We arrived in Amsterdam around mid-day.   After talking to many folks in/around the city, we thought it best for the motorcycles to find camping outside the main city.  The campgrounds were packed with young students, and so we found a small restaurant on the water with an apartment and secure parking.  Most Amsterdamer's have had their bicycles stolen 4-5 times.

   Cheap room and great food, all we need now is a great view!

We left our bikes and took the bus into town.  There were more American's here than in New York City's Times Square!
