Motorcycle Tour to the Harley-Davidson Rally in St Tropez

One of my favourite Harley-Davidson rallies is the European Festival, held in St Tropez and Grimaud each year. Getting some early season riding on great roads riding across Europe is a terrific way to kick-start the years longer rides.

Saturday 2nd May 2015 to Sunday 10th May 2015, 8 nights

Prices. £1,685 per rider in his/her own room, or £2,075 for a rider and pillion sharing a room. For two riders sharing a room the price is £1,350 each.

Prices include all accommodation, plus transporting your bike back to the UK.

Countries we will be visiting on the way: France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland.

What a great motorcycle touring video

I love this video as it really shows what is so fantastic about motorcycle touring.

At 20 minutes it is long, but they cram loads into it about their 6 months on their tour of South America. If this doesn’t make you want to go on your own motorcycle adventure, then nothing will. They even did it on an old Honda Transalp XL600V.

Winter is here and I am spending way too long thing about where to go on next years rides.

Roll on Spring!

One heck of a USA road trip on a Harley-Davidson

Okay, my regular readers will have seen some of these pictures before and people who have read my book 'France In America' certainly will, but I thought I'd make a video that tried to show the spirit of my tour of the USA.

This is what I came up with.....
