And so we say goodbye to the motorcycle festival and to the beautiful town of Rüdesheim, world-famous in Germany.

I hope you enjoyed the motorcycles. Shame I could not join her there.

Cheers,
Sam

Oh she loves chappals.
And now her new-found love for Kolhapuri chappals. lol.

Though she eventually had to change to shoes because it was cold and windy. But yeah, I didn't think of that - her kolhapuris totally give her away as "coming from India" lol.

Superb bikes sam saab. you and your wife contribute a lot in giving this site a spicy edge. The conversation that you both have on the forum is interesting. I am waiting for jenny to reply to your comment on this

" It has been my lifelong ambition to marry a German truck driver.

Thank you for bringing me closer to my dream."


You put up your travel experiences very well , it feels as if we are visiting. you both should launch a show . something like "musafir hu yaaron".

Beautiful bikes. The tires on some of them are simply unbelieveable. Seems like TATA 1312 truck tyres. Thanks Sam & TheOne.

ROFLMAO - okay, obviously I used the wrong English term as I meant heavy bikes (but you know that Mr. Kapasi lol).

In any case, yes I can also take you around in a truck haha. My licence permits me to drive trucks up to 7.5 tons! You get the truck I drive you around, deal?

I don't know how this picture landed here, I think my BIL sent it to Sam! I changed my shoes for the ride right after lol. So unfair!

How cool! It is great there, isn't it? Very special atmosphere though a bit touristy. Have you been to Drosselgasse? The famous street in the centre of town? And have you visited some of the fortresses around? The region is fantastic.

In any case, Rüdesheim is only 50 minutes from my hometown so quite convenient for a day trip. We wanted to go there with Sam in April but we were all too lazy that weekend. Real shame!

Nice pics Jenny and Sam, One thing that caught my eye on a couple of bikes was that the Chain sprocket and the rear disc is integrated into one! Never seen that before. Keep amazing us as always!

Right now she is busy driving you up the wall, Sam. BTW, where would you park the truck even if you buy it. LOL

Jenny, please come back soon. This time around, we need you.

Yes I have - had been to a place where they took us down to a wine cellar and then we tasted the wines before we picked ours

This is often seen on custom choppers.
