When in France

Having had to cancel two French trips this year and next year looks to be in doubt, when we do get a chance to cross the channel again things could be more motorcycle friendly.

Hah! That's pretty cool! I wonder what interests that serves.

Don't know Matt, however the kit drying option sounds good although you might have to stand about in your skivvies getting cold while they dry  ;D

The continental hotel chain that I used to use always provided all of that along with secure lock up garages. Excellent services along with biker owners who knew the local roads like the back of their eyelids and always had lots of sat nag files with the best local routes on them.

The French have always had a much more acceptable attitude to us venturers.

And Matt, it serves the interests of motorcyclists in France  :)

Yes that’s if they will let you into France without having your Vaccine injection of Mercury, formaldehyde, Triton X-100, WI38, MRC-5 and other toxins, carrying your Vaccine passport will be a must.

I've been taking mercury tablets for the past 5 years and Brian can attest to my sanity!

Is that an electric bicycle?
