Planning a Euro trip

Planning a Euro trip

Myself and a mate are planning a Euro trip in September and this is what we have so far.


The total distance is 3,300km over 2 weeks. It’s still rough and we’re looking at areas to shave off and places to spend an extra night or so and to chill out. Anyone any input, perhaps places we should consider etc.


The times and mileage are taken from Google Maps and don’t include rests or lunch stops. Again this is just rough. I do wonder if we are trying to fit too much in

Insurance full disclosure?

Insurance full disclosure?

Alright lads, Just wondering when getting an insurance quote and you get asked “does your bike have any mods” how do you answer? and has it affected the quote/price? I’ve always said “No” to the question even though every bike I’ve had has had at least an after market exhaust.

So it was all. down to an electrical connection coming loose going to the kill switch. .Power was switched off coming into a bend.

Kawasaki stated that they had never heard of such.a thing happening before.


What a tragic accident to a young man who was on the up before this tragedy at last year’s Southern 100 .


I had just left the area myself .moments before the crash. to be honest’I found that section of the course hard to watch.
