Time for vacation. See you in 4 weeks!!!

Hi-

I will miss not having internet access on a daily basis to be able to read this board and hear of your rides. I am flying tomorrow to Greece for 4 weeks.

I am hoping that I will get the opportunity to rent a bike over there and roam around but I am not so certain with those crazy drivers. My mother is telling me that 1 lane of roadway is shared by 2 cars and motorcycles zooming in.

I will certainly miss my LT and her fine curves, negotiating all of our turns succesfully together as partners should, bringing me home with a great smile on my face!

Most of all though I will miss all of YOU!!! My buddies, my fellow riders and people who understand how it is to be able to be free.

Please be careful out there and I hope to see you back on the road on August 20th.

God Bless!!!

Spiros

PS: Yeah, Yeah BABY!

Yasu Spiros, have a great trip and say hi to Mom for me. I wish I knew of your trip, as another of my best friends is headed to Greece to see his family also. He is a Police Officer mechanic/pilot in our Aviation Unit. He will be there for 4 weeks also. Call when you get back.

Hi-

Just came back from an amazing vacation. I rented a BMW F650CS and was roaming around. I took about 1200 pictures during my visit, so once I get a chance to upload the pictures in the computer, I will post a short summary with pics.

Spiros.

So Spiros,

I take it you negotiated all turns successfully?

Glad you had a good vacation and are back safe.

Spiros, glad you are back safe and sound and that no one HIT you in the REAR while in Greece.

My buddy just got back, he was there 4 weeks also, said there were many fires. did you run into any?

Give me a call so we can take a ride, maybe New Hope, you can try the Harley.
