Advanced Motorcycle Tour - Workshop to Normandy 2008

I have provisionally booked some accommodation in Normandy for a weekend away from Friday 25th April to Monday 28th April 2008 for an advanced motorcycle training workshop. My initial thoughts are spend 2 days riding and one day looking at the WW2 sites. I am hoping to get 2 more experienced trainers, so we will have 3 video bikes, and then we can use the footage for a debrief each night using the wide screen projector at the b and b. I am hoping to travel out on Britany Ferries, Portsmouth to Cherbourg and return. It is in the early stages of planning and I am looking at taking at least 10 bikes across. If you are interested, please contact me. Will update we I know a little more, costs etc........

Normandy Tour 2007

Well I am back after a fantastic 5 day tour of Normandy. We went out on Monday 10th September on LD Lines ferry from Newhaven, to Le Harve. It was a 5 hour crossing, but we only had a one hour journey to our bed and breakfast, once in France. It only cost £51.50 return and we were going back to Portsmouth. The ferry crossing gave us a break as we had travelled down from Stoke on Trent via the M6, M42, M40, M25 and M23. I know the tunnel woud have been cheaper, but the mileage too great. Will do another entry soon, but I am already planning a weekend in April 2008.....Will keep you posted
