Allright guys, we should be able to make it! I just got message from BMW that they replaced my gearbox etc so the bike should be fixed by tomorrowevening, so we should be there by friday afternoon.

I am also finishing the presentation about DSLR Photography for all of you who wants to know a bit more about making (better) pictures with a DSLR camera.

@ Jens; don't be nervous! ;-)

btw, I AGREE WITH ESTEBAN ABOUT THE STICKERS WITH THE NICKS! I honestly don't really care what bike somebody drives, you can do 'anything' with 'any' bike, but placing a head on a name is way better... ;-) So we will do this... although my real name is also Seb, so not really a problem here... ;-)

CU friday!!!!!

Good you can come!

Well, my real name is Margot and not "Renato aka Montebianco", in case you see me around. Don't be misled, I actually prefer Margot to Renato, so please call me so if we meet.

Anyone heard about SNOW? Supposedly here in Switzerland it will snow above 500mts...

Missed Toby's presentation! I was really interested. What about South America (at least)? And the grips (about to buy a couple)... Any rehersals?

See you tonight! Crossfingers for "no snow, please".

Enjoyed it a lot, even if we arrived too late and missed some nice presentations, but other cool ones. And it was really nice to meet some hubbers in person.

See you all in June, we'll go with two new members of the family: a little girl... and a Chinese Peaklife GPS I got yesterday. I hope there will be presentations on both travelling with children and navigation! (already started to look for volunteers for the 2nd in June!)

Thanks again JENS for your time and effort. A+.

Esteban
