PostSubject: One day with the Team Ile de France CSGT   One day with the Team Ile de France CSGT I_icon_minitimeSun Mar 06, 2011 10:30 am

Yesterday I woke up early to join my friends of the Club-scootergt for a ride in the countryside. I know it's going to be a good day and for me it's an important day : test to join the the Fireflys team (those who secure the ride). I've been waiting this for long and I'm well prepared !

After 30 minutes (gps told 40 ??? my motor love when it's cold ! Wink ) I'm the second at the first meeting point :

The wheter is cold and shiny but misty, but shiny... and cold... and...

Fortunately the road is dry !

Despite my 365day equipement the tips of my fingers are numbed (and no I don't want to install muffs tongue )

Then come some other members of the team

Two SW 400 : one "old" but Jcostatised -works nearly as a 600 stock) and one new also called "white whale"...) With my 600 and the deauville NTV we can say "HONDAPOWAAA" Wink
One susuki freewind, one triumph speed triple R, and one BMW K1300R (clockwork orange)

Let's ride to the main meeting point : le café le Balto à Villers coterets !

Pilots are there, happy to be together

And our grand sachem Major Gilles77, retired from police forces and smiling as ever, has concocted a trip like only him has the secret !

The bikes :

As you can see there is only one survivor of the 125 era rescaped from the epidemy of motorcycle license that stroke the club, and 3 intruders with 3 wheels Wink (don't tell Gilles77 I said that, he rides one...)

Hopefully, SWs are still there to face the oranges thingummyjig swing

Let's ride... Sorry I got no pictures of the action, I was too busy with my Firefly mission... jocolor

First stop at L'Abbaye de Longpont:

Miamivince, firefly riding the old sw 400 costatised, Rebel 1.1, shining dragonfly on BMW K1300R (no need to wear a uniform, his chiefness enlights everything around him), and me, hopping they will let me in after this test !

Second stop at the dungeon of Septmonts :

Third stop the channel goes underground :

And after a nice trip with little roads, bends in wood, straight in fields, tricky pathes with holes, pack of dry mud and dust... we are arriving at our friends home who works in roadsigns and, as you can see, has a particular sense of humour...

boudioue,

That is a good write up with great pictures. I love to see pictures of Europe since the buildings are much older. My wife is Dutch and we plan to go there this November and are thinking of going to France, Switzerland, and Germany while there. I hope we get to see some things like in your pictures. Congrats on being accepted in the group and thanks again for the ride review and pictures.

Looks like you had a great trip! Thanks for posting all the pictures. It seems like you see more MP3s in one day than I see in a month around here...

Yes, in Paris you can see dozens of MP3 each day. In France to drive a motorcycle > 125cc you need a specific licence "A". But Piaggio has enlarged the tread of the first MP3 (which were like US MP3 500 that we cold "fuocco" here) and they put a foot break on it. it is now possible for owners of the "B" licence (to drive cars) to drive MP3 LT 250, 300 and 400...

"true" bikers usually scorn Mp3 owners but as you can see on pictures with many various bikes : in the club we are quite untolerant : narrow minded people are NOT welcome Wink

Boudioue:
l semble que vous avez eu un grand tour. Je vous remercie de partager avec nous. J'ai vraiment apprécié l'ensemble de vos photos. J'espère qu'un jour je peux faire un tour de moto à travers l'Europe et de voir la campagne. Prenez soin.

I do like reading these adventures cheers

When I was in Paris in August, the amount of scooters I saw was huge, my wife, Julie, go pretty fed up with me photographing the them rather than paying attention to the pretty sights.

No matter what corner you went round there was always a nice patisserie and a long line of parked scooters/bikes.

As we came out of Gare du Nord there was also a long line of Honda Goldwings which we thought were motorbike taxis Question





I think this Burgman was fitted with a skirt
