Just 4 more weeks to go, both Hotels are full on Saturday night, but Friday and Sunday are still available, plus camping in Usingen or one of the B&Bs near by.
We also will have our friends The double dylans http://www.doubledylans.de/pictures.html playing slightly off beat, Bob Dylan inspired numbers in the Yard on Saturday night.
If you are also interested to join us, feel free but please let us know so that we have enough cups : )
best wishes

a few pics from the weekend, which was loads of fun, lots of people (around 80 ish), nice rides, reasonable weather and we had a band for the first time.
Only negative might be that it all went far too quickly.

Image
The Double Dylans did a brilliant job on Saturday night.

Image
Professional photographer Kate Miller came over from Frankfurt on her Multistrada, but had to have her picture taken beside the Hailwood

Image
A nice shot of the Hailwood by Christian.

Image
Some fantastic bikes to see at the Schotenring Classic Bike race event.

Image
Kumiko using the Hailwood for an original purpose : )

Another sort of bevel at Schotten.

The aftermath . . .

all the best
