German meeting

Hi guys,

My plan was to leave thursday night ferry Portsmouth 23.00, or ride to tunnel and nip across depending on costs.

I was going to visit some WW1 sites on way down but think that i now wont have enough time so will proberly just take back roads down to the meet at a steady pace. I intend to return on the Monday 25th in time to go to work Tuesday.

I will be riding an XT660, I am based down in Bournemouth, so Mario if you wo=anted we could hook up before we cross the channel.

Cheers,

Colin.

German meeting

Been looking at routes, I fancy a change from Portsmouth. I have been looking at New Haven Dieppe. 4 hour crossing return fare 40.00.

Hour & halfs run from Bournemouth, so would be looking at getting a ferry around 22.00. stay at ferry terminal till first light then head off.

Dieppe to Ober, is approx 425 miles, so could do in one day or split the run and arrive Sat Pm.
