European storm

Hope that none of our UK or other European members suffered from the recent storm.  I've read terrible damage reports.

Yes, does not look good. Last I heard they were past the UK and heading over Europe.

Ended up tracking a bit further south than expected…. the south cost and along there seemed to get the worst of it….

thanks for your thoughts and concern for the European brothers.

The south uk got hit pretty hard. So I read on the news. I am out at sea at the moment thankfully further north. it tracked across to Denmark then into the Baltics. hope the guys over there were OK

I am suffering from the effects of the storm !

Supposed to be spending 2 weeks in Dubai,
and flew from Birmingham to Amsterdam yesterday
Where we were late arriving due to all the delays ,
so missed our connecting flight and were stranded
in a hotel overnight ( at the expense of the airline ).

Should be getting our onward flight this afternoon,
to arrive in Dubai just 24 hours late !

Unable to take the Trophy with us  :110:

Have a safe onward journey coconut.  Not sure if there are ant triumph dealers out there. But would be a good place for triumph. explorer or Trophy.

Cheers seadog

I'm thinking the most popular colour out there for a Trophy would be GOLD !  :085:

We went out Sunday in 30mph winds. The bike took a buffeting but it was not unmanageable.

yesterday I decided to go to work in the car and am glad I did given the extreme weather. Whilst I could have driven to work, probelms with lorries blowing over etc was a threat I felt best tackled in the car.

The weather is lovely today and I had a great ride in.
