Sommer DieselBike Rally

Postby Diesel Dave » Fri Mar 02, 2018 6:56 am

Chaps, is anyone else considering a trip to Yochen’s Rally this summer?

Dates are 20 - 22 July but I’m not sure of the exact location as my German is terrible but if it’s close to the shop then it will be near Bergen-Geyern.

Hi Dave,
I missed it last year due to work. I have the dates on my calendar and have looked at the route from Dieppe, about 550 miles. Could be a nice week away if the weather holds up. There is a chance to ride through the Vosges National Park. Google maps will take you to the village where he now lives and has his workshop, Bergener Straße 7 D-91790 Bergen-Geyern.
I popped in a few years ago whilst on a tour and he was good enough to sort out a gearbox problem I was having.

Come to the dark side Dave... Jochen has a 1B50 with your name on it..... I think I get a finders fee? I am ready to sell friends and family for the cause and beer coupons....
I don't think I have talked with you since we necked a beer on the ferry home from Hook the other year, so don't blame me for this one.....
Oh! I did say nice things about the French Rally. though..... Ian

Cool, looks like we have the beginnings of a Convoy......

Rubber Duck: Here's the plan: When we get to the pass, we're gonna put on our fish costumes, pass out the Vaseline® an' an extra ration o' rum for the men.
