    So, my first tour with my new motorcycle, the Triumph Speed Twin 900 stealth edition.

    Day 1, from home Netherlands, Eindhoven through Belgium Ardennes to Luxembourg Bollendorf.
    A 280 kilometres drive avoiding the highways. With break time a duration of 8 hours.
    Started in the morning with dry weather. Ending with rain in the afternoon

    Day 2 a motorcycle route in volcanic Eifel, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany
    A trip of 200 kilometres. We had beautifull weather. Cloudy and sometimes sunny. 15-20 degrees celcius.
    After riding the trip, we went to the next place to sleep in Stadtkyll.

    Love the travelog and the photos! How do you get on with rain on your face shield? Do you use a water repellent on it? I have a Triumph Trophy SE with a large windscreen. Since I am a fair weather rider, I haven't had to deal with rain. Should I get caught, I could use a little advice. Thanks!
