    Coconut, what Crit'Air did you end up with?

    My certificate came through today and they've put the old girl on a purple #1 category - which is surprising?? I was expecting a Euro 4 orange classification.

    We may need it around Rouen next week, perhaps. Anyway, it's here so we are all legal but I am genuinely surprised they class an eight year old bike in with the hybrids and LPG cars.

    Maybe they have messed up and I'll find myself in the Bastille at some point. C'est la vie and all that  :002:

    Hi I got a Yellow cat 2 which is euro 4, looking at the website. Maybe they think yours will breakdown and become battery powered.   :745:

    I got the Purple Cat 1 too - I have no idea what it means,
    I just gave the French my money, they gave me the sticker,
    and if I ever go to France on my Trophy again, I will put it
    back on display, to keep them happy if I should happen to
    wander into any of their Towns that require it !  :027:

    I hope I'm not hijacking this thread so apologies in advance. For a NON UK registered bike, ie Australia, travelling to France and other parts of Europe, would I need a "Critair" sticker ? I'm ok with all the other requirements although I read somewhere that the breathalyser requirement for France has been scrapped ??? Does anyone from a non UK registered bike have any info on breakdown insurance for Europe? Any advice would be appreciated.

    Lucky you, I got a cat 2 (yellow) for my 2013 Trophy SE .
    What it means is that you'll probably be exempt of any circulation restriction in case of pollution picks in any of the ZFE (Low Emission Zones).
    Electric cars don't need a Crit'Air sticker, others get stickers ranging from 1 to  5  (1 being the best, 5 the worst)
    An old biker must be a good rider
