Hope not too. I usually trap my gloves under the strap.

I've made it to Arnhem , hopefully meeting up with Martin and company . We arranged to meet just off Junction 27 in a garage.
I think Martin may have done one of my previous navagating in Holland tricks. A sat nav without Europe maps.

Don't know Bob. Can't say I know much about them.
Felt very comfortable.
Stayed at the garage waiting for an hour or so, I'm guessing they've got lost. Hope they haven't had a problem.
Anyway I'm now around 80 miles from Tonenburg having coffee.
Riding here on a Sunday means very few HGV's Wonderful

Hi Steve,
I am intrigued by the VHA - is it yours?

The disk front brake looks particularly interesting....................

Hope you are enjoying your time abroad!
