Neulich in Osnabrück. 8)

Last Saturday York was finally visiting me (and my garage mates) in Osnabrück.

And he brought his Boehringer Pagoda with him, a ++ 700 km (++ 8 hrs)  trip  one way!

We had a pleasant, enjoying, exciting day full of discussing about pre-series Pagodas and the oddities thereon.
Higly interesting, you always learn something !
My garage mates were excited as well.

Thanks a lot for doing the long trip, York

Thanks for posting Achim.  Very interesting. Your post prompted me to do a search on the Boehringer Pagoda.  For those interested, see below.

Achin,

Are you coming to Merano in a Pagoda ?

We are leaving cardiff on Monday, via Caen & Geneva, and returning via Germany & Netherlands.

Good trip

I shall arrive in Osnabrück from Amsterdam on July 4th ... a few days in nearby Hilter with my brother also a visit in Georgsmarienhütte visit with Heinrich perhaps also Achim then on to the Mosel Tour with Peter H.

Looking forward to this trip, sadly this year without my Blue Tornado. Let's see what the future has in store, maybe next year I ship my Blue Tornado ahead and enjoy some of the twisty roads of Germany and Italy that I partly explored as a teanager on my bike :)
