"I did receive the packet you sent and it did offer a considerable amount of information which will help a great deal in planning an itinerary. I do appreciate all that you have done and realize you have been more than accommodating with my questions and lack of knowledge on planning an overseas trip."

Autumn Colors & INTERMOT 2006 tour comments (part 2 of 2):

".... Usually, I'm the navigator and read the maps as we go along; this time, we just followed Leon. What a joy to sit back on my heated seat and look at the views! The weather was delightful and we never had to don our rain gear. The fall colors weren't the spectacular reds of the eastern United States but were, nonetheless, beautiful hues of gold, orange, yellow and umber. As we rode through small villages and little towns, we were interested to see the agrarian life of most folks along the Rhine, Ahr and Moselle Rivers. The rolling foothills, incredibly green, offered corn, hay and of course, vineyards not to mention scatterings of forests near the farmland which made the views more appealing than plain farmland. Along the rivers were hills reaching 500 - 750 feet high with vineyards which also had footpaths for hikers to enjoy. Crossing the Rhine by ferry a few times reminded us that the old bridges that were bombed in World War II were not replaced but the ferry system is efficient and inexpensive..."

"...All in all the motorcycle touring was just fabulous and I will certainly recommend it to my colleagues here. I hope to come back some day for more good times.

"Thanks so much for the note and pictures. It is so good to hear from you and hope all is going well for you both... We re-live our trip with you often with our friends via my slide show, and some of our family members have seen it numerous times! ...Each day of our tour was an awesome experience and the scenery was breathtaking. For me, Psalm 145 says it best: "We will speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty and I will meditate on your wonderful works. We will speak of the power of your awesome works and I will proclaim your great deeds...All you have made will praise you O Lord." Thanks Leon and Elly, for a most memorable trip!"

Les M., Florida, USA

Rental comments (part 2 of 2):

"... First of all, I'll say that it was an excellent trip... I went to Cologne and Amsterdam, staying in hostels along the way. I really found that to be the best way to go, as I met alot of people my age and had much more opportunity to enjoy myself. I went next into Belgium... From there I began a battlefield tour of WW I battlefields at Flanders, Paschendaele, Frezenberg, and Vimy. Next I went to Dieppe, and found that to be a very nice town, and extremely friendly to Canadians. Following that, I toured the invasion beaches in Normandy, which was again a great experience... I carried on into Zurich, staying in a hostel and again having a great time with people I had met... I rode North to Munich, meeting up with some friends from Canada and staying a few nights there... Thanks again for setting me up for success on the first day, it helped quite a bit down the road. I would definitely recommend Bosenberg to anyone considering doing the same kind of trip as me. Thanks again!"

Kelly C., Manitoba, Canada
