    Good Luck Bert  :028:

    Last week we saw 34c in Nancy and Lake Constanz just too hot. :230:

    Betty Swallocks will be on your mind, we found the roads in Germany and Switzerland great and the French better than the UK (sorry but true)

    CT was faultless and hope your battery holds out (sorry) enjoy the beer and keep it up.  :031:

    Saw only 1 CT and that was at the Tunnel on the return.  :012: Hi Paul B  for saying Hi.

    So far so good

    Just checked in across the Czech border from Germany. What a difference in road quality - from one extreme to the other

    So far the CT has performed faultlessy in the face of the Hayabusa and kept its end up in the dry and showed it the way in the wet

    I'm a reasonably confident rider in the wet - its all about the smoothness and the DCT just makes it smoother between 3rd and 4th

    Only niggle is thast she seems a bit 'lumpy' going in and out of 2nd gear - is this the norrm?
