This directory contains images from my 1994 summer vacation. 10/29/1994 - M. Gudjons (email@example.com)
The setting sun as seen from our camp.
Alex about to enter a castle. He's afraid of height, and in a few moments his face will be just as white as his helmet... :-))))
Alex about to get up. Not easy with that much beer in your head...
"Aaahhh, turn off the #$%^&! light, dammit!"...
Alex, myself, and Chris (left to right) resting in the shade at the Arbersee (Great Arber Lake). This is a cold mountain lake - just the ticket for cooling off on a 30+ deg. Celsius day down in the valley...
Left to right: Alex' Honda CB-1, Thorsten's Ducati 750 SS, and my and Chris' Kawasaki GPX 600 Rs parked at the Great Arber Lake.
A view from a castle, overlooking the valley.
The same castle as in "burg", only looking the other direction. The cleared stripe on the mountain at the left is a ski slope.
Left to right: Me, Alex, and Chris setting up the tents and getting ready for some cooling off in the pool. The place is Freiburg, in southeastern Germany near the Black Forest where we visited a friend.
It's steaming hot as we're standing on a hillside taking in the view across the valley. In a summer as hot as that of '94, you try to get as high up the mountains as you can; especially around lunchtime. And that leather gear certainly doesn't help...
What better way to end a day than at the campfire? Beer in your hand, the sound of grasshoppers and night birds in the air, and the moon and stars above...
Sparks fly as Alex and Chris look on.
Alex, yours truly, and Chris (left to right) at the campfire...
Seems like there's enough beer to keep us warm tonight.
Chris' 1988 Kawasaki GPX 600 R (aka ZX 600 C1) gleaming in the setting sun. Down in the valley, fog is beginning to move in from the mountains.
A view from Neunussberg castle, looking north. Can you say curves...? I knew you could. :-)
A Pro Superbike race at the Nuerburgring. Pro Superbike is the German international superbike series.
Three Superbikes accelerating past the grand stand. Third on the yellow Ducati 955 is Udo Mark, the eventual Pro Superbike champion 1994. First is a Kawasaki ZXR 750 R, second Michael Rudroff on a Honda RC 45.
A 125cc series cup race at the Nuerburgring.
A Ducati 900 SS inside the Nuerburgring museum.
Alex, myself, and Chris (left to right) behind the bikes at a campground near Saarbruecken. Imagine the faces of the camping public when we arrived. :-)))
Thorsten wrenching on his Ducati 750 SS. The pavillion in the background was handy for storing stuff inside.
Chris and myself looking over his GPX.
Alex taking a leak at Woffelsbach. This is the summit of our favorite Eifel road. The Eifel mountains are close to Aachen (location of this site) and are great terrain for scraping the pegs.
