We have a Scotland trip planned in May. I have never been and thought that would be a good trip to see how things go before we progress to Europe.

East coast of Italy, hopefully in September. That means a run down to Rosslare for an overnight ferry, then diagonally through France and Northern Italy. About 3,300k for the round trip.

I work in swindon uk and my house is in murcia southern spain. so as soon as the airfares increase for the summer holidays we will use the bike(a cheaper option). 1200 miles each way or 22 hours from the ferry port north france (non-stop).looking forward to seeing how the trophy copes.  :152: :028:

Thinking about a trip to Mold, Flintshire in May for two or three nights.

We are definitely off to the Black Forest & Vosges Mountains in June with our son and daughter-in-law on their Rocket III plus a couple of friends on their CBF 1000 GT and 11 other various bikes and bodies.  :046: :821:

3 times we have gone Hull > Rotterdam with intentions of going round the Black Forest.

3 times on getting to Holland, the weather forecast has been bad in the Black Forest region.

3 times we have changed tack & headed down the south of France for decent weather.

One day we will do a Black Forest tour.

Good luck with your trip, hope you catch some decent weather.  :152:

If you didn't already know, the Rocket III is a fearsome beast in a straight line.  :005:

However, round some bends, the TT will be all over the Rocket.  :001:

This Summer, myself & Mrs Wscad are riding :-

Yorkshire > Folkstone
Folkstone > Calais
Calais > Morzano (North Italy)
Morzano > Monaco

After that, fly by the seat of the pants.  :156:

Maybe drop into Spain, then Portugal & up the west coast of France back home.

Enjoy your trip everyone.  :152:
