Hi everyone, having just signed up to Motorhome Fun and exploring the various forms I never expected to find a motorcycling section. I look forward to reading and joining in the posts.

I am a very keen motorcyclist and love long distance touring, we have some fantastic roads up here and a great "biking" community, we manage to get a good ride out every week - despite the weather.

At the moment I have a Triumph 1200 Explorer and one of the new Africa Twins. Both great bikes.

Well that`s our 12th year & still loving it.
Welcome to the club definitely the place to be if you own a motorhome here you will find a fountain of knowledge.

There are also some very active motorcyclists, I am currently fettling this little beauty.

A mate brought his 350 round a couple of years back, I quite fancy one.

I was looking at this one for sale as a s/h 4 owner machine they are asking £3999. A little too expensive i thought so did a bit more research and found a brand new one with the euro 4 engine, ABS and rear disc break. Paid £4752 OTR well happy, pick it up in March.

Welcome!
And here's my Honda Crosstourer 1200X in Portugal a few years ago, overlooking the Douro Valley from Casal de Loivos, near Pinhao! Love touring in Europe, especially France and Portugal.

As the wife keeps pointing out, "You can only ride one at a time",!

As the thread starter I'll admit to being 72, I usually tour in a group of 4 but last year my pals were all busy. I decided to go it alone, the only plan I had was a ferry from Newcastle to Amsterdam and a destination of the Transfargasan Pass in Romania. I had booked my first nights accommodation but each evening decided where to head for next. I visited 7 countries, did 3,800 miles and thoroughly enjoyed my own company. I met some great bikers on the route and had some brilliant evenings. Age should never be an issue - just do it ! Now where next ?
