A Little Trip to France

I have been a long time lurker on here so I thought it about time I shared something. I have just got back from a first time tour in France.

We did 1400 miles going as follows:

Day 1 - Le Havre to Vierzon - 240 miles - showers
Day 2 - Vierzon to Clermont-Ferrand - 150 miles - showers
Day 3 - Clermont-Ferrand to Millau - 150 miles - p**sing down
Day 4 - Millau to Thivers - 175 miles - showers
Day 5 - Thiviers to La Rochelle - 140 miles - dry
Day 6 - La Rochelle to Le Mans - 175 miles - dry
Day 7 - Le Mans to Le Havre - 150 miles - dry

All mileage was on single carriageway as much as possible so we could enjoy the scenery. There were 4 of us travelling on bikes (all solo). Me on the KTM, 2 mates on Tranny's (lots of jokes there) and another on a Monster!

The weather was a little mixed shall we say but all in all a great trip and the bike performed very well.

Sounds like the weather could have been better but fun non the less.

I don't believe you only took 1 photo though :)

You're right, I did take more photos but they were typically men drinking beer or had a couple of Tranny's in the way!

And why did you make that guy sleep standing resting on his topbox? You could have let him share your room, if only some floor space. I mean, I've heard of budget tours, but that's going a bit far. Unless.............

Perhaps he was avoiding the trannies? :o
