France/ Spain tour July 2016

Post by frencheric69 » Fri Mar 11, 2016 9:38 pm

Well it's that time of year again. Me and Hairy are off on our hols again.
We are leaving on Friday 1st July and barring any mishaps will be returning on Friday the 15th. We are both leaving from Portsmouth to Le Havre but I'll be returning via Roscoff/ Plymouth while Hairy is sailing Caen/ Portsmouth. I've planned a route which takes in a few places we've been before but also some roads we've never been so should be interesting.
If anyone fancies tagging along, the more the merrier, just contact me or Hairy for more details.

Well. Off tomorrow morning for a well deserved 2 week jaunt. Weather not looking brilliant at the mo but as long as it doesn't lash down, all day, every day then I'll be happy. I'm sure there'll be pics and exaggerated stories to post on our return. While we're away, ride safe and have fun. Catch you all later :drunk:

Good luck guys; Just been myself! 2nd July to 14th Me and the xjr did 3175mls; she never missed a beat. Stopped in Paris, Arges , Lloret, Barcelona, Benidorm and Alicante. Stopped for a week at my bro's place then home via Lloret and Orleans.tried to post some pics, either I'm not very computer literate (which is true)or it just wouldn't let me.
