22 Rocket owners and their mounts met in central France (between Lyon and Clermont-Ferrand, up in the mountains) this week-end, including yours truly (the only non-French) . Trackerjack, who is a member here, had masterminded the event. Franco-Indian summer :) , unusually warm and sunny... although it gradually changed to Fall on my way back to Switzerland. Virtually no traffic. Majestic scenery. Good company. Just a bit less than 500 miles overall... Best. Jamie;)

Sounds Wonderful

Jamie..... I envy you for living in such a beatiful area of the world where you're probably no more than several kilometers from winding, scenic routes. My time in Germany - especially the Black Forest was a real eye opener to beauty and I would have given almost anything to have a bike to ride in those days. Instead I drove a 1949 VW with a split rear window and no fuel gauge. You drove until it ran out of gas and then turned a little L-shaped handle under the dash and your reserve tank kicked in. The only thing the old VW's didn't have was a good heater.

Any pictures to post of the French event?

That sounds like a great ride. I'll bet 22 Rockets together sounds pretty cool...

Raymond, at our age, are we not all technically (and/or otherwise) challenged? :D

OK, I confess I could not access the first pic, TrackerJack's first post upstairs, on a "view" mode without first registering it, i.e. dispatching it to a personal file or folder. As far as his three other links are concerned, they are meant to be --and should thus be-- direct "click-on and view" . And, lo and behold, that's the quasi instantaneous way I got to them. Now, "click-on and view" can take some time (am talking half a minute max. , neither seconds nor... hours) with regards to color pics (NOT the french vernacular surrounding them) depending on your soft 'n hardware configuration. Am no expert either. So: best of luck;) . Jamie
