Well there it is been and gone, over for another year. :cry:

For those of you who didn't turn up and didn't have a valid excuse, (i.e dead or very near to it!) yah boo sucks you'll never know what you missed. :twisted:

To Rob, Nicole, Chris, Ansco, Henk, Niels and all the others involved in organising the weekend, thank you very much. :clap: Excellent organisation, good run (tour), good food , and good company. Plus the beers wern't bad either! :cheers:

Thanks for all your efforts and for helping us Brits out with the improptu taxis. (Rob whoever the guy was with the Peugeot say thanks for me!!) :wink:

For the rest of you, you now have a year to save your pennies and get your act together. 2007 will be near Lubeck just north east of Hamburg on the Baltic (Ostsee), a mere 500 miles from Calais. As soon as we get a confirmed date from Martin the organiser you will be informed.

Once again thanks to the Cloggies for an excellent weekend. :clap:

Doug, It was our pleasure....

p.s the Peugeot guy's name is Jülf (yeah it sounds as difficult as it looks)
His wife (Monique) and he did the photographing and filming along the tour.

They are both top notch!
Cheers,
Chris

I would also like to say a big thank you for the very well organised weekend, had a blast. It would have taken a lot of effort and organising for such an event, you guys are a credit to its success, well done :D . It was nice to finally meet you all, can now place your faces to the names on this forum.

I cannot wait for more pics and the video taken on the run out (there are two pics already on Rob's website).

What a great venue to have a GTS gathering....a pub with its own beer being pumped over from the brewery...heaven.... :lol: and to top it off talking for hours to the master brewer 8) about making beer and getting me fooking rat arsed (now try this beer, now try this one, now try this beer...... )

It was also great to finally meet a FEW of you guys (UK) that turned up, we had a laugh, and praises go to Flash for basically being my AA mechanic on the way down and the other stuff :wink: and dude can you fooking SNORE!!!!

Also a big thanks to Doug for his great navigation and to the "young un" for clearing my plates (btw you were right Doug, a lot quicker on the M1).

Most important of all we had fun and all came back safe and sound.

Maybe we should organise an event just like the Arcen one :idea: ....wait a mo....it would be full of Notherner's....ah well Preston it is for 2007 :roll:

For you guys that have never been abroad on your bike I for one would thoroughly recommend it. Ferries are cool....your the first one on and the first off. Seeing different places, people, food, beer is all there for the taking. Just save your brass, book the time off work and book the ferry and away you go. I will deffo be going to the 2007 Euro meet.

Just one word of warning though...when you stop for a cig make sure you lock the top box after :oops: (one shirt, one baccy pouch, one baccy tin and pride strewn accross somewhere on Holland's motorway :oops: )

You live and learn as they say :shock:

Yep, I'd like to say a big thank you to all concerned, the organisation and the execution was spot on. Overall had a real nice weekend and as Dale said, it was nice to put the faces to the names.

Thanks again to Chris, Rob, Christain, the master brewer (provider of zero headache snoring juice) 'cos I can remember your names and all the others I can't.

Special thanks to Ansco for his hospitality and friendship, and also to Doroth? for tolerating the riding, whilst I went on a crash course in slow speed GTS pillion adjustment...

I also saw a few components and mods that are big on the GTS scene. Some interesting conversions, Vampire, & Thunderace exhausts, mirror extensions, lights etc...oil filler conversions, but that's a sore point :wink:

A few folk commented on my LED rear lights, thought they were cool, but the tax disc holder was considered ugly and what that's?

Thanks to Pol? the real Dr GTS for letting me work on Dale's bike...all those tatty bits that broke, that had to be drilled and tapped out...that's why it took so long to tune it.

I also got to ride a few other GTSs, and let a few guys ride mine, and the differences were surprising and interesting. I think I will get a Corbin seat and make a few final mods this winter all being well.

PS Tip of the week, make sure you lube the air adjustment screws on those throttle bodies, and change those exhaust analyser screws on the downpipes for stainless if you want a smooth running bike next year at Pol's workshop...'cos he doesn't drill them out for you.
I've just started riding the GTS again, and it'll be changing

At least i spent 70 quid on fuel and not engine oil!
I understand BP are laying a pipeline direct to your house as we speak to save you the time going to shop and buying some more.
No wonder the price of crude has gone through the roof!!! :wink: :wink:
