Thomas^s suggested we go for a rideout into Bavaria using the back roads through the beautiful countryside and forest areas, so after eating my pizza at the HD dealership MV Augusta open-day we set off...........eventually i need fuel which i indicated to Thomas who showed me to a petrol station, which we entered from the exit of the highway oppps riding along the high kerb we both managed to scrape the underside of our bikes frames as we dropped down into the parking lot. Ouch.....more about that later

after more riding we arrived at his weekend retreat

the following morning (sunday) we set off again about 10am for more scenic riding along the river Main and back to Frankfurt, at about midday i set off towards Venlo in Holland via Koln and Essen, where i was to met up with my friend Rob who was travelling from St Malo in north/western France. It was getting pretty hot at midday so i gave the 07fxstsse a bit of gas on the autobahn and arrived there just over 3hours later, hmmm a bit to much gas as the weep from the front cylinder base seal and from the air filter appeared again.
Monday morning Rob and I set off on our Km cruncher day, the weather forcast on Tuesday was not good so we decided to go for it and get ahead of it. Our First/farthest day was 960km in 11hours from start to finish from Venlo in Holland to Malmo in Sweden via Germany n Denmark  inclusive of gas stops and lunch at burger king   thats a days average 86km/h, we booked into a hotel and headed into town, eating in a backstreet local bar for which we were charged incorrectly i think, a very cheap 15€ for 2 large pizzas, fries and 2 local pear ciders.

Tuesday morning we awoke to better weather than we expected, but knew the bad waether was following us north, as we started on our days ride we noticed many unmarked Police cars waiting on the lead roads, we headed towards Stockholm riding up the center on Sweden via the E4 to Jonkoping where we eventually found the dealership (tom tom had an out of date address) and bought the t-shirt, our original plan was to find a hotel there but the salesman told us the storm was expected later that afternoon, so we jumped back on our mopeds and rode up the lake on route 50, we came across many speed cameras along this route, the style of which i had never seen before, they resembled traffic lights in a way, tall slim units mounted on poles but luckily they take the pictures of approaching motorists, but they are well sign posted and stating they are directly connected to the Polisi.

as we were riding i often saw a sign near a farm entrance which said RUM, i nearly stopped a few times to puchase some of the local rum, but was glad i didnt when i realised that rum meant "room"..........

by 5pm we had checked into a hotel, getting the last available room, when it started to rain.......our bikes were pretty dirty now and covered in pollen from the trees.

the next morning we didnt buy another t.shirt at the Stockholm prices, its a nice dealership having only recently opened a few months ago having joined together two shops from other sites in Stockholm. Upstairs they have quite a large inventory of used bikes (alot of road kings)
