Just checking in

Just thought I'd pop my head in and say hello and how is everyone? Back on a long weekend from duties in Germany, going back tomorrow night. Hope everyone and their Stilo's are ok, mine started first time in the early hours of friday morning, better than usual actually! Still debating wether to take it back with me...although not a good idea having seen the way some europenas drive!

Speak to you all end of this month!

Re: Just checking in

All good here Chris, took the Stilo myself to Aachen and Leverkusen, Germany via Belgium/Holland during Easter just gone and was a good experience, though still got killed by the 3.0 Audi's doing some mental speeds, was a brilliant experience though.

You know you want to take it back with you

Re: Just checking in

It's gonna stay here, it's due it's 48k service, and I'm not taking it any long distance til I've done it. Besides, after seeing the way belgian and french drivers (yes, I didn't give french and beligian capital F or B, because they don't deserve it ) act towards English drivers I'm not risking trashing my baby just yet. Maybe one day I'll take it off to Nuremberg . Not actually staying in JHQ much anyway, off to lourdes for the annual mlitary pilgrimage (load of sh*te) next week. Just enjoying thrashing the living tits off her now!

Re: Just checking in

Chris,

I've taken mine over a few times, including a stay at Cassels House in RheinD....

Was over in Feb last year for a weekend, ended up taking a drive down to Cockum, via autobahn, found the drivers to be polite and courteous (not like M25). It started snowing whilst down there, came back across the Harzt mountains past the Nurburgring, was tempted to take the stilo round, but seeing as they were skiing on the track due to the snow, decided not to risk it

Re: Just checking in

Was tempted to drive it over just so I could get round JHQ a bit easier! It's mahousive!

German drivers are generally a lot better than over here. Their driver training is much more intense and the penalites for even minor infractions are unreal. But belgians.....well....there's a reason for a GPMG if I ever saw one. Although I am a diplomatic hand grenade ready to go off!

So what were you doing over there Ursa?

Re: Just checking in

There was supposed to be a football match between where i worked and JHQ, but it was cancelled after I'd booked my ferry ticket, so still came over as it was a chance to stock up on the franzi from the px.

Re: Just checking in

Yeah, PX kicks a$$. Just a 30 minute walk from my accomodation! Which is why I was tempted to take the motor over there. So most nights are spent in the good old Marly.

Re: Just checking in

Bleh, drage me 430 miles across Europe away from my wife to sit on my ass for over 6 weeks. We've been there over 2 weeks and I've done 2 engagements. Needless to say I'm not overjoyed at the prospect of another 3 weeks of it. But, cheap fags and booze make it a little easier!
