    Well l'm home. Feels cold this side of the water. Check out these two that were parked near the bikes.

    And these two. The little dachsund has yapped all night apparently. Bull terrier looks like someone who's had a bad night thanks to the feckin arsehole in the flat above. That face just says "get me out of here"

    At least Dilli got wankered when he didn't go out on the rideouts at Llandilldoes and Bellendjam. Maybe we should ask Ron to provide them with a short ride out route to the nearest shopping centre or maybe they could go on the train to Newcastle for the day to buy some new shoes and handbags

    I am home. Going was good and now I need a power-nap!

    Nikki is out of hospital. Nothing broken. @BonnieCat , I hope you get home safe!
    And I also hope that you can look back on the tour in a couple of days with a smile on your face.
    Even though you were in pain, I am so glad you joined us for dinner last night!

    Best wishes and greetings,
    Daniel

    Have you lot been sworn to secret or something or is it just you were concentrating on making sure she was ok and ten applying liquid painkillers?. We need to know what's happened to our mate and how she is......

    Ok guys. Firstly photos later when I'm back home. Secondly yesterday after returning from our Rideout (the one without the shopping) I caught my foot and the bike on the kerbs, lost my balance and the bloody thing landed on my foot. VStroms are heavy even the 650 ones. My knights in shining armour Daniel, Dave and Steve, hauled the bike off me. Throbbing pain ensued as did throbbing hand and ribs. Managed to walk slowly to our last dinner at the Schnitzel house but during the night and this morning my foot had swollen up like an elephants ( or Big Foot. Thanks Daniel). So I decided I needed to try out the German Hospital service. After an ambulance trip and several x-rays I was released with a pair of crutches. I'm staying on here in Bad Bertrich for another 3 nights in the hope my swollen foot goes down and I can ride home. Really don't want to leave without the Wasp. She certainly stung me this time.
    Big thanks to Daniel for arranging ride outs and translation services and for just being Daniel. :heart:
    And for the rest of you guys. I loved every second in spite of the mishap.
    Till the next one.

    Glad it was only a minor one. More importantly, what was the damage on the bike? You never mentioned. Hope it was just bars or a peg. :eek:

    :laughing::laughing::laughing::laughing:

    Seriously tho', glad your OK, and Winglad lives up to his name. Daniel, we salute you and all who fly with you:cool:, and then maybe empty the AA guns at you as you fly home;):kissing_heart:

    @BonnieCat Wish you all the best. :kissing_heart:
    Hope you'll recover soon, and I'm glad you weren't on a trip all by yourself (as we tough ladies sometimes do) in this case, so glad you had the guys to help you.

    Just a few scratches on the left side crash bars some other scratches and a slightly bent clutch lever. I haven't been to see the bike since the mishap, but that's what i remember.
