Re: Self Guide or Tour Group

Three of us did a five day group tour of the Italian Dolomites in 2015. We met up with another 10 riders at the eurotunnel and we had two guides, so there were 15 bikes in total. We rode through and saw scenery that we would probably never have seen on our own. One thing that we hadn’t anticipated w...

Route advice required - San Sebastián to Calais

It looks like we might end up riding home from Northern Spain due to the Brittany Ferries boat issue :cry: . If so, we need a route from San Sebastián up through France to Calais. We’ve got 3.5 days to do it, so 3 overnight stops before Calais. We want to stay off the motorways and avoid coming up t...

Re: Ducati Multistrada meets the Strata Florida

Nice one 8-) .
As a matter of interest is the 'Gap' road still open to bikes? Would be good to see a big bike go up that well-known route as well 8-) .

I recently watched a documentary about France and the head of the Police said "in France, you are either French or you are not French. If yo...
