I know... I could take a trip to Scotland, lol.

There's always europe, heading off to Amsterdam next month .

you should try and get on the autobahn if you are into that sort of thing. I'm 17 and from the US so when I went out to Germany this past summer that was on my list of things to do. But since I didn't have any experience in high speed driving I got my uncle ( who use to race) to "train" me. And let me tell you. Driving an Audi S5 at 255 km/h is the biggest rush that I have ever had. And since the whole thing about caping the autobahn with a speed limit is being debated, right now is as good as time as any.

Just my 2c

And have fun in Amsterdam. It's a beautiful city, except all of the random hippies with their drugs all over the place.

I can . She's not road worthy at the moment though! I tinker with her more than I ride.


Sadly... on the way home around Luton my exhaust broke. So though it's still all there and accounted for, the lack of attachment is making an intermittent screeching noise... and will do until I come up with the cash to have it replaced! Think I can weld it to hold for a while though.

At 75 she's grasped the principle of email (ie, a letter on the computer), but beyond that... and she can't type, she says it's too different from the typewriter she used to use at work. Mac/PC means absolutely zero, but my grandpa was quite freaked out about my dock, since his computer doesn't have one!
