Hi Bugsy

If and its a big "IF" I can get the bike sorted, as far as can be assitained the rings are shot in the front cylinder I am going to change the rings on both cylinders. I have already taken the carb off it was really mucky, stripped it and cleaned now back together, looks like new !!

Away Monday am. off to Brittany for two weeks so will not get started on bike till 19th Aug so fingers crossed.

I would like to make the trip with you.

All the best

4 weeks to go until this tour, for the 'build up' please look at this topic http://www.bikeclubfrance.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4615.

I have contacted the site to check availability, and will confirm a couple of days before (weather permitting!)

I will post RV Points as and when they are decided.

I'll fill in times as soon as they are agreed.

RV points and times.

We plan to leave Intermarche in Savigne at 08.30 prompt.

(Fuel is available 24/7 with a card at this location)

We are looking to arrive at Donzenac at 11.30.

(exact location 'cafe' will be advised by Phil after he has done a rekkie.)

Simon has kindly worked out some Tour Routes for us.

Using the green (scenic) Michelin map;

Tour 1 – Leave Murat, on the D3, join the D680 and head past the Puy Mary, Cirque du Falgoux, Col de Neronne; and arrive in Salers (lunch with Nomad, and his group)

Take the D22 to Pons, then D678 to Riom es Montagnes, then D3, D62 through the Vallee de Cheylade – then back to Murat.

I reckon that’s about 120kms

Tour 2 – Murat, D3, D16 to Condat. D678,978 to Besse-et-Saint-Anastaise. Then D36 to Mont Dore; D 645 to La Tour-d'Auvergne, D203, D978 etc….Murat.

All scenic route, but 170 kms definitely a ‘full days touring!!

Tour 3 - just south of us are the Gorges de la Truyere, which I have a nice looking ‘loop’ tour.

If anyone on this forum knows the area we're visiting and has any other suggestions please let me know.

Lets just hope that the weather holds. [:)]

Hi,

Unfortunately, we will not now be able to join you all for this trip.  The wife had already booked us for a spot of animal husbandry while our neighbours are away and forgot to put it on the caledar.  Am regretting her decision already.[:(]
