What gear for Europe ?

Malky

Guest
I have never been to Euroland on a bike before. But I shall do this June.
So what stuff do I need to take ?

My thoughts thus far are
  • Look at mod'ing the headlight (R1100GS)
  • Spare set of bulbs
  • a GB sticker
  • Straps for the Eurotunnel ? as per the ferry thread
  • a map
  • a small flash of Whisky

Anything else ?

No, Malky, I think you've covered everything there.

In fact, on second thoughts, perhaps that's far too much stuff.:D

Is that slang for flask or summat?? If so make it LARGE and if it has to be Scotch then make it a Glengoyne :D

Ha another elementary and deliberate mistake Mr Holmes. Well spotted - was thinking of Glenmorangie.

So what parts of the United Kingdom's of England, Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland are not in Europe then Captain Caveman?!! :D

Another mistake el deliberato - should have said Euromainland. All right !!
 
what about strapping front wheel to the stand ? either centre or side. Or am I just paranoid ?

less straps more room for chocolate and Whisky !!!!
 
I'm Paranoid Too

I tie front wheel to centre stand so it if it rocks forward it don't come off the stand.

G...

Oh a Credit Card and RAC cover makes me feel safe...
 
You're paranoid!

Eurotunnel is pretty smooth - park you bike facing forward - if the back wheel is on the ground (using either stand it will be if you've got luggage on - Oops, I forgot that you've got a perspex barn door on the front of your bike! :D ). Have a wander around and enjoy the view. Just remember to sit on or hold your bike as the trains slows/stops.

Hmmm good point Greg, these bike compartments are a bit tight for space, I think Malky needs to go and declare this to LeShuttle HQ, that thing and me in the same space could be a problem :D

Though I think he did say he's taken it off now as Winter is now over :confused:

No need for a sticker so long as you have a GB Europlate, NOT a union jack, St.George's cross etc etc
