Anybody off to Europe or anywhere else this summer? Would you tell us about the whole experience?
I can’t do any touring this years (yet again), so to read about it is a good as I am going to get!

Will be going down to the Avignon area and then across to Grenoble in May.
Using a 750cc Honda Africa Twin whilst there.
Just for a week, alas, but is always good down there.February 28, 2004 at 9:55 pm #18026

Cheers for that Razor, welcome to the Forum. Please let us all know what the snags were.
The roads and riding sounded top notch. I have driven a car in Spain, but never ridden.
What speeds did you travel at, warp drive or did you take in the surroundings? Did you camp or use hotels etc.?March 17, 2004 at 1:55 pm #18029wheelieParticipant
Welcome to the den, razorback. I’m doing the Dover Calais crossing and going thru France to Spain this year. Coming back from Santander on the ferry. Any help and advice would be appreciated
I’ve donated to the forum, have you?

Welcome Razor. Pyrenees are awesome aren’t they? Even the rain can’t dampen the enthusiasm for those roads. I totally with about your comment, stop thinking about it and do it!
@Wheelie – I’ve sent you some more info via PM on the Santander stuff.
