Re: bleedin french laws

Two of us each did 2,000 miles across France and around the Alps during June. Had a great time, all Hotels had people that spoke good English except one small family place and the Owner there bought us beers on arrival.

However there is another clause in that their maximum bike capacity is 1400cc. Covers most I know, but only just got my Kawasaki GTR1400 under t...

Just back from a Bank Holiday run from Weston up to the Devil's Bridge, then Rhayader and the Elan Vall...

Re: New Member from North Somerset

Sorry but lost the original message when I did the second PS. but yes I really do have a 10 plate XT1200 First Edition. It came with side panniers but I'm looking for a Yamaha or Givi Top Box of similar style if anyone has a spare? If I can get the photo's to upload at the third or later attempt you...
