If someone asked you, what was your greatest motorcycle experiences in 2008, what would you answer? And “things are great every time I ride my motorcycle” doesn’t count. If I was to pick a couple of things from top of mind, here’s what my greatest motorcycling experiences in 2008 would be.
But first I’d like to use the opportunity to wish all of you who reads this blog all the good stuff you can handle in 2009. All the comments and feedback I get from you guys mean a tremendous lot to me and I hope you’ll continue to join the debate in 2009.
Enough of the sentimental sobbing. Here’s what was indeed great experiences for me in 2008.
Super Rally 2008 in Denmark
My bike was just finished from the rebuild I had planned and collected parts over two years. The weather was bloody brilliant. Even if everything else had sucked, the ride there would easily have made up for it. But the rally was awesome as well, and the acknowledgment I got from Cole Foster on my bike topped it of to be a very memorable weekend. Read more about it here.
Solo trip to Hamburg
Riding to Hamburg to meet Scott and Zack from Choppertown was also one of the best trips I had in 2008. I met so many great new people and made good friends that it stands out as a really profound experience. Until now it’s still the best example I’ve experienced that you can go anywhere on a motorcycle and you’ll meet friendly people that will help you out. Read more about it here
What is you plans for 2009?
You got to have some plans right? or at least dreams of thing you want to do. I know of two things I’d like to do this year. One is taking a couple of weeks with my girlfriend riding up the coast of Norway on my Honda. Second I’m fiddling with the idea of going to the Bottrop rally with a couple of the lads on old bikes. Besides that, we all know that planning is for sissies and all you really need is just to go.
