Double jabbers OAPs on tour

Post by Sagalout »

Anyone considering touring France ,Spain later in the year September October if able to .If double jabbers don't have to Quarantine. Must admit hardly ridden lost interest a bit wanted to go with the wife in campervan .Had my 25% cash payout from pension pot and she flatley refuses this year at least. So thinking if on my own keep money in bank go on scooter .I've got trial run to Scotland booked August shake down for me and scoot .Just wondered if anyone else had euro trips planned . Hoping no tests to return by then for double jabbers but possibly would do test .Have to add I'm quite antisocial so won't be propping bars up chatting with anyone and accom have booked is self-catering mainly .Apart from touring parts then be Ibis Budget 😆

Sounds fun. I can vouch for Scotland this year. Not overrun as threatened.
For Europe I’m a bit of a Belgium fan. We have been biking down to Spa once a year to help out/get in the way of a mate’s LMP3 team. There is also the really fun supermoto race at Mettet on a street course. Lots of interesting WW2 stuff to see.

Pikey told me he might be going to Spain in September. I think he was taking the ferry to Bilbao or Santander.
I said I might go with him but don't think I will. Not sure if he's banned from here??

I might nip over to France for a few days but it'll be at very short notice and depends if I can sort out someone to cover me while I'm away.

I'm coming back via Santander going out via Caen if do whole of what's planned if shorter version be direct to Santander. Another consideration is which country has easiest restrictions in and out at the time .
