Re: Noisy Bikes / Police "Crack Down"

OK, I'm going to be the odd one out by the sound of it. I've had a long biking career on sports bikes, almost always featuring full systems. I love the sound of a sports bike at full chat roaring along on the pipe. I love the rumble of a Ducati with a Termi. I love the howl of a 675 triple at 12,000...

For anyone driving/riding south, planning to use the N147 between Poitiers and Limoges: it's being dug up and re-surfaced near Bussiere Poitevine - Saint Bonnet De Bellac (close to Motobreaks, if you know it). The official diversion is quite lengthy so you might want to take a different route south...

Re: EDC Morocco, Africa, Sept 2019. Open invite for a free On/Off road & desert guided tour.

Have a fantastic time, you chaps. I have great memories of Maroc and really must visit again some day. I was adding some boswellia additive (frankinsence) to our horses' feed yesterday and the smell took me right back to the amazing Fez spice market. I still have a prayer mat and a clay pipe from Ke...

Re: Alps Holiday Video

Not tame at all, David. I used to love touring like this. I was always on sports bikes, but it's the same principle. Link together all the green-bordered twisty mountain passes on the map and have a hoot. Don't carry too much, stay in 2-3 star hotels, ride all day, eat and drink all evening. Lovely....

A week today I should be on the ferry, getting slightly excited now, I'm aiming to get to the campsite Sunday afternoon/evening and leaving Friday or Saturday depending on weather excuses etc ;) I've also emailed you Dave. Are we still meeting at Phils? (edit: just seen Phil might not be able to ma...
