Now that's a BBQ
From 2001 till 2006 we went with a group of frends on a few bikerweekends in Luxembourg, France and Germany. The first year i went was in 2001. Bad luck a few weeks before i broke my hand in a motorcycle accident at work. So i spent the weekend in wim's motor sidecar. Which was pretty fun. The weekends always started at fridays the day we drove down to the campsite. We always stayed till monday morning. A few days before we drive down we take a car down there to put up a big tent were we have all our stuff, the beer bqq and music equipment. It's hard to bring all that stuff on our bikes!
Sightseeing on our bikes and BBQ and drinkin beer were our main activities each weekend.(what else to do hahaha)!!! In 2001 en 2002 we went to a campsite in a little town in Luxembourg called Echternach.
We spent here 3 years the weekend. We had our own spot on the campground with no intervention from other campvisitors. In 2003 i had to skip a year because of a trainingcourse i had to to fro work, couldn;t get of work to bad.
In 2004 we went to Northern France not on a campsite but a motorbike lodge. It was pretty good but not as good as the campsite, you can have much more fun on a campsite. In 2004 was the first time Jasmyn went with us! On her own suzuki 600 Bandit. In 2005 we went back to Echternach with the largest group so far. About 25 people. We had lots of fun. To bad good frends of ours had an accident that weekend and had to spent 2 days in the hospital. But they left with only a bone fracture!!! The accident was pretty heavy the flipt over with the sidecar in a corner!! In 2006 we went on our last motorcycle weekend so far!! We went to a german town called Utscheid, a campground just for motorcycles. We had a good weekend with good weather, which can be said for the other weekends we had lots of rain and ofcourse some sunshine!!! But that's the northern european climate!! The years from 2006 till now we had too much other things going on and couldn't go on our biketrip, hope this year will be the next one again!!!!
