We already arrived yesterday afternoon, afer a short and save trip by car. :'(

It was the return after our sixth VIM, we startet 2003 in Holtgast as tourguides VCIF_varaGrey with my first Vara.
But I think our VIM history ends now, after a break from 2010 in Zams with my second Vara till this year by car  :(, but it is not the same to be a guest with car ora participant with the Varadero.

It was nice to meet some of the old friends/members.  VCIF_ThumbUp

Have a good and save trip home.  VCIF_salut

Best wishes

Jens & Astrid it was for sure my pleasure to meet the both of you again (also to discover we all grew old and grey, lol).

Arrived back home around 15hrs yesterday. 650km in 5.5hrs (Ursula, I think Jyrki is right, 1100 in 7hrs should be doable  ;D ).

Despite major roadworks on the German A1 Autobahn. The Varadero proofed its reputation again as an excellent long distance touring machine!

Will share my pics and vids later this week. Added the grouppic yesterday.

I am happy we had a chance to meet in Denmark (although I missed many riders from previous VIMs)! And it was wonderful to meet new people!
It's nice to have an opportunities to meet and share good times with each other! Of course that's possible when some people (organizers) put some extra time for make it happen! Thank you! Hvala! Tak!  VCIF_ok

To Jyrays: Thank you for your patience and also for the praise!  8)
To Two Plugs: Yeah, you came back to your home fast! ... And 1100 km in 7 hrs... Yeah, Jyrays could do it... For me? As you know - I am slow and I am not ashamed of telling that... as my purpose of riding is: enjoy and have fun but above all - be safe!  :)

Save back home again,

after having our national VDT near the Czech border I´ve been driven through The Netherlands (Nijmegen - Amsterdam - Den Helder - Ijsselmeer - Groningen) to Bremerhaven and Puttgarden to VIM 2019.
Way back home I did over Gedser Rostock Waren Potsdam Torgau Bamberg.

Finally this had been 4700 km.
