D Day Normandy 2019
« on: February 13, 2019, 21:03:37 »
Hello folks, sorry for not introducing myself before. I have a 2016 strom 1000...loving it!

Anyway, back to the subject, is anyone going over to Normandy for the 75th anniversary of D Day this June? Me and a friend on a Transalp are going on the Tuesday eve from Pompey to Le Havre, returning Friday eve. It will probably be the last time the old blokes will be there en masse, will hopefully get the chance to chat with a few. Went to the 70th in 2014, was a great experience.

Hello Oddsurfer. Yes, I've proposed a Camping weekend based at Bayeux for the end of the June. See thread here in Ride Outs/Bike Meets:

Don't know if that coincides with your plans but it will obviously be chocker around the 6th June.

Thanks for your reply.  Looks like we'll miss each other by a few weeks. Yes it's going to be busy on and around June 6th. Do you do many ride outs/weekends? Will have to come to some later on.

Being based in Southern Brittany we (our Brittany Bikers Club) do a lot of day meets, some camping weekends and manage a Tour every Year, this time it's to Puy de Dome and back in May.

Yes, it's a shame we're not overlapping in June but should you have other ventures to Northern France then do post them up. You never know!
