On Friday, 18 September 1992, the following participants met to go to England. Axel and Evi Bodeit (Moto Guzzi 850 T3), Jurgen Krechel (BMW K 100), Hans and Ute Mondorf (BMW K 100 RS), Dieter Mundorf (Honda CB 900 F Bol d`Or), Klaus Dieter Heimann (Ducati 750 SS Desmo) and Karl Heinz Poppe (BMW R 100 GS).
We took our usual route via the freeway to the Hoverport in Calais.
The outward journey went without significant events, neither man nor machine gave out, so that we reached the pub The Four Alls in Welford on Avon very early in the afternoon.
The usual procedure of pitching tents, freshening up with cold water, then the first pint in the pub.
Axel, Evi, Ute and I drove on Saturday, like almost every year, first to the Wellesbourne Airfield Market and then to the Burton Dasset Hills.
The others, Dieter Mundorf, Karl Heinz Poppe and Klaus Dieter Heimann took a trip to Birmingham to visit an acquaintance of Klaus Dieter, Mr. Steven Keyte. During their training, both had taken part in an exchange program between the Hardy company in England and Walterscheid in Germany.
We spent both evenings in the pub with good food and friendly company.
Later that evening, after the chairman's speech, we received (it is hard to believe) the tankard for the longest journey from the continent.
We started the return journey in two groups. On Sunday Axel, Evi, Ute and I drove home. The rest of the group drove to Brighton and from there along the coast towards Dover and stayed in a B&B on Sunday evening. (However, nobody recalls in which coastal town any more). They then took the Hover Speed towards France on Monday morning.
Once again a successful weekend with great memories.
