I'm sure he will get a special mentioned at sproutfest :oooops:

kev on the subject of your tyre delaminating , a friend has had similar problems with a Bergman scooter thing cant recall what make of tyre it was but when it got hot the bumps would appear and he said it felt horrible to ride .
on the Ulysses I’ve been using Maxxis supermaxx Diamond tyres I think demon tweaks still got them on offer

Already mentally planning next year's trip. This time we travelled up Thursday eve after work and stopped at a Premier Inn overnight, travelling on to Channel Tunnel Friday morning, then via. Menin Gate to Eindhoven for Friday night. At the time we didn't realise we could have stayed at the campsite on Friday also, so could have saved money. Sunday we travelled back to Calais stopping overnight before getting the Channel Tunnel home on Monday morning and onward home. A round trip of 795 miles!!!!!

Next year we will catch the Harwich to Hook of Holland ferry on the Thursday night, ride the 100 miles to the campsite and stay Friday and Saturday night before returning to Hook of Holland on the Sunday for the overnight ferry back home. This will save 3 nights hotel fees and 400 miles riding!!!

I know the ferry will be dearer but when weighed up against hotel and fuel and food costs, it's a no brainer!! Can't wait :dance: :dance: :dance:

Are you tempted with the ride and partying??? It was really good fun, honest. The Dutch are a fabulous bunch. Xx

Great weekend with some fantastic people from both sides of the North Sea 8-)

A couple more awards that should have been presented :-

Pole dancer of the weekend - Ronnie :dance: (Truth is she didn't get on the pole but she put on a great display at the front of the stage :ill: )
Master of International Relations - Burning Chrome. Couldn't grasp the assortment of names so amused his table by referring to them as "Dutch Dave", "Danish Dave", "French Dave" and "Estonian Dave" :rotfl:
Estonian Dave took away the longest travelled award after a 2000 kms ride to get there :worthy:

Agree with all the other comments here. We'll be back mob handed next year I suspect 8-)

Steve

What a great weekend with like minded folk, good ferry crossings both ways although the entertainment was a lot to be desired. It was good to go away without any trouble from my bike although I rarely get any from my X1, not to be said from my other biking comrades! You’ve read the post so not going into them again. Got to say it was very well organised and big thanks goes out to Ron and Patty for sorting all the venue, band, food and drink. It all went like clockwork and everyone seemed to enjoy it all. Two days in Holland next time to take in more of the country, bring on next year I really can’t wait.

I think I might be able to claim the award for the furthest distance ridden on a Buell over the weekend of 795 miles for a 62 year old female. :D :yup:

Cheers Nutah. I have to say I didn't realise it was going to be quite so far (maybe just 600 max) plus I really wasn't very well when we set off. If the forecast was going to be rain all weekend, we would have cancelled and tried to recoup the hotel/Chunnel costs. However, being the stubborn female that I am, I am so glad I brazoned it out. I had such a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed the riding, even if we did see a few roundabouts/junctions more than once lOl There were a few road closures which caused havoc with satnav!!!

Definitely going again next year, with the different route as above. :4roz:

I reckon there’s quite few on here that would ride 795 miles for a 62 year old female. :D

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:
:yup: :yup:
