Re: Cameras in France

I am heading to France for my first visit in a fortnight and to be honest all this makes the place sound pretty grim :shock: As has been said earlier the days of using France as your own personal race track are long gone, and they have embraced speed bumps (even on the Tour de France routes :o ) al...

Re: Scottish locals.....

Do you know about this forecast: https://www.smidgeup.com/midge-forecast/

Weather forecast can probably give a good idea as they won't like wet and windy.

They are on D-roads too. Your best bet is still twisty mountain roads, D or C, away from villages, where you can have a proper blat without too much chance of a snap.
Sounds just like the UK, go fast where cars can't, and you'll probably not get any camera bother.

Re: Him Lowrider

Seen that on Facebook, J'm amazed how little damage there appears to be to the bike after such a catastrophic even where the frame has cracked near to the steering head, did it let go at standstill? Had the bike suffered much abuse, or just on been ridden on nice roads, do you know?

Re: Cameras in France

Not been to France for about 5 years, till last year, and I noticed how much more prevalent the 30kph town limits are, with speed bumps to help remind you of it. In Germany a couple of weeks ago and they seem to have caught the 30kph in town fever too.

Re: Euro Breakdown Cover....Again

I also have to pay an additional £20 premium on my travel insurance as the bike is over 125cc, but I'm not complaining about that either. My "free" travel insurance with my bank only covers me if I ride my bike out to where I'm going to be on holiday, if I fly, then ride a bike, I wouldn't be cover...

Re: Euro Breakdown Cover....Again

Britannia Rescue = LV. Covered my BM Airhead when I went to Europe on it. And one benefit is that they'll repatriate your bike if you have an incident with it, many say it's the insurance companies job.

Look under the rubber flap on rear and yes its a micro usb connection, the 595 uses a mini usb like samsung..
Some Samsung devices use the micro usb connector, and some use the new C type.
