    I concur with that. However, I did read that you should have a range of speed limit badges for different countries.

    Just ignore it all.

    I never use GB stickers and if I can avoid it I don't have those hideous EU number plates.

    I have to admit we have done Holland, France, Spain and Italy in the last few years and we don't have any speed badges fitted, we are 3850Kg. (That's the vehicle, not me)

    only commercial vehicles....as in work trucks.

    motorhome is classed as a private, none commercial vehicle no matter what the weight.

    Tonysantara fitted them to his RV, then later seen taking them off again.:Doh::roflmto:

    Are you saying that only Commercial vehicles have to comply to the speed limit or comply with the stickers. Do >3500KG motorhomes still have to comply with the lower speed limit without the stickers?

    Apparently, you need a GB sticker on your bike board. Have you ever seen one?

    Very poor, wrong flag. There is only one flag. :Cool:

    Also, please note, nothing flies higher than THE flag. [​IMG]

    I know you find it embarrassing Chris, but face it, you were born in little England, you live in England, you don't have a Welsh accent, you'll probably be cheering on the English Wendy ball team tonight. Embrace it Chris, your one of us. England; the best country in the world:thumb::roflmto:
