Now that the simple format of the lockdown lookback posts are established (I write a few words then select a bunch of pictures from the time period in question), it’s time to move on with Part 5 of the series.
In Part 4 I had mentioned and included pictures from a terrific trip in 2009, down through Germany and onto Switzerland, this post (Part 5) covers: the second of my 2009 European trips (which was the first of my solo European biking trips) as well as a change of bike in 2010 from the GSX-R 1000 to the new Honda Fireblade CBR 1000cc RR8 as well as another very decent european trip with friends in 2010.
2010 didn’t start too well when I damaged the Suzuki GSX-R 1000, so much so that it needed to be retired from service. I replaced it with the excellent Fireblade, which was the bike I did the 2010 road trip on. There are four seperate picture galleries in this post and there are some pictures of the damaged Suzuki in Gallery 3. The fourth and final gallery has pictures from the 2010 road trip (Austria/Italy) with friends – the pictures in this fourth and final gallery are not all in the correct chronological order as the trip unfolded.
I’ve selected some pictures from 2009 and 2010, these pictures are in four gallerys so you will need to scroll down for the second set, third and fourth sets.
Clicking on any of the pictures should open a scrolable gallery, should work fine on a ‘phone but pictures are best viewed on tablet, laptop or desktop.
GALLERY 1 – SOLO EUROPEAN TRIP
GALLERY 2 – END OF THE ROAD FOR THE GSX-R 1000
