give me a call when you are closer to going ( say 3 months warning)

Also could you give me an idea of your riding style and what bike you will be using.

regards

Let me get this Autumn one out the way. And I could be interested. Date's are a good think even if it is a round about date's in what month. Spring and Autumn are good time's. As it is out of season and still warm to hot. And a mid week crossing is half price to a week end.

I have been down to the pyrenees a few times, also to Nice. have to say Nice/antbidess into N Italy far too crowded for my liking.

Currently riding an Enfield, but that might change.
