Ack!  Get me back to the Home Page


We arrived in Augsburg (west of Munich)

Seeing old friends  They were very happy to see us



The BMW Museum (Munich):  Interior design is similar to the Guggenheim museum in New York -- Spiral ramp.  The museum has a nice collection of cars, bikes, airplanes, and engines.  They also have a store with all kinds of BMW pariphenalia (not available in US).

In the beginning

The glory days

The 70's 



Catch that thief!!   A friend, Baba,came out one morning to find his wheels had been stolen.  Although upsetting, at least the thieves respected the machine and left it unscathed and protected the rear end with wooden blocks.

Hey, how do I ride this thing?




Aren't they beautiful?!   5 days in the work week, 5 ways to get there

The Dom -- the only building left standing after WWII   Night view

We only have a few pictures from Cologne -- one of our digital camera discs died, and we lost the photos.  So, if you want to see what Cologne looks like, you now have another excuse to make travel plans!


Our 1st European Rally:  Attendance is by formaly invitation only.  These 45 enthusiasts were so friendly and generous (the truck on the left was filled with bier kegs), Chris had a little trouble waking up in the morning.

A cozy gathering   After a few of the local brew


This is Christian, our host in Cologne.   Hopefully you'll see him again in IndiaNice bike!


We're off to Belgium . . .
