D is for Duck.

Way back in 2000 or possibly 2001 I spotted a duck backpack at the Scottish Bike Show. At the time the world and his wife seemed to have a Shaun the Sheep backpack and me being me wanted something different.
To this day I have not seen another when we are out and about on the motorbike.
The duck has been to France at least 3 times, done Assen in the Netherlands a couple of times, been to Ireland and the Isle of Man 6 times.
He has met many famous racers and indeed is well known in public circles.

This week Jon and I did something quite DIFFERENT - we joined a motorbike club, the Moto Guzzi GB Club. Last night, Tuesday was the East Riding meet up in Wetwang, about an hour and a half away on the Moto Guzzi.

We had a great time, meeting new people and talking about the Moto Guzzi motorbikes, oh and Wetwang has a FABULOUS Fish and chip shop!
How did they spot us? Correct they were looking for a duck!

We are really enjoying the Moto Guzzi

Many more Destinations are on the way!
Watch this space!

This is D in my ABC Adventures on the Moto Guzzi.

  5. Just wondering - it's a bit small, so what do you carry in it? And "Duck" sure does make you stand out in a crowd! lol

  6. The most travelled duck in the world it would seem to me, but like Leslie, I do wonder exactly what you can carry in it. Can't think much about it though as those fish and chips look so delicious.

  7. Wow! What a great post. That duck must have seen a lot of the world now.
    Have a great day tomorrow.

  8. A well travelled and celebrity duck great pics. I had the same thought as Leslie about its size until I was diverted by the fish and chip shop and wondering if that was its menu outside.

  9. You are completely quackers!

  10. Wow, let the adventures continue. Can't wait to hear whats on the agenda next.
    Love your traveling duck.

  11. I'm sure the Moto Guzzi club will be lots of fun for you, but nothing can beat that duck! It takes a special kind of woman (secure and self-assured) to wear a duck backpack over leathers, and we all know you are a special kind of woman.
    I enjoyed this post, Denise.

  12. I agree wetwang's fish shop is great. We visit family nearby quite often and have indulged in a fish and chip supper on a few occasions

  13. Love the duck. My daughter had a monkey backpack but I've never seen a duck
