yea lets just get a couple of family rooms! lol Cant believe your getting a GPS now, jesus talk about a hypocrit! :-) You should though, i wasn't sure but it's definitely money well spent! I used to use the map pocket on my tank bag, but it's a nightmare (even impossible) to read whilst ur riding. Just got it all fitted up and its ace. Dead easy to fit (Several options come with it, including the one i used which was to attach to clutch bolts). I can answer fone calls using bluetooth and my bluetooth headset, listen to music (Which cuts off for the fone calls and directions etc). I'm dead chuffed, just wanna go out and use it. Feel like a kid at christmas again. You should head the english voices trying to pronounce the Dutch names - hahaha, really doesn't work. Dijk for example (Pronounced dike)

Would have come with you Matt but have already committed to a trip to the Black Forrest around that time. If I can work out some finances then I may be able to make it but maybe for only half the trip as work commitments won't allow any more time off.

Whats with the security screw on the Zumo holder? Ok it locks it into the holder - but all you gotta do is untwist the big screw thing on the RAM arm and the whole thing is free to walk away with ?????

Let's get some more names down please on this, it should be a good laugh. Location will probably be a small ring around france, switzerland. This will keep the costs down and we can spend more time taking in the scenery at each location. Need to get hotels booked soon as well, so how many of us will there be?

Update: Almost got the hotels booked, around 50 euros a night on average. Some days travelling 300 miles. Total of 2,000 miles. Due to being unable to contact those wanting to go, I'm booking what I want and then I'll send out the details so that others can also book the same places.

Hi All
I find myself alone again and needing a holiday, leaving on or around 10th Sept., so it would seem churlish not to join this merry band for at least some of the trip, if it's practical - but it all seems to have gone very quiet on this thread. Are you all PM-ing each other, or is no-one interested any more?
I'm minded to head off to Croatia via some biker campsites, taking about 3 weeks over it, so it may or may not make sense to tag along some of the way - depends on where you're heading. Can you let me know your current plans to see if it makes sense to join in?

p.s. now, I feel very silly for having to ask this, especially having been on this an other forums for ages, but what's the *bump*-ing and *nudge*-ing all about?

Afternoon John B.U.M.P. is an internet acronym, literally meaning "Bring Up My Post" i.e. "Bumping" the thread/post back up to the top of the page in the forum. I think Nudge came from one of the Instant Messenger progs? Not sure as I don't use them. A similar thing I presume? As for the trip I don't know owt about it I'm afraid - someone more helpful will no doubt be along later

well - I never knew BUMP actually stood for something!!!... As for the trip - I think you're better of PMing Matt directly Manhill - he's the main man of the site (it's his baby )
