Mind your own business Goldie :mrgreen:

It's a special deal between Henry and me :wink:

All I can say is that we've never let british riders thirsty :!: Have we Henry ?
Easy on the throttle...steady on the gears...roll her over gently...and she'll last for many years !

The hospitality and the welcome we have always recieved has been superb, we have never been thirsty, or hungry, wet yes, hot yes, but feeling left out or not welcome never.

It is a pleasure conversing(or trying to converse) with people who are thinking on the same lines as yourself, discussing the problems that come and get you for driving a motorcyle which has had a 60 year production,

These are a few of the reasons that I enjoy driving my Royal Enfield through France, taking away nothing from the English beers, food & cheeses, one of the pleasures is after a days ride, sat at your camp, you can get superb local wine & cheese where ever you are.

One of my mottos in life is:- Drink what the locals drink, eat what the locals eat, that way you can end up as bad tempered, equally ugly, and as hungover as the rest of them, then you will fit in even better, The other main advantage after a few local tasters, my French improves, and all around understand and can see how fluent I have become.

Claude a few tiins of Boddingtons are being put by for you.

Je suis épaté par les gars qui dessinent les cartes routières, c'est une sacrée responsabilité, t'imagines qu'ils oublient un virage! Brèves de comptoir Gourio.

Hi Henry,
From Cherbourg down to St-Lo, if you have time to visit, you can go that ways:

- Cherbourg > Le Becquet (very nice little harbourg, all built with"dry" stones) > Barfleur>St-Vaast la Hougue > alongside the sea>Utah Beach>Sainte-Mère l'Eglise>Pont l'Abbé>Périers>Coutances (have a night in Coutances or surroudings, St-Lô is not a touristic city);

- Coutances>Villedieu-les-Poêles>Vire.

You may choose the other side, the wild one:
-Cherbourg> Cap de la Hague (with Port Racine, the smallest harbour in France)>Beaumont-Hague> Les Pieux > Barneville-Carteret > Poertbail > Créances > Agon-Coutainville < Coutances.
- - Coutances>Villedieu-les-Poêles>Vire.

These both will be very nice travels in Cotentin.

de Beaumont-Hague vers Les Pieux, passer absolument par Vauville, son calvaire de dunes (Le petit Thot), remonter sur Biville en traversant les pistes du Camp Maneyrol ( le plus vieux terrain de vol à voile de France ),
Faire une pause sur le port de Dielette ( ne pas visiter le chantier de l'EPR ) :mrgreen:
aaah quel joli pays, il serait dommage de tirer tout droit au milieu du Cotentin
Ma belette commence sa nouvelle vie
