  1. Hi, This is a great site, and thank you very much for the work you put on the site.
    I am planning to travel for vacation, from Norway to Germany in 2015.

  2. Very good article but getting a bit dated and could do with updating around some of the new road legislation in France and Itialy.

  3. Thanks for this useful article. I’m about to embark on a trip from Den Haag to Fermo, in the central part of Italy, and it will be my first long ride.
    Your article was very useful and reassuring at the same time!

  4. Buying gas in France is getting easier each year, just a couple of pointers:
    First if you intend to use your credit card abroad make sure it is the new “chip & pin” type. Then remember to tell your bank you will be using it abroad and give dates.
    The cheapest gas is from supermarkets Leclerc, Carrefour etc. The new stations have the “self serve” 24/7 pumps with the instructions in various languages. Some do require you to choose the type of fuel before authorization.
    Happy trails

  7. A good pace can be maintained on any size motorcycle. It is not the top speed that matters, but the average.
    Riding slower is less tiring than riding fast so you need fewer rests. The result is a tortoise and hare situation.
