........in a car!!!!!!!!

Hi all, im back from my very eventful trip to the south of France, my RF however is still there. Alternator packed up near Montpellier (although reading inchi55's problem it could be that) causing a few probs but luckily id bought european breakdown cover before i left, they paid for hire cars and will recover the bike, takes 10-12 working days though!!

Other than that i had 2 good days playing in the Alps, some awesome roads and amazing views.

Couple of pics while im here, well, one!

Here's a link to photobucket that hopefully works,
Think ive done it right.............

We all had a good time and with the bike breaking down we stayed in Orange which we didnt plan but its a really nice place so it worked out ok.

The bad luck started on wednesday, got on the bike in the morning with the luggage on for the first time in 2 days, lent it over to put up the stand but went a little too far and dropped it, the pannier and indicator took most of it and it didnt scratch the fairing, then we lost Ian and Anna when we turned off a motorway and they didnt, that motorway was closed further down because of a bad accident, then the bike broke down, got a hire car thursday afternoon, ran out of diesel in that on friday 1.6KM from a garage, so i hitched a lift with a french family to the fuel station, got back and had to figure out how to prime the diesel pump on a 307, then this morning Ian came of his bike turning into Dover castle, all in all an eventful holiday!!

:mrgreen:
