Well I'm coming and although I'm Scottish I don't drink . So make sure there's a plentiful supply of cola

Yes I know, it's a rare sight to see a Scotsman who doesn't drink alcohol

Cool

Thanks goodness Jens didn't use more than 3 exclamation marks per sentence
“And all those exclamation marks, you notice? Five? A sure sign of someone who wears his underpants on his head.”
„Hast Du die ganzen Ausrufezeichen bemerkt? Fünf? Ein sicheres Zeichen für jemanden, der seine Unterhose auf dem Kopf trägt.“
– Terry Pratchett, Mummenschanz

Jim, German is not like the crap you get at home! It's made according to a purity law. I too gave up after the swill I was offered in Scotland, until I got hold of German ! In fact you can't sell British pish in Germany - it's illegal.

PSI know several Scots who don't drink alchohol.......

See you there

Kenny

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
