Raymond Duke2,369I only use one circle for people I add on G+. This is it. Unfortunately, due to G+'s shortcomings, only 500 people are allowed. Maybe one day they will open it up to more, like Twitter did recently with shared lists. Why do I use just one circle?Because I treat everyone the same. If you are on the internet, it doesn't matter what you do. We are all equal on the web. Our conversations and interactions will determine the context of our relationship, not how I categorize you. 2013-06-20 16:03:47500315

Max Huijgen41,136Europe calling: the old giant wakes up and calls on its peeps! A new circle of Europeans as I promised long ago to connect the people who responded and share them. See for the first shared circle this post https://plus.google.com/112352920206354603958/posts/PDUi13o9dB1The original post was shared 225 times. You can find it here:https://plus.google.com/112352920206354603958/posts/CdhmHGbYjgiPart 2 is still open and can be found here:https://plus.google.com/112352920206354603958/posts/NDAhG4fP2a7If you didn´t do so already, post there and as long as I have spots free, I will circle you as I want to see my streams come alive during European hours.There was a shared feeling that it would be great to get some attention from G+ for Europe with official hangouts from the community managers during European times, feature roll-outs from Google no longer restricted to the US, having some central point to share European circles and last but not least the desire to have hangouts without having to burn the midnight oil. To help solve this and get Europeans together on the same page I created +Europeans on G+  It already has multiple managers out of the community and that initiative recently span off +European Photo  but feel to offer a bit of your time for this community project. Circle the page if you didn´t already do so. We need more peeps from all over Europe to participate and enjoy G+I hope these posts can do the rounds through Europe and gets us firmly on the G+ map. So even if you´re not European yourself, but sympathize with the initiatives to form a community here, help spread the word and share it.And don´t forget: we all love the other continents and most of us have circles which encompass the whole world. So it´s not against others, but pro us :)2013-03-15 15:05:14291532076

Max Huijgen24,852Europe calling: the old giant wakes up and calls on its peeps! Part IIAccording to the latest figures 426.9 million Europeans now use the InternetThere is a is feeling that it would be great to get some attention from G+ for Europe with official hangouts from the community managers during European times, feature roll-outs from Google no longer restricted to the US, and last but not least the desire to have hangouts and interaction without having to burn the midnight oil. To help solve this and get Europeans together on the same page I created +Europeans on G+  It already has four managers out of the community but feel to offer a bit of your time if you want to contribute. Circle the page if you didn´t already do so. I also organized a "I will circle you" project. If people commented that they came from Europe I would circle them instead of the other way. The intention was to share this circle back to the community and the first circle of 500 went out. You can find them here https://plus.google.com/112352920206354603958/posts/PDUi13o9dB1Now as promised it´s time for round 2: 300 people and a few European pages. Some very well known, some relatively unknown, but all certified active posters from Europe who will spice up your streams during European hours.Check them out and please share the circle as the intention is to get much more Europeans united!if you were left out while you signed up: my excuses as it´s a tedious job to manage all these circles.

I will remove you from this and any future shared circle I create, but I will keep you in my G+ circles.Furthermore, with each version I try to include new active engagers that are looking to meet other GPlussers to interact with, but I understand the old users may not have as much interest to meet new users and won’t circle them back, so I will prefer including users that really want to interact with new users.For TIPS TO GET PEOPLE TO CIRCLE YOU you may want to check:https://plus.google.com/u/0/111635150542674847021/posts/Q6c3ikBhdT3Thank you for your help making Google Plus adventure and exhilarating one…#SharedCirecles #CircleShare #ActiveUsers #Engagers #Commenters #TopCircles PS: I don’t necessarily share or identify with the views of these GPlussers, in fact with some of them we have completely antagonistic points of view and dissimilar interests…2012-04-21 17:40:39270336

How Do I Feel?  Made Up

I took the plunge and bought the ST1300A yesterday.  With a reduced price I couldn't resist.  Wow did it feel good on that ride back from Doncaster.  Even better it was a beautiful day.  What a great way to celebrate reaching 11,000 members!

Did You Previously Own This Bike?  It would be good to know its story.  If anyone knows any of these motorcyclists please ask them about its travels.

It apparently started its life in Southend-on-Sea being sold in February 2004 by +Belle Vue Motors Ltd to a Mr M Mlynek of Canvey Island. From around 2007 it appears to have been owned by Mark Peck in Southend then about 2012 Stephen Fenlon in Liverpool and finally Ken Urwin Motorcycles, Doncaster.

In June 2006 it had covered 29,576 miles, August 2007 - 38,048 miles, November 2008 - 61,692 miles, October 2009 - 69,822, November2010 - ... more »

Pirineos - Pyrenees

Thanks to +John Nelson and Javi and all the other route planners for an absolutely fantastic and breathtaking route today. I don't think there was a moment in the Pyrenees today where I wasn't awe struck at the beauty of the river valleys, the soaring mountains, the cliff faces, eagles rising up on hot air currents, amazing hill top villages and the roads were fantastic.

When In France

Hello all you French #womoco 'ers and experienced travellers through France.

First of all can I ask you what places you think I should visit next week when I'm riding through France?  Here is my route - http://goo.gl/dhT8ys.

Secondly I need some information.  If by accident I happen to exceed the French speed limits, while on my trip next week, what should I look out for?  Are there any areas of France that are not plastered with Speed Traps and what is the cost if you are, by chance, caught speeding?

Thanks.

Quinny Gives The Thumbs Up

I took my recently purchased ST1300A to a local mechanic who I have a lot of confidence in and came away very happy that the Pan European is in good shape.

Quinny, who owns CQ Performance, checked out my list of queries on the bike and explained what he thought may need attention in the future.  His workshop is full of bikes and really well organised and tidy.

Just to be safe I got the back brake pads changed as they were borderline for making the 1,500 mile trip down to Castalla.   The Givi backbox brake lights weren't working and while not essential they do get the attention of the cars behind so he fixed them.  Removed a few unnecessary wires from old accessories gave the thumbs up and job done.

Quinny has worked on a few TT bikes and circuit bikes in over 25 years of experience and I'll get some of his stories for #womoco  later this year.  He was camera shy so you just get his arm in the photo.

If you have a good mechanic who you have confidence in let us know - it's worth recommending the good ones.

Spain here we come!

I took my bike in to cqperformance.com this morning for it's big health check to get ready for next weeks Spain trip - http://goo.gl/dhT8ys.  Fingers crossed everything will be OK.  I'll publish some photos from the workshop later.

While I was there This JZR Trike was in for a bit of work.  Noddy would have flown in this!

This is our planned route for the trip starting at the end of this month.  I say ours because my daughter +Rosie Duffy has decided to join in the adventure and be the on board camera operator.  We'll probably take 4 or 5 days to get there and we aim to avoid using motorways as much as possible unless I get desperate to make up time.  The Fiestas start in Castalla on 31st August until 7th September (http://goo.gl/W5x0JO) and we don't want to miss all of the celebrations.

Meet The New Bike

How Do I Feel?  Made Up

I took the plunge and bought the ST1300A yesterday.  With a reduced price I couldn't resist.  Wow did it feel good on that ride back from Doncaster.  Even better it was a beautiful day.  What a great way to celebrate reaching 11,000 members!

Did You Previously Own This Bike?  It would be good to know its story.  If anyone knows any of these motorcyclists please ask them about its travels.

It apparently started its life in Southend-on-Sea being sold in February 2004 by +Belle Vue Motors Ltd to a Mr M Mlynek of Canvey Island. From around 2007 it appears to have been owned by Mark Peck in Southend then about 2012 Stephen Fenlon in Liverpool and finally Ken Urwin Motorcycles, Doncaster.

In June 2006 it had covered 29,576 miles, August 2007 - 38,048 miles, November 2008 - 61,692 miles, October 2009 - 69,822, November 2010 - 73,038, October 2011 - 79,182, November 2012 - 79,269 and finally August 2014 - 79,275.

It passed its MOT with no issues but I'm going to get it round to a local bike mechanic to give it a good looking at to make sure it's fit for a trip down to Spain at the end of this month - more on that later.

3- This is Dr. Mads Gilbert, a Norwegian doctor, who has been treating hundreds of victims wounded in Israel’s ongoing assault, including young children. Dr. Gilbert says hospitals are operating without electricity, water and proper medical supplies, but adds: “As a medical doctor, my appeal is don’t send bandages, don’t send syringes, don’t send medical teams. The most important medical thing you can do now is to force Israel to stop the bombing and lift the siege of Gaza.”___

What Should I Buy? Are There Any Better Offers Out There?

I need a touring bike that is up to at least a couple of journeys across Europe per year and hopefully something bigger!  My previous bike was a Honda ST1100 and it was the perfect tourer taking me around Europe on a fair few trips.  The new bikes first job will be to get me down to Castalla, Alicante at the end of August.

Here's what I've seen so far that catches my attention:

Honda CBF1000 2008 - 20,400 miles. Tax & MOT to March 2015. Full service history. 3 owners from new.  Honda top-box and panniers. Higher screen, Gel comfort seats, ABS, heated grips, Scott-oiler, Xenon headlight, 12V charger socket, higher spec Honda alarm system, beep warning indicators, £3,350.

There are quite a few older ST1100's available as well.

Let me know your opinions - I value them.___

Moderators Choice - July 2014

OK so it's my turn to choose a post from last months over 660 posts and I've chosen this one by +Gerhard Schadl.  I didn't choose it just because of this one post but the fact that Gerhard posted a series of posts anticipating World Ducati Week.

They were ORIGINAL posts and not just re-shares and you could feel the build up and enthusiasm.

The photo is the header for +World Motorcyclist for August 2014.

For the rest of you that have posted thanks very much and keep up the great work.  I love reading your stories of motorcycling from around the world.

As another UNRWA school serving as a shelter for Palestinians in Gaza was hit by shells on Wednesday, killing children, senior UN officials strongly condemned the attacks and warned against the targeting of civilians.

“Nothing is more shameful than attacking sleeping children,” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said. "UN shelters should be safe zones, not combat zones."

Gaza - Why Now?

"Since Hamas did not initiate this confrontation, the question remains: Why did Israel pick this fight with them now? The answer requires a bit of context: For more than two decades, Palestinians and Israelis have been engaged in a so-called peace process, which aims to establish a Palestinian state on the occupied territories, the small areas from which Israel is legally required to withdraw. But that peace process failed time and again because Israel was never serious about allowing a viable Palestinian state to exist, and insisted on swallowing up more and more Palestinian land through relentless settlement expansion, in direct violation of international law. More recently, Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu candidly (though only in Hebrew) ruled out the possibility of allowing a sovereign Palestinian state to exist.

___Gaza - Why Now?

"Since Hamas did not initiate this confrontation, the question remains: Why did Israel pick this fight with them now? The answer requires a bit of context: For more than two decades, Palestinians and Israelis have been engaged in a so-called peace process, which aims to establish a Palestinian state on the occupied territories, the small areas from which Israel is legally required to withdraw. But that peace process failed time and again because Israel was never serious about allowing a viable Palestinian state to exist, and insisted on swallowing up more and more Palestinian land through relentless settlement expansion, in direct violation of international law. More recently, Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu candidly (though only in Hebrew) ruled out the possibility of allowing a sovereign Palestinian state to exist.

But because global perceptions are important, Israel is always looking for a way to deflect responsibility for the failure of the peace process onto the Palestinians. One of the talking points used to that end is the claim that there is “no partner for peace” on the Palestinian side because the leadership was divided. So when Hamas and the Palestinian Authority agreed to end their division in recent months, Netanyahu’s government freaked out and demanded Western governments boycott the new united Palestinian leadership. When, to Netanyahu’s bitter disappointment, the U.S. insisted on dealing with the new Palestinian government anyway, Israel seems to have opted for a direct confrontation with Hamas to break up the unity government. One can see the cynical exploitation of the teens’ kidnapping to this end simply by looking at the Jerusalem Post headline, which reads: “Netanyahu to Kerry: PA’s Hamas-backed unity government to blame for missing teens.”  Evidence for this sort of nonsense, of course, is nowhere to be seen."
