Blue FF Ride Out

On Saturday 7 of us headed out towards Cuijk where our friend Pascal owns a denim store/restaurant.
We headed out towards the highway where we where greeted by heavy rains which continued until we got to Cuijk, this resulted in a ride which wasn't as smooth as it should have been.
It took us 5,30h to cover a distance of 150Km.
First breakdown happend after a few miles, Angelo's lost his exhaust of his Truimph which was recovered from the highway lanes without to much damage.
A bit of handy work was executed and we where on our merry way.
Then 50Km before Cuijk his engine decided it had to much and stalled.
Took the bike half apart but still no spark at the plugs.
Called Pascal to send someone over with a van and by the time the van got there the bike started again.In the meantime we had lost Rob & Michel.
It was a good thing that van was there to gide us to Cuijk because I didn't know how to get there.
Followed the van and 20km before Cuijk the Truimph was dead again.
We finally got to Cuijk where Rob and Michel had also just arrived .
Pascal did a great job at making us feel welcome and had made a nice Eat Dust display in his shop.
He also treated us to a very fine meal, we can not that thank you enough Pascal for the good care and hospitality you have shown us.
In the meantime Renne and his lovely misses arrived, it was good seeing you guy's.
The way back went a bit smoother but 40Km before Antwerp the Truimph decided to stall again.After the engine cooled down it was ready to take the road.
Although we got drenched , it was a good day on the road with friends.
