Hello all

I've just bought a Suzuki 650 XT and I'm planning a road trip from France to Ireland and Scotland

Look at the clock and the calendar.
It'll never be now again.
So just get out and do it.
As fast as you possibly can.

Let’s hope you don’t need a IDP by then. I’m hoping I can get back in by the time those jokers in westminster finish playing.

Greetings from Lincolnshire.
Unless it's got two wheels and an engine slung in the middle, I'm not interested.

 :welcome2: to you, west and north coast of Scotland are stunning, east coast not so nice really.
Be sure to take a good insect repellant as the midges can be a nuisance.
Ireland is a most delightful country,and lots of character.
