Today I left home at 5. Arrived at Bristol to be told flight cancelled as wind in wrong direction at Schiphol. Was sent in taxi to Cardiff. Flight was delayed. Currently on train into Amsterdam so will get to flat after about 14.5hours. And I binned easy jet cos of the delays.....
Surprised that the wind could be in the wrong direction at Schipol. Last time I flew into Schipol there were thirteen runways.
As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everybody is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

Yeah but only 1 they can use in (what I assume must have been strong) north westerlies. Same storm winds  that battered several panels of my fence over the weekend I guess , unusual for a storm to hit us badly from anything vaguely northerly

Nice! But...

...somehow, Ogri should only ever be a weekly or monthly happening. If we are not careful we will end up electing him, or more likely Kickstart, as the next PM and then he'll be on the t.v. every minute of every day  ::)

Another milestone, and this is my Amsterdam parking spot not an arboreal incident :o



Munich Thursday afternoon, I'll put up a Spotwalla link. After BAUMA on Friday and Saturday there's a chance of the B500 on the way back on Sunday. We shall see

My bio sadly omits to mention this, but if you delve back a few pages you will find the installation and pictures well page 3 . I do write more drivel than I thought...

But you do ride further than most of us. And I like the drivel.
Everything in moderation. Except mileage.

9 hours give or take, nice sunny afternoon but cool when it went dark. Very busy, ridiculous amount of 100kph zones on Dutch motorways. Hit the derestricted autobahn and immediately the fuel light came on range 36 miles and at the same time I saw a sign saying next fuel 52km. So I started slipstreaming lorries at 60 mph and just made it with 750cc of fuel left. Many roadworks in Germany and very busy. Was filtering unconcernedly until i had a chat with a nice lady in a smart outfit with a bmw with lots of blue and orange lights on it. Only opportunity to cut and run other than in the odd burst was the last 50miles to the Munich ring, the average just clicked into 3 figures as I hit the speed limits. There are some very fast boys and girls out there,  I thought I was pretty good watching my mirrors but I still got bounced twice. More twaddle on Sunday

Oh and what i can only describe as a hot no start incident at the first fuel stop. Nice german bloke gave me a push and it bump started.  Spent the next 175 miles fretting about the battery and whether i would get there. However it started straightaway at the next fuel stop and smooth as silk tickover none of the normal giggety giggety stuff. It does like a bit of 100RON.   :D
