what happened on the 210 mile ride home but decided to keep the speed limited to a max of 60mph even on the motorways. The strange thing was you couldn't even feel the tyre had a problem and thankfully it held air and kept it's rubber on all the way home . It actually looked better when we got home than before we set off , the only thing I can think was it was very hot there yesterday at 25c and a lot cooler on the ride home from the ferry this morning . The location was one of the best motorcycle friendly locations we have ever seen and makes the the UK bike meeting places such as Squires look like slums in comparison. Ron is talking of possibly doing this event again so if he does I'd suggest you all try and get there if you can ;)
