For what it is worth I think it will be 2022 or 2023 before anything like we knew will happen sadly.

Really missed no camping last year and no shows /rallies

Back to the future? But I think I agree with what you meant. The recent news about the Oxford / AZ not being as effective vs the south African variant doesn't bode well.

Re the vaccine; if you're in a deep hole and can't find a ladder then a strong rope is better than nothing. Right?
V7 Classic Black and gold is the best colour but green & black is nice too!

Oh, don't be too pessimistic Dave, things can change very quickly.  I'm sure it will be possible to do a tour by mid summer.  Last year I managed two covid dodging European tours just by being ready to go when an opportunity came.  This year I've booked for Guzzi 100 year anniversary, but if big gatherings are still being cancelled I shall still take my Falcone and spend a few days plonking around Lake Como.
And I promised my wife that the minute restrictions are eased we'll be off somewhere - anywhere!
Some good memories from Col d'Iseran, Timmelsjoch Pass and Pordoi Pass.
Cheers,
Derek

"Just dreaming about when things get back to normal and reminding myself of how it will be again."

That's not pessimistic Derek.I just thought it would be nice to remind our selves of what we've done and look forward to doing it again.




We should have been touring the Peloponnese last year but we shall do it this or next year.Can't wait!!

Nice photo's all, keep 'em coming.
