We’ve got a Cottage booked first 2 full weeks of June in Lochcarron, Scotlandshire, I’m holding off cancelling and paying the balance just in case there’s a miracle cure, we’ve got until the end of April to pay it. According to Great Uncle Trump it’ll be all over in the US by Easter so it’ll be long gone here by then :?

We booked to go to Le Mans 24hr 18-19 April but that was postponed till 2-3 September so we rescheduled the ferry and rebooked the hotel, then the twats moved it to end of August, it cost £71 to move the ferry as I’d only booked super saver tickets, I could have waited a little later and possibly got it for free but thought everyone would do that who were travelling and I’d maybe not got a crossing, I can tell you I’m not rebooking again so if we can travel then just going to go for a nice weekend of drunken debouchery :mrgreen:

Ok lads, I have been nurturing a look for my cafetastic racer and yesterday i bought this, well Amanda treated me actually as i have a birthday looming.
https://www.bmw-motorrad-bohling.com/bm ... ition.html

I bought in the hope that I/ we will all be meeting up in Wales shortly.

It compliments my "ahead of the curve" fashionista theme. I have also bought a lovely BMW open face racer helmet and a trendy pair of goggles. I also bought some inexpensive protection gear for the bike, lower engine guard and oil cooler guard ..China. I got two rides in over the weekend, never got down to see my mum as wiser counsel prevailed in view of the recent urges from those Clowns in london who are making it all up as they go along.

Screw it. let`s ride!

:wink:

:shock: For the time being anyway Steve, till us lads ride in a whippin and a whoppin`

:wink:

I also bought this, https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Engine-Chass ... 2749.l2649

and this, https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Radiator-Gri ... 2749.l2649

Inexpensive compared to Wunderlich prices. Other stuff i have had from China is not to be "sniffed" at either!

Good stuff Chris, whatever floats your boat Mate :thumbright:

You can all forget going anywhere for months in my opinion, at least 4-6 months, just keep your eye on Europe to see where we are going and how long its gonna last :wink:

On the plus side, bikes have never been so clean 8)

Stay Safe

Sincerely hope and pray you are not correct there John, however not only clean bikes but lots of inexpensive repo`s coming up if that is the case?

Win Win for those with disposable income, tears for those servicing debt. Not good at all, a 4 month lockdown does not bear thinking about. I hope it is that Gothic environ in Ebro that is clouding your Yorkie exuberance and optimism John :wink:

I hope I'm wrong too Chris but just look at Italy, Spain and the rest of Europe. I fear it is a long haul ! Be prepared Mate :wink:
