Ride safely, and step into the memories of that day. I knew a man who loved flying, and said he learned to fly many years ago, in the armed services. He didn't add any details. I learned more of the story when I buried him ... he was one of few glider pilots who survived that day ... his love of flying never faded, but he didn't talk about it.

Savor the journey,
Grandpa

That's Awesome Pumper! Here in the states I have visited a lot of our Civil War sites and it is always very humbling. Being Prior service Army and a history buff, I would go crazy to see some of the places over there. My Wife was a German major in college and got to spend a lot of time in Europe and has seen some of the battle sites and loved it. I imagine it will be an amazing trip.

Back from normandy. WAAAAAAU. It was a trip back in time. There will be pic.
10 miles into the trip, i got ALIEN NOICE. Bike 8000 miles,2006 vn 900 classic. 300 miles later it start to lack power( horn didnt work) and then it was as if you turn it on and of.
I took the speed down from 80 mph to 70 mph and it ran great.
The little kawa made down and back 2050 miles and i am so proud of it.
( the alien noice has not got better durring the trip)
I will get back with some numbers volts/ohm, but it is strange that its make 14,5v at the battery at iddle.

I am Happy that you were able to go to Normandy. My father was there in WW2 (E company 505 82nd Airborne) he landed just outside of Ste Mere Eglise.
