Default TheOne® visits the Harley-Davidson festival at Rüdesheim

Rüdesheim (pronounced ruedes-hime) is a beautiful little UNESCO heritage town in the Rhine Valley.

From Rüdesheim am Rhein - Lebensart in Rheinkultur - 2009, June 11-14: Magic Bike Rüdesheim

2009, June 11-14: Magic Bike Rüdesheim

Open to Harley Davidson and other fine bikes.


In early summer Rüdesheim is host to thousands of international bikers for one of the largest Harley Davidson meetings in Europe. Rüdesheim under the spell of the gleaming motor-cycles. With live music, tours through the Rhine valley, a motor-cycle parade, fireworks and other attractions in Rüdesheim and Assmannshausen. The Rhine culture and the bikers are joined together for a unique event.
TheOne® calls me from Germany.

I'm going there tomorrow.
What?
I'm going to Rüdesheim with my family!
What?
I'm going riding on Jochen's bike.
What?
There's going to be a lot of loud bikes there.
When?
Tomorrow.
What?

Hey Sam... let The One start this one off - the beautiful half proves the master story teller - that should be the title!

lol, I'll take that as a compliment on her behalf.

She had a lot of fun, she said it was a beautiful town and it was great. But sorry, these things are not of great interest to her. Not much interest at all.

She had a good time with her family, a day picnic if you will and they mailed me the photos and I'm going to share them with you.

My Jenny couldn't be bothered with bikes, lol. The reason they all went is because an extended member of the family is a biker.

Default Pictures from Ruedesheim

It looks like a quaint little town, I guess the roars of the bikes would put an end to the peace of the place, lol.

Seems like it's one of those picture perfect German/European towns that one gets to read in the classics.

Nice photographs Sam. Jenny looks good on the bike. Maybe a Christmas gift??

Rüdesheim is famous!!! Internationally famous! It lies directly at the Rhine, in between castles, fortresses, wineries, forests and green landscape and has an exceptionally beautiful old town centre.

And it is the place where the "Asbach Uralt" factory is located, which is a German cognac or rather brandy that is also famous.

Hmmm... he doesn't mean that, does he? I made a special driver's licence for heavy machines. He can't mean that?!

Lol, I was waiting for the owner to come and take over. I was only the co-driver! Such heavy and expensive machines, you don't want others to experiment with it haha.

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

Thank you for bringing me closer to my dream.
