    What does the forum use to get about once you have reached your destination.
    You know the sort of thing, park up canopy out chairs out, you then decide to go and do a bit of site seeing. Maybe a bit of shopping. How do you do it.:ROFLMAO:

    We got 2 electric bikes which we find great but no good for town shopping.
    And busses are free for us oap's so no worry on parking when you get into town.

    Either a motorbike which we tow on a trailer, or bicycles. We've even been known to use public transport or walk!

    We use public transport or walk. Bus passes ok in England but not recognised in Scotland!:Sad: They have their own apparently.

    We're much fitter now than when we were working and driving everywhere. 18 months of walking has paid off!:ROFLMAO:

    125cc motorbike, pushbike or walking. Motorbike being the favourite for us both in good weather, pushbike when it's not so warm in autumn and winter.
