Good News And Bad News
We’ll have the good news first.
At last, we have a new arrival in our little paddock.
After much searching and viewing and rejecting and searching again, Beau has just chosen and brought home his bike for this great trip.
A nice little TTR250, as planned, that looks ready to take on everything that Europe, Asia and Africa can throw at it.
New and Old Owners engage in a spot of horse-trading, behind the horse.
And the Deal is Done.
So, as of now, we all have transport.
And the bad news:
This means, sadly, that Beau’s attempt to cross the Sahara Desert riding a drum kit is temporarily postponed.
But fear not! One day in the future you’ll read about it here, first………
Now, to allow this new acquisition to be fully prepared for the journey ahead, without me interfering and proving that too many cooks – etc
, I’m disappearing for a break from all this oily workshop stuff. On a little adventure motorcycling trip of my own.
To the glorious beaches of the Baltic coast of Schleswig Holstein:
Riding – not a drum kit – but this:
My faithful old Dominator, ready to go.
I have to go right now, as McCrankpin has just told me that Caroline is about to pinch the box off of it, and Beau has his eyes firmly on the panniers.
See you in a couple of weeks. Photos to follow.
