Sam, you are kidding us, right ? Its a term for a Kawasaki bike (only the SBKs?), AFAIK.

Default Goodbye and thanks







I had a lovely time there, thanks for sharing my excitement. If you ever need a friend or help in europe...please do contact me.

Everytime I saw a car or a bike I thought of you guys. Sorry if I hurt any sentiments, sometimes I do it on purpose and sometimes, I'm really ignorant about cars.

I hope you enjoyed, bye and thanks.

Default It begins again!!

Thank you for opening this thread.

That's right gentlemen, it's time!! heh heh.

As promised by me to many, it's time to revive the thread and it's time to travel again.
In 2 weeks, I shall begin again and I hope to excite you with more adventures.

This year, as always I shall be your eyes and ears at IFA, Berlin, from the 30th to the 3rd of september.
At the JBL area this year we shall have at our disposal:
  • A fully pimped Ford Mustang (Notice I did NOT say Ikon)
  • A close to stock Saab 95
  • An Ebony-White Alfa Romeo Spyder
This of course will be a small part of the adventure (as you saw from last years photos, there's plenty more action everywhere). Being your official eyes, I shall try and get pictures of all the interesting cars. I won't even recognise one without your help, this is my promise.

After this I will spend some time off, alone in Budapest, Hungary. This is a beautiful city and I will surely post pictures of the blue Danube and the cars around it.

Post this I will spend a few days in France (Paris, Lyon and Marseilles), following the International Rugby league.

This post is just to build you up, in anticipation of the events to come very soon. I truly hope you will enjoy them. I promise you a fun filled ride for a few weeks before it will be time to lock up this thread again.

Ahh.. An interesting place to visit for a (semi)bachelor .. I worked and lived in Budapest for 3 months, mostly on the Pest part of Budapest. Interesting part for me..there was a Ferrari (and Maserati) showroom bang opposite the office building I was working in. I think the Ferrari dealer liked chocolates.. the dealership was called Ferrero.
