2016 - Day Three

Nurnburg to Brno

3. Tag begann mit einem Frühstück im Hotelrestaurant.

After the night we had it was an earlyish start. I don't have much of appetite in the morning but did manage a roll or two. Neill managed more. I do like a coffee though. The machine made it to my liking. Luckily.

Today's opening visits were planned by Neill.

Firstly the Nazi Congress Hall....

I did have my photo on the stage where Adolf addressed the masses at the Rallies, but unlike the guy in front of me, I didn't make any hand or arm gestures.....

The last Nazi stop was to the Burger King that is housed in the old power station. Check out the photos and see if you can see where the eagle was!

From here the route was to the autobahn across the border into the Czech Republic as far as Plzen. Then off there to avoid the motorway road works nearer Prague and along the D1 to Brno.

The idea was to use Silnice (S) 20 and the S23 for most of its length to Brno, or at least to my friend Lilka's house in Popuvky.

The first stop was Pisek for a petrol stop. I had planned a stop a little further on but instead we went to an adjacent McDonald's as they have free WiFi. We didn't have lunch, well a McFlurry and a drink.

The roads in ČR were very good and put those in Kent to shame. Smooth tarmac perfect for motorcycling.

There were many trucks and overtaking was a study in concentration and speed. Some of the Czech drivers have a more death or glory system of overtaking and it seems to have worked successfully for most.

The plan was to arrive at Telč - a UNESCO site - and meet Jíři and Tomas in the square and after coffee ride to Popuvky.

I had emailed Jíři from Písek to give a rough idea of our arrival time. Luckily it wasn't too far off and as we approached the old town, they were there to meet us.

Sadly for about the third or fourth time of visiting we were unable to get in as this year there was a folk festival in the square!

We parked and walked in. I needed a coffee and whilst we had a drink, Neill and his camera went for a walk. I took a few pictures on my phone. Despite owning a few cameras, I didn't bring one on this trip. Space was at a premium.

From Telč with Jíři leading on his Ducati 848 Streetfighter and Tomas bring up the rear on his Suzuki SV650 we had a spirited 80kms ride to Lilka's.

After a few hairpins over the last few days I had remarked how the Rocket hadn't touched down. Forget that now. Both sides have the hero blobs shaved down.

We arrived at almost 7.45pm after a detour at Třebic sent us into the country on roads I had never encountered before.

Lilka and Jarek had got beer ready for us plus a sit down dinner with sausages! I do like my Czech sausage!

We were both tired and with the plan to get up and go to qualifying the next morning we slunk off to bed.

The photos are all Telč.
