    After doing Spain & Portugal in 2018, I'm also off to the Alps in 2019, with the same group. Mainly Switzerland and Italy (via France of course).
    Not till late August though - need to try to sort out some other stuff in the meantime; would love to do a weekend away, possibly camping, either Scotland or an Assen race weekend.

    You should try Northumberland  :028:
    Fantastic place with empty roads

    I'm off in June on another amazing tour with the 'Combined Ops Tours' crew for their new 'Rockets and Bunkers' WW2 tour of Normandy.

    Riding (via tunnel) to Honfleur stopping to look at V1 and V2 rocket launch sites.  Day 2 and Day 3 looking at features of the Atlantic Wall and heading to the far west of Normandy stopping at Maisy Battery and Mont Canisy Battery.

    Staying overnight in the historic city of Bayeaux before heading back for the third and final night in Honfleur. 

    Probably be in the region of a 600 mile trip over four days through the beautiful French countryside.

    It coincides with my birthday too (21 again obviously!) So really looking forward to this trip.

    Hopefully will be heading from Thailand to Laos for a tour there, Luang Namtha, Luang Prabang, Vang Vieng, Vientianne, maybe Plain of Jars then back to Thailand. Should be a fun trip in February. I say hopefully because they have changing rules as far as border crossings for motorcycles. If not will just tour in Thailand for about two weeks.

    I combined Northumberland with North Yorks Moors a couple of years ago. Never realised how good the roads were or how many picturesque villages etc. Normally I just blast by either on the A1/M1 or M6.

    Didn't do much last year so ready for a big trip this year. Either down to Rome via Vienna and maybe Prague (going for city sight seeing), or alternatively through to Romania via I don't know what. I fancy a look round Transylvania  :014:
    Anything more than two wheels is unnecessary.
