VISITORS FROM TURKEY
A motorbike arrived at the gates the other day, Dave and Juliet from Turkey, he drove up from Kalkan in Turkey to Bulgaria in the car, they are staying at Dougs place near Veliko Tarnovo (VT.) and borrowed his girlfriends bike to ride around Bulgaria on. Doug is a legend amongst long distance riders and adventure riders, riding around the World twice plus many long distance rides, he now runs a bikers camp in Bulgaria near VT with his girlfriend Polly.
1996 Yamaha 660 Tenere.
I love the twin headlights on the Tenere, just like the Africa Twin.
It was absolutely great to touch, feel and smell a motorbike again after an absence from bikes for a year now while the endless house renovations slowly lumber on, of course we had to sit on Polly’s bike and pose for photos.
I’ve “Virtually” known Dave via his blog (DickyB’s Turkish Delight) on the internet for probably 5 years or so now, it was great to finally meet up after all that time, Juliet is a fantastic painter, we spent the whole afternoon chatting and Linda gave them a tour of the house (unfinished) then a tour of the barns (Unfinished) and a tour around the garden (Unfinished)
Before we knew it, the afternoon flew by and they headed back to VT.
The main gate is also unfinished 🙂
Heading back across country to Veliko Turnovo.
