    A demented GPS – column

    Just got back from a visit to Martin and his Lief Ria who looks like Ducati gives the Nuda designed especially for her. And of course there is such a machine in the box that also sleeps Martin's engine. Martin bought his bike new 50 years ago. That was when motorcyclists were considerably younger than they are now on average. It was also the time when a lot of black earners, whether or not through the preconditions of supplementary benefits and subcontractors, bought a new, the latest, motorcycle every year. More

    Classic riders are different - column

    We classic riders are different from modern motorcyclists. As friendly as they can be, they usually follow the arrow of their GPS on their almost perfect motorcycles. During lunch stops they eat healthy sandwiches and drink Spa or decaffeinated coffee. They no longer smoke either. We heard from someone who planned a week-long trip up to the location and time of lunch stops. More

    Rostock by night

    You can come to an end with a classic. Rostock, for example, is only two days away from the center of our country. I was sitting on a terrace in Rostock. An old, stripped-down Goldwing came crashing across the square. The thing made a U-turn. Stopped. The rider kicked out the jiffy and came More

    The technology, the autumn, the life

    The Ardennes are now that piece of hilly country you rush through on your way to the south. But you are doing yourself short on that. We still go there regularly, not through, but with years of experience and sometimes still just haphazardly.

    In the meantime we have made friends there. And friends lost. We feel connected to the Ardennes.

    Ardennes suffering

    The main means of existence in Wallonia? Those are euros. And those euros are richly provided via Flanders and Brussels. Edu lives on it. We first met him about ten years ago. He lives in an inexplicably inhabited home outside of a small village. No gas, water or electricity. There is a large, antique, wood-burning stove in the garden. More

    About the past winter ...

    It is a quarter to eleven as in '22.45 hour'. I'm tired, on my own all the way and twenty minutes from home. And I have to pee a lot.
