When this is over. Where are you taking your bike?

Post by SteveW » Fri Apr 17, 2020 10:42 am

Me and a mate have a Hull-Zeebrugge ferry booked for 2nd June (we are hoping we'll be okay, but we are monitoring the situation and we can put it back a few weeks if required)
We've got 16 days, we've a vague idea about the Balkans....doing all the Balkan countries, but as normal other than a basic plan and a ferry booked we'll make it up as we go. No camping....too much to carry and hotels are for peanuts once you get out of Western Europe.
We also fancy basing ourselves in one place for 2/3 days, stripping the bikes of luggage and riding some trails. Rather than our normal, different hotel every night...."Let's keep moving" mantra.
I'm on my Super10, my mate is on a GS1200.

Think I'll totally forget travelling abroad this year and try focus on next year, let the world/life recover from all this turmoil. I'd a stem-cell transplant just over 2yrs ago and don't wanna risk it...

We rode Switzerland/Austria in 2012 and really loved it, so maybe a return similar 2wk plan for 2021.

We were lucky to get a trip in down to Alicante just before lockdown, but doesn’t seem to make my feet any less itchy. Problem here in France is that the restaurants won’t be opening again until mid July. We’ll probably head down south destination Le Lavandou.

Probably a couple of days around Wales, but the Misses is itching to get away in the Motorhome once it’s all over.

Alas, mostly to the office. It will still make a nice change :)
And now, Harry, let us step out into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.
