Hi,

For those in Europe or who have ridden in Europe. Now you can put the countries on your map.

If you go to the Map Generator towards the bottom you can select other continents.

Hi all
My wife and I did a European holiday back in April May. We stayed with family for a few days and hired a Beemer for a day.

From London, UK in 1977 : I did a whirlwind tour of France, Italy, Switzerland, Germany and Luxembourg in a Triumph TR6 with a couple of buddies in 5 days. That rear seat is only an illusion after an hour or two. Went to France several times after that and from Canada after 1988. In 1990, I went to Portugal and drove thru Spain to Biarritz, France. 2003, 2008 Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. 2005 , went to Brussels, Belgium for the day from Paris. Several trips to Mauritius, my birthplace.
These were all before my two-wheeling days. On my next visit to Biarritz, I hope to hop on two wheels and do some Pays Basque and Pyrenees touring before I hang up the spurs or whatever it is we use to egg the two-wheeled beasts.
Living in Canada, barely an hour from the US border, I shop in the US practically on a weekly basis.
Jay.

Late 90's my family and my wife's parents went to Europe to visit her father's relatives. Went through Germany, Austria, Luxembourg, France and Hungary. Got to ride a Borrowed K75 BMW in Germany and Austria. Loved the autobonn and trying out the different beers in each town.

I've been to England, Ireland, Switzerland, France, and Italy. After last year's trip to Italy and France, I came home and bought a silverwing the next day. True story. I was impressed by the numbers and the skills of the riders there. Fearless they are.

I came home on Thursday, looked on line, and bought an 03 with 16k miles. Though I didn't ride in Europe, I was certainly inspired while I was there.

My father was a career soldier and served 6 years in Germany.

I went to high school in Wurzburg, HS. Visited many countries but the best was East Berlin, through Check Point Charlie.

Never ridden in any country ,but, my own well, I suppose Wales is another country technically. Never wanted to either. I love riding and rarely go more than two days without riding except, when I go on Holiday (Vacation, as USA say). I like to go away completely from what I normally do, I don't drink alcohol except on holiday, I don't travel by bus except on holiday, I like someone else to cook my food make my bed and clean my room whilst I and my wife wander around taking in the sites. My wife does not share my two wheel enthusiasm, and never has. I still cover an average of ten thousand miles a year and never tire of the places i like to visit, each to their own I say. Smile

The countries I have ridden in are in blue on the map of Europe under my Signature. I'm still interested in touring, but certainly over the last few years I've found it's much easier to fly somewhere in Europe for short breaks. Mrs M does the planning and organises them for us both and I don't have to go through the usual prep, planning, booking, and packing than goes with maxi touring.

I've never subscribed to 'it's more about the journey than the destination' school of thought anyway, so either way works for me.
