Going to make it to Italy this summer after being sidelined with mechanical problems last summer.

Want to do some weekend camping trips in the UK to get back into the swing of it.

Might take a quick trip back to Ireland (lived in Galway for 13 years) to revisit some old haunts at some point

Nothing planned as yet as I am just that kind of spontaneous fun loving guy :roll: Pyrenees at some point probably but I cant even decide what bike , go twice I guess :D The wife flying out and me meeting her in Dubrovnik worked really well so might try that again but I keep eyeing St Petersburg and she is not so keen being a sun lover, choices, choices .
The secret of a long life is knowing when its time to go.

No bike trips planned yet, but I’ve booked a 17 day trip to California and the south west USA in June in a Corvette Stingray 8-)

It’s my wife’s 50th in September ( :shock: ), so I’ve also booked a trip to Athens as it’s at top of her bucket list

Now that I'm all sorted with a trailer for my bike I've now decided to head for Norway for our summer holidays.Camping all the way with a bit of luxury like a proper air bed and plenty of room to carry a few boxes of wine to cut down on costs!
Usually when I've travelled abroad before I've been on my own and happy to blast along all day putting in big miles but only getting a fleeting glance at the scenery.I'm taking my girlfriend abroad on a bike for the first time this year though and I think I'm at the stage now where I will be happy to take my time,just relaxing and having plenty of stops and not do great mileages.The plan is to stay around the fjord region and stay put for two nights at a time so the following day we can get in a mountain hike.Something else that wasn't really possible before I got the trailer. :)
Sod it,I'm not good at relaxing and taking it easy! Change of plans again after reading an article in Bike from a guy who rode to Nordkapp.He's been all over the world and reckons the roads up north are the best in the world.We've only got 9 and a half days in Norway so won't manage Nordkapp but the plan now is to at least make it to the arctic circle.6 days riding up through the fjords and along the coast to Bodo and 3 and a half days back down to Oslo seems doable. :D

On the hope list (because work or family have an uncanny knack of buggering my plans up ) -

Yorkshire Treffen in February
(My) Cumbrian rally in May
NC500 in June
Normandy in summer hols (family in car with Africa Twin on trailer) to stay with Heavy who I met on a European trip
Bushcraft weekends in the woods chilling in my hammock

Gotta be a cheap year as have more outgoings than incomings at the moment so have told the family there's no Canary Island holiday this year hence I am now Evil Dad in our household

Two of us sailing from Fishguard to Rosslare then up the west coast of Ireland to Portrush for the North West 200. Then ride to Belfast for ferry to Liverpool.
Was going to TT, been a few times and always put deposit down for the following year... Selling deposit if anyone interested?

A 3 week trip planned for July for 3 of us.
Hull > Rotterdam ferry already booked - one way.
Then into Germany and down to Rome, via the Alps, to stay with a friend. 2 of us then carry on to Bari and across to Dubrovnik.

Back via Croatia touching on Montenegro & Bosnia. If all goes to plan through Slovenia and maybe clipping Hungary, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Poland & Germany.
Or we may do Slovenia then The Dolomites and back that way.
