We went on with four bikes
in direction to the Köterberg. Already on the way to the hill we met a
part of the bikers who we wanted to see there.
On the Köterberg we saw the impressing view...
a cheeky Kuckuck :-)
... and a lot of V-Strom-Bikers
... in front of the view.
Of course it was an impressing picture, when we made a break on the Köterberg.
The weather was kind to us, so we went on with 15 motorbikes of the same type in the direction to Allrode.
RBR was our leader who lives in the area, so he knows all the routes in
order to bring us along the streets that nobody else would take,
After we had relaxed the break...
we could continue the way to Allrode
with all the other bikers. As some of us had already driven a mess of
kilometres, we decided ...
to "rob" a small gas station.
In order to make a bigger group of bikers we let two other Strom-biker roll with us, now completely, on the way to Allrode.
Another break on the parking lot Torfhaus
In the earl evening we arrived in Allrode.
It's unbelievable but we bikers really had to search for a parking lot. It was an exciting picture! ...
... around 150 motorbikes of the same type on one place.
Even at the check-in you could realize what big kind of organization was necessary to let the bikers relaxe these days.
Registration, getting the small pieces of paper with the names and filling in which tour you like.
It's just great to combine a face and a conversation to a biker's nickname, how you only knew them before.
On Saturday we rolled with a group of
11 bikers the witch's tour through the Harz. Christian (as Harzstromer)
led it truely good. We ran fast on the off-roads and cultivated through
We stopped for a break at a castle.

on the houses in the valley
Then we rolled to the Auerberg, where we stopped for lunch.
Lunch on the Auerberg
Here we met some other groups of V-Strom-bikers who had already eaten, and some who came when we were ready :-)
End of break... continue
After several beautiful routes we stopped at
a small Café, Christian's secret advice, where we enjoyed a great
service with a music box which the owner brought us right away.
Break for coffee at Christian's secret advice
Powered we started the way to Rosstrappe,
... a place opposite of the dancing place for witches...
... and Christian told us a legend. It is
about a princess of the sex of a giant, who jumped dangerously with her
horse from the dancing place for witches over the ravine to the other
side to get away from her pursuer.
The print at the place where the horse came down is called the "Roßtrappe".
The short claming was it worth.
The view is just super !
Klaus(V_current) and Kuckuck (Birgit)
In the end of the break ( it was probably hard to coordinate ;-) ) there was a marriage society,
... led by a police motorbike with blue light and alarm sound.
Then we drove back to the hotel.
As Jörgen (JE) had a wonder-box (a
machine to adjust the V-Strom) one or two bikers came to him and
requested him to optimize their bikes.
Actually it was no problem...
but when everybody suddenly put off the seat and stood there in a double-queue with the bike, we had to laugh..
What do you say? Selling the seats !!! :-)
JE helped everyone of them...
and at night he probably had some
problems to find his room because all of the thankful bikers offered
him a drink... "Old Swede.." :-)
In the evening we all met on the parking lot to take a photo off all the bikers with their machines.
All the bikers
On Sunday morning we - just a small groupe:
Kuckuck, Juttihe, Jörgen, Jörg and I - broke up to go home.
Unfortunately we were forced to wear waterproof clothes. Fortunately we
could wrap it after half of an hour to roll home in a wonderful
sunlight. in order to spend the evening in a nice society of bikers afterwards.
Short time before we went to bed
Only some metres in front of Osnabrück the rain began to fall, but it didn't matter as we were nearly home.
When we look back we can only say: It was a great weekend with really nice people and lots of fun.
Game of colours, but silver is missing :-(
The registration to the meeting next year, which will be organized by Franken's bikers, is already sent out :-)
