Peugeot Metropolis for touring

Post by Sunbeam »

Hi Folks,

I've just got back from a three week tour over 4000 miles (and sixteen ferries!) around Scandinavia on my 2018 Metropolis. Furthest north was the North Cape and the whole trip was very comfortable and without any problems, proving it as a capable touring machine. For one week we were two-up, as my wife flew out to join me at Tromso. Longest slog was 680 miles in two days to get back from the northern tip of Denmark to the Hook of Holland, with rain nearly all the way - but still kept dry.

Glad to pass on experiences if that may be of help to anyone.

Regards,
Sunbeam

I gather the Metropolis is a good long distance bike. I've read many reviews. They seem to go and go and the engines are bullet proof. May look at one myself eventually but I don't want to let my GTS300 go. I love it too much! ;)
