Ok, the weather has finally changed for the better.
Tomorrow morning (Monday) I'm out of here.

Leaving my home near Angouleme, and heading to Monaco.
Then along the Cote D'Azur to Cannes, St Tropez, Marseille.
When I reach Cap D'Agde (Where I normally take my holiday)
my wife is driving down to meet me. Her Ruck intow
We intend to spend a week or so there riding around there.

Image

After that no real plans, depends on how my dodgy back is holding up.
All being well I'll continue on to Andorra in the Pyrenean mountains, then home.
If not then I'll go back with wifey. :meh:

I'm not sure what sort of internet connections I'll find en route,
so apologies if I don't do daily updates.
Either way, hopefully loads of pics to come.

Loaded and ready for the off
Image

Start mileage,

So I finaly go a reliable wifi and I forgot to recharge my android.......doh!!!!
So this won't be a propper update, sorry

Anyhoo, all is going well, got loads to show and tell
Only bummer so far is my new Honda Aero shock I fitted about 500 miles ago, is compleatly fucked
The last couple of hundered miles I've been bouncing about like a kangeroo on steroids.
Tried 3 different Honda dealers, no help at all
They said they could order it in, it would be 3 weeks.......yea right.

Just by chance I came across a bike breakers,
They had a look for me and said they think a Yamaha BWS shock would fit.
After 5 mins searching the guy returned with a handfull of different shocks.
Well after removing my old one, sure enough the BWS shock fitted strait on.
I handed over 25euros and was on my way again....yaaaaa

Hi guys, have ya missed me?
Sorry I aint done any updates.
Fukin wifi in France is crap
Over 2hrs to try and upload a picture, yea one pic........
AND I wasn't successfull....

So decided to do this retrospectivly (is that spelled right?)
With all the pictures when I GET home.
But for now, having a great trip.
Seen some teriffic sights.
BUT defo mistake taking in Nice town.
They are all fuckin nuts there.
Had too many close calls, including one that hit the side of me whilst changing lanes.
Mind you, he came off worse. Nice big boot print in his door.

Anyhoo, having a few cold ones just now.
Overlookin the campsite pool.
Got to love them topless French girls....

Ruck running great, all the difference with te new shock.
Speeeo now at 3250, still a ways to go though.
Again, sorry for no pics, the wifi dropped out 3 times just writing this....
AND it costs 8euros an hour......

Laters Pappy
