Who was in Sainte-Mère-Église May 6

Who?
I took a picture of my bike in front of the church, then looked for a place to park it. Noticed a KTM 990 Adventure and a 1200 GS in te corner, the owners walked towards the museum. As I parked my bike next to the two other I noticed a HU sticker on one of the helmets (see pictures).

My trip was short, only one week and 3000km, but it was great .
Probably the best weather ever! The trip was from the east of the Netherlands, where my parents live, to the west of the Netherlands, where I live. Took a short detour, first to the Belgian Ardennes, then to the French Ardennes, to Verdun then Bar-le-Duc, Paris, Mont Saint Michel, and then along the coast via cap de la Hague, and the d-day landings beaches, Calais, Belgium back to the Netherlands.

How was your trip?

Hi.
Not bad thanks.
Only two weeks though!
Started off in Bruges, then on to a bike rally near Alkmaar Netherlands, across to Hoogezand, down through Germany to Strasbourg, Dijon across to the Il de re, Then onto Bayeux and finally a few days near St Lo to meet up with the KTM. Took a lovely day out doing the beaches ect which is where you saw us.
Any more trips planned?
Dave.

Oef long time ago, but to answer the question: Yes, just came back from the Nordkapp. Awesome 9000km ride! The nordkapp itself is not that special, however the journey to it is. I took the road through Sweden.
Did you do any trips/have trips planned?
