these are my first words since 11 days ago…I have reached the finish line despite my sick gear box. But, as you know (Skye and Hampe, does this sound familiar?) :
“A Honda never gives up until it is burning up”
Despite a sick gear box that needed very careful shifting, the XBR made it back to to finish. So far, this bike never stopped in 356.000 km and still keeps running!
I am quite tired and I need some sleep now because I have to get up early for the scoring (which will be very short 😉 ). I will write more during Friday. But first of all let me thank John for his excellent job during the last 11 days. He did this during his trip to Norway, trying to find access to internet, was woken up in the middle of the night by my status updates…..thank you very very much John, the comments posted show that your reports were very much appreciated by the many readers….maybe your writing makes you a potential successor of Bob Higdon in the future 😉 ?
As Thomas commented correctly, you shouldn’t be worried about the restaurant – it will be definetely above fish ‘n chips level 😀
