    Europe 2010

    Im new to this Forum and trip reports so this might be a bit useless,

    This is from my trip last year with the lads , coulndt do one this year due to getting married , having a stag doo and a honeymoon

    Day 1 : Get up at 6 and head down to the ferry port , have a full english breakfast on the boat and then blast our way through boring North France at speed as we had to be in Chimay for lunch to say hello to a Friend who was competing in a classic road race on his old Ducati http://www.ihro.org.uk/2009/11/chimay2010/, after that we headed on down to our first nights accomodation in Luxembourg for a couple of beers , get invited into a localls party in a bar and have a great time ( word of warning , do not mix sake grappa and local beer , you will end up led in your hotel bath being sick and then pass out )

    Hello Neil and welcome to the site.

    Love the stories from across the pond, spent many years in Germany and I crossed over, or should I say crossed under on the chunnel a few times.

    Thanks for sharing your ride.

    On arrival a Davos it soon becomes clear that there is no paved road up to our hotel so a little off roading up some dirt tracks, we later discover that illegal to ride on the tracks and could have recived a 500 euro fine if we had been caught by the Police ( if there is ever any up there ), so we check in beat a hasty reteat back down to the bottom of the mountain and then get the free tram back upto the top for a meal and a well deserved beer in a strange barin the hotle that is bathed in red light
