Off on tour

Postby Humbug » Wed Jun 19, 2019 7:24 am

Well Chaps, the 12S is getting an outing on Friday across the Pyrenees. Leaving from Nottingham on Friday, down to Newhaven then Dieppe, Le Mans, Bordeaux, Biarittz, across the Pyrenees to Perpignon, up to Millau, Paris, Calais and back to Nottingham.
Should put me over the 100,000 on the clock but thats what they are for isnt it?
All the regular checks done, new tyres and a spare alternator belt in the pannier.
We will see how the bike stacks up against my pals Tiger 1050. Taking the drone and Ghost X so hopefully some good pics and videos on the trip.
Any other tips for the trip welcome.

Sounds good! :) Hope the weather stays fine for you, last time I came over Millau it was raining so heavily I couldn't see where I was going - at least there's barriers to stop you going over the side! :shock:

Do you pack spare coils as well? I always have a main and one of each lower in my luggage, just in case.
