EuropeRide rides again

At long last we’ve managed to get ourselves in the saddle again. Not without some problems, mind you. After my rides 3 weeks ago, I found the GS’s NEW battery empty again. Should have tried it before mounting up, but no, we got all dressed up and ready at 95 F, pushed the button…. and ‘click’. Tried to jumpstart it down the steep hill from the house. Zilch. Couldn’t push it back up, so drove down with the car…. jump cable clamps too big!!! Got it running with help of a neighbor… and we had a good hour ride after all…

We’re still very much embedded in our reconstruction here in Italy, and it takes a lot of time and energy. Add the horrible Internet connections they have here and you’ll understand why many of my previous Dutch activities are down to a trickle currently.

But….. HOPING to get things going again, make more rides, more photos and post more news. SO stay tunes, and meanwhile enjoy the Paper.li EuropeRidesMotor Mag curated newspaper……
