Thanx Bud....

In the last photo today {the one with Cliff leaning against the pole/flag} I wondered if he had a little bit too much German bier.
    I then noticed the flag has a Kawasaki emblem on it and he was posing with that.
       Yea,,, righttttt!
   
In other photo's I see that Bernd and Wolfram's bier glasses are empty.    :c002:
I immediately sent Cliff word to get busy and buy them more!
  {ie; Part of being an "OtP" Travelers duties is to keep our Eu friends happy! Particularly the "OtP" Eu lead!}

fyi; At the GCE Rally's; they do daily group/led rides.
                                       Some photo's your seeing are during those rides.
                                  The Hotel supplies breakfast and dinner.
                                       Some photo's your seeing are of those meals.
                                  Everyone gathers in the Hotel dining area or Courtyards for evening bier.
                                       Some photo's your seeing are of those gatherings.
                                         {Cliff is the guy in the funny hat...}

Ride safe, Ted

Cliff sent word last night that Walter came out of surgery fine.
No other updates since that time.

Bernd sent a picture with Cliff in Bastogne...

The Rally ended today and everyone headed for home.
Spot shows that Cliff is back in Frankfurt with Bernd/Anette.
No word from anyone..

I think he flies home tomorrow or the day after.

Ride safe, Ted

Everybody brace yourselves!
Cliff is headed back to the US of A.....
                  :41:

I have to admit though. He shocked me, and did 1 classy thing..
ie; When he returned the bike to Kawasaki, he took them gifts.
                 Well done Cliff!!   :bravo_2:

Ride safe, Ted

PS: Kawasaki was ashamed of that old hat he was wearing,, and gave him another. {That sez "KAWASAKI"..}  :great:

I figured out my viewing issue.  It was a google photo area and one of my google accounts has access to somethings blocked.  Apparently google photos is one of them.  I switched to my unblocked account and was able to see them fine.  Sorry for the scare.

I'm back!  :) What a amazing trip it was. It will take sometime for me to soak in everything I saw. I did make some new European friends that I will keep in touch with.

Do your part to support OTP. Someday it might be you taking this trip of a lifetime!  :motonoises:

Your welcome Cliff!  Some of us don't do facebook.  I just wanted folks that don't to be able to see some of the places you had been.  You can have those pics printed and bound in a book if desired.  I don't think it costs too much.  Glad you made it back home safely! :great:

A google album with all the pics would be nice! :)  Easier than posting individual pics.
