just a few lines from the house of John Young who has me as a guest.
We’re back safe from the rally and I still can’t believe it – I have won my first rally on British soil! 🙂
Well, second place (Giel Kerkhof) and third place (John Young) were very close, in a wink of an eye. But thanks to a very, very, very bold move in the last minutes of the rally, I scored only a handful of points more. I gambled also with the petrol – after the finish, the XBR stopped without fuel after 1 mile!! John had to play the rescue team getting petrol for me.
We were washed today, masses of water came down from the sky! I crossed London in the afternoon twice – the traffic was nightmare! But I had chosen the right bike for that task! I felt like a fish in the water and swam through congested London, where no other bike could follow me.
Probably I was overcompensated today for a lot of bad luck in the last years. The XBR definitely has passed the test and is ready for the Alpentour 😉
This asks for a good report….
