The Town Musicians of Bremen (323)

Tourist photograph #1. Check out the story of the four musicians.

Bike handling
Btw, rear-ended a fellow motorist in almost stationary traffic on the autobahn on the way to Bremen. Have realised that the weight/distribution of luggage makes the front end of the bike skittish at slow speeds*. This probably contributed to me clipping a lorry with the pannier while filtering with the result that I mashed a Dutch couple's brand new bicycle carrier. 😥 No damage to the bike. 🙂

All-in-all, it was no biggie. A very civilised exchange took place and I'll have to cough up when they know the cost.

*Bike handles perfectly well at all other times. Will have to see what can be done to eliminate the issue.


  1. Glad you came out unscathed. Building resilience to such things might prove to be useful! JJH x

  2. Whoops!
    Poor old africa twin, hope you guys aren't touched by it. Onwards! Xx

  3. As I recall, the Town Musicians of Bremen is basically a good socialist tale of the downtrodden achieving a comfortable life. Appropriately, they never actually become musicians!
    As to the bump, let's hope you've got that out of the way good and early!
