    Thumbs up Hello again...

    I've been off the forum for what would appear to be 8 years... with the sad news about Mr Tack, I thought I'd stick my head back in the door and see what is going on.

    My departure last time coincided with me selling my XJR1300. A lot has changed in those years. I now live in Cologne in Germany. I know it is a UK bike forum so I hope I'm still allowed in.

    I bought a 2015 XJR1300 2 years ago and have been blasting around Sauerland and the Eifel. There are some great roads around here but at the weekend it can be a bit like biker soup.

    It's good to see a lot of the old names from VD days are still here. Hello to those that remember me.

    I watched the 2014 World Cup Final sat in a bar on the square in Cologne. It was pretty mental.

    Cologne also has the worst Hard Rock cafe I've been in... and I've been in a few.

    I suspect that may be the Corkonian on Altermarkt. I was there last night watching St Pauli v HSV.

    I know what you mean about the Hard Rock Café. It isn't my favourite either but it is still better than no Hard Rock Café though...

    I spend quite a bit of time in your neck of the woods these days as my business has partnered a joint venture with a firm in Lindlar, just east of Köln, and I find myself over there a few times a year.

    You've got a motorbike? That's unusual on this forum.
