2017 Trips

Post by Gman1969 »

Hi There
Does anyone know of any European trips happening towards the end of May this year or end of June? Looking at 5 or 6 days.
Cheers
Stuart

That's would be good although I could not go till 28th or any time that week after, the last time I went to Baden Baden we got the 6.30am Eurotunnel and managed to get there in a day - its quite a slap but worth it :)
That's a shame as would definitely been up for that, thanks anyway

Cheers

Just a day out then.  We don't get to the hotel until the 27th.  The return trip we intend to do in one hop but a few will linger a bit.  As you say a good slog but no problem.

Is this Falcon Motorcycle Tour of any interest to you, http://www.motorcycle-sport-touring.com ... -tour.html

You may notice someone 2 up on an RT in the video.

You might be better off changing the date of the title to get more interest in this thread ... It's now 2017
I was born with nothing and unfortunately I still have most of it left.

If you do end up doing it, give me a shout, I may consider it myself, did it in 2013.

A view on the route between Ballina & Clifden.

The "Sky Road" (near Clifden), was worth riding for this view.

We used the ferry to cross the River Shannon between Killimer & Tarbet, it saved us riding an additional 20 miles on motorway.

It was, are you looking for a "guided" or "self guided" tour, the Ireland Tour is "self guided".
