Europe May 2003

I used to be a member of Motherwell MCC, some of us did a brilliant Euro Trip in 2003, with 8 of us riding down to Newcastle and getting the ferry over to IJmuiden in Holland. We battled through the rain to our first nights stop at Oudenburg, the fabulous Groenedijk bikers only hotel in Belgium, got to be worth a visit in any biker's book. Next stop was Maastricht, right at the southern tip of Holland, only a few miles away from the Belgian and German borders. On the spare Sunday we did a fast trip covering 4 countries in a day, Holland, Germany, Belgium and into Luxembourg,  travelling at 165mph+  in places shredding the back tyres, what a blast! The last night saw us staying in the beautiful city of Haarlem on the coast of Holland, relaxing in the square and chilling out. Some of the guys went into Amsterdam to see and experience some of it's pleasures.
