    Another one off the net of the Col de Turini - that was a fun one!

    I took my Moto Guzzi V7 around Europe back in 2013, was awesome. I've only taken my Triumph around the south of the UK so far though, went over Dartmoor motocamping with it the other weekend which was lovely

    The south of the UK is also fantastic. The Alps are in a different league though...

    Not sure yet mate - possibly the emerald Isle next year? Or Romenia, or the Balkans, or... who's to say? :)

    Lets hope that these travel restrictions aren't too restrictive next year, and hope that this virus either dies out, (would be nice) or a vaccine becomes available to all. Orkney's for me next year, for now at least.

    The Orkneys are gorgeous. We sailed there years ago. Whilst we were there we rented a car and drove about, and visited Skara Brae. Very impressive. The Highland Park distillery is worth a visit, too.

    Forgot to say that I googled Skara Brae, and time permitting it's now on my to do list.

    A last addition - I found the French very courteous to bikes in traffic. When filtering they move out of the way, and even on dual/single carriageways room is made for bikes to pass.
    The best one though was when I was hurtling towards the town of Besancon - I was overtaken by a French biker who made me slow down rapidly, just in time to point out a hidden speed camera... VERY thoughtful!

    Twisty roads, delicious food, and beer! What more can a guy on a bike ask for? Outstanding thread, Vulpes! :heart:

    A final note - if you go to France and it's wet, beware of the white lines on pedestrian crossings... They're ABSOLUTELY FECKING LETHALLY SLIPPERY!
