Often admired the big T Max’s, thinking that’s the way to go when I’m too old to throw my leg over the Explorer.
Had similar thought's and most of the maxi scooters aren't step through like their smaller versions, eg Vespa's, so getting onto them can be a bit convoluted.
Good point.

Re: Any Maxi-Scooter riders (?)

Often admired the big T Max’s, thinking that’s the way to go when I’m too old to throw my leg over the Explorer. But what are scooters like for serious European touring, assuming I’m still up for those types of adventures in a few years time? Are they comfortable for long distances, capable of carry...

But does anyone know which one?
Simpson?
Out of time I’m afraid. Paul_C got it correct 2 pages back. It’s the Bardenas Reales in northern Spain.

Re: Last Year’s Trip

The next day we wanted motorcycle heaven from the outset, so the satnavs were set for Sospel and the Col du Turini. We weren’t disappointed more great weather, more great riding. The switchbacks on the climb and views up to the col are breathtaking. From the Turini we plotted a cross country mountai...

Re: Last Year’s Trip

The fun started with our late arrival in Briançon and trying to track down the owner of our airBnB. He eventually appeared and showed us to his small but bijou apartment, sans towels and bedding. We had none, so had no choice but to fork out a small fortune to hire some sheets. (One for the lessons ...

Re: Last Year’s Trip

The following day was a most pleasant ride along stunning D roads, with weather to match, and into the mountains to Annecy. The Ibis with secure parking next door, an early evening meal and a stroll along the shore of the lake was the very ticket. I do like Annecy, even if it is a bit of a honey pot...

Re: Last Year’s Trip

The previous year we’d parted company with the Swiss guys after spending our last night together in Lourdes (a place we all swore we’d never revisit) after our Pyrenean adventure, before Dan and I headed south into northern Spain. Imagine my surprise when searching Booking dot com for cheap accommod...

By lunchtime it was hot, bloody hot, and shade was our priority.

Last Year’s Trip

With nothing currently better to do, I thought I’d have a go at this. Hoping it works. Last Year’s Trip For the last few years, Dan (my long time riding pal) and I have met up with a couple of Swiss mates for our annual European bike trips, and last year was no exception. The only difference was it ...
