It's a fact that public holidays in Germany do not fall on the same days as those of England (or even Scotland which is different too). I work in England - Mrs Nikos works in Germany ergo I had a lonely day in Wiesbaden for the May Day Bank holiday.
Bank holiday in England but business as usual on Rheinstrasse. Spock needed to be run in more before the first oil change - I called Greg and we decided to go for a pootle on the condition that I navigated this time.I enjoy the water so elected a Rhine trip with the destination of Kaub. The diversion proved to be a bonus.
|Mrs N on Spock - the springtime in the Taunus on a Saturday pose - note the hi viz cycle clips.|
|The B42 at Rudesheim was subject to an Bomben Umleitung|
|Wiesbaden - Ready for the "off".|
|First stop - Greg's workshop to view the restoration of his "Lady"|
|Greg is possibly admiring Spock|
|Triumph Trident and Spock|
|The Bomben Umleitung took us on the Wispertal, a wonderully scenic route whch descends towards the Rhine at Lorch. On a weekend this road is somewhat frenzied with bikers but on a Monday very pleasant to ride - --> this is the sort of thing but speeded up somewhat - some stock footage|
|It's Monday and Bennos Truck Stop - as a Biker Treff it is mercifully very quiet.|
|Old Man River - she just keeps padlin' along.|
|The round tables with cushioned seating are reserved exclusively for regulars at Bennos Truck Stop. I recall Arlo Guthrie - "You can get anything you want at Bennos Truck Stop except decent coffee"|
|The mounted Police arrived and made good use of the cushions.|
|Back ar Schierstein Hafen we enjoy traditional eggs with Grüne Soße and decent cappucinno.|
