Summer has finaly set in in Europe. It has been 77 degrees for about a week or 2. I've done some tune up on my Baja for the first time myself. Valves adjustments, ignition, cleaned the carb, new sparkplugs. Did a little test drive today, adjusted the idle screw. Oh man, I am really growing into a mechanic Smile
It runs almost perfect now. It is a little high when idling but not to much. The sound of my bobcat is great. Most people don't like loud pipes but when they see my Baja wich is the only one in my town, as far as I know, they all smile. I drove through a village and saw a gliding plane in a field. Probably n0t the place where he wanted to land but they where fine.
Oh well, you know what summer feels like. Darn! I'm having a gooood time!

I went to Holland several years ago. I spent the weekend in Utrecht. I can picture the villages and fields right now. I'd love to go back again some day and spend more time there. A day and a half just isn't enough!

Glad to hear your bug is running well, and you're enjoying it.

Have you taken any pictures of your car with the landscape? I'd love to see them if so!

I lived in Utrecht for 12 years. Great town. Now I live in Nijmegen.


And how Dutch do you want it? Smile My Baja on a dike.

I was there about 15 years ago for a music festival. It was so cool. It looks like things haven't changed much, judging from the picture. It's just the way I remember it!

Was it the Blues Route?

Haha, not the blues route I guess!
I missed this one. And I did like trash.
I was probably to bussy with my son who was 3 at that time. It is about the time I broke up with his mom. That must be why I missed this.

You still isten to this music. I do sometimes. But also listen to rock and a little pop nowadays. I guess I've grown up Smile

That GP is a pretty heavy story, I looked some stuff up on the web.
But this is not the place for that.

I'll only place a link for those interested:
