    A European way of camping and riding a Trophy

    My wife and I spent 10 days in the German Eifel-region. Roughly between Luxemburg, Belgium and the German rivers of Rhine and Mosel we camped in our Hymer campervan and did some cycling on pushbikes. The mountains up to 700 meters high with beautiful views across the autumn-colored forests, many hairpins and countless corners make our days. Some of you may recognize the name of Spang Dahlem; a big USAF-airbase where 5000 Americans live and work. During the weekends the roads are filled with hundreds of bikers, most on GS but also some 1215-Tigers. What a nice job being retired is. :152:

    Ebenezer  :821: :158: I thought I'd put the beer offering and the wave in first before I tell you that your photos really "pissed me off". I'm as jealous as all right now. Perfect way to holiday. Can't wait for the pay mistress [wife] to get home from work. She's keeping me in the lifestyle I've become accustomed to, bike riding and four wheel driving in the mountains. She wants another caravan to tow behind our Toyota tray four wheel drive, but she knows we will be leaving the Trophy at home. I can show her your set up now. Thanks, I'll let you know how I get on.  :062:

    Here are two other pictures that show the river Mosel near Piesport, well known because of its excellent wine. Riding down into the valley wasn't nice the 2d time due to the rain.


    You can see who owns which part of the vineyard


    I couldn't resist in spite of the heavy shower getting of the bike to make at least one picture

    Ebenezer, I see in one of the photos that the grill of the speaker of your motorcycle is discolored.
    With the black bitumen can pad to paint the shoes, you can paint it and it looks great and will last a long time.

    Looked like a perfectly fine way to vacation.  Park the camper van in a nice location and go riding from there.  No loading up every day and unloading every night.  May have to rearrange the retirement plans.

    Henk, are you still running your campervan on used chip fat?
