Off to the Chopper Bash in Holland and a very long weekend...

 In which we meet Luke
 and James who had run out of fuel
  then later found couple of big rocks for the Bitch to sit on when the slow puncture finally decided to flat and rip the valve off coming onto dual carriageway R4
 and Nick bless him pulled the tyre off and put in the old inner tube 
I had packed at the last minute
 big raised bridge at Zeizate
 little did I know that she would not start again
 so the others carried on , I got a recovery truck jump start about 9pm
and then she cutout @ 9.30pm 
 and pushed her a couple of miles into the Bash about 10 pm that night
a lovely event, great people
 good times
club house bar
a lot of top quality great bikes
 we diagnosed the alternator was fucked, so battery on charge all night
 Nick and Spike load up
a bit stressy but we made it home, 500 mile round trip

Had a lot of help and cannot thank everyone enough.
A big thanks to Angelo and the Chopper Bash Crew

All part of the story of how you made it there and back though!

Well it was my fault, I had notice, the front had a slow puncture 2 weeks before and caused by a sticker on the tube rubbing, same make was in the rear. She became hard to start too, I replaced the condenser, which seemed to fix it forgetting i had charged the battery…
