Saint Angeau to Caen

Well we woke up to frost on the bikes so the European warm dream is over. Today was cold like proper winter cold. Not ideal when you have a cloudy dull ride of 375 miles.

Danny and I are full up with cold and sneezing in your motorcycle helmet at 70mph is not fun. The ride was boring to be honest and the weather made it all the worse but with more layers than the Michelin man we made good progress.

So the jury is out on the methodology of a two day France leg this late in the year. That’s not so say we haven’t enjoyed it but it’s definitely not the preferred method Danny and Martin would reccomend unless you had to (for getting to and from the Moto Piston rally) And if you had to, take 3 days to get through France. I imagine they would reccomend a van. However they hadn’t ridden it until this one either so it was an option/trial they had to try to scratch the itch on. Even tho its my first time riding in Europe and attending the Moto Piston rally I would agree it may not be the best method this time of year.

However as far as the Moto Piston Rally is concerned it was superb! what an event in a spectacular location and I know I will be back for sure. Just maybe not riding down again and leaving the riding for the glorious roads down there.
