XS650: Henneburg 2014   Leave a comment

Through contact I made at the Kassel SR500 IG Party this year I ended up at the Alteisen meet,  Henneburg – an old castle ruin overlooking the river Main, between Aschaffenburg and Würzburg. ca. 135 km – Landstrasse. The Main flows through Frankfurt. A perfect chase, up-river. Grey-Misty,  sometimes heavily so.

Groundsheet. Tent. Air mattress. Sleeping bag. Primus. Lighter. Coffee pot. Coffee. Water. Mug. Fresh undies n t-shirt … the basics.

Sidecars make it so easy.

Cool concept. Small, tight – group of motorcycle crazies.  Plenty of  shady corners. Quiet niches. Interesting people. Felt right at home. Well done team.
