Riding Buddy For 2010

Hi,
I am new to this touring stuff. I am planning a trip to Europe, like to go to poland and some of the eastern counties. I live in Elgin on the moray coast of scotland, and would like to find some people in the area who would be intrested, so we can do ride outs and get the bikes ready for the summer trip. I will be riding an Honda XR400.
My email is
allanawilson@hotmail.com

If you fancy this, or some other ride outs in my area, get in touch..

Cheers
Allan

well a mate of mine from Glouster/UK and I from Germany are doing our 3rd trip to Scandinavia next year in May/June.

May mate used to ride his XR250, for next year he takes a XR650L which he just bought a few month ago, I will take my old trusty LC4 640 again.

the best way to hit the north/eastern continent would be Harwich/UK to Esbjerg in Denmark.... (may Hull/UK in your case coming from Scotland) well we are going for two weeks to Sweden before my mate has to go back for work, I on the other hand will join up with another German guy after that mid June in south Sweden, carrying on to ride further to see the Baltic countries for some more weeks.... riding back down to Poland, Berlin, Duesseldorf on country lanes only.

so in case you are around at mid May to end June... well make up your mind.

by the way... we travel very lightweight with soft bags like 65Lt to 75Lt rucksacks with no more than 25Kg on weight strapped on to the parcel carrier, wild camping where possible, travelling speed around 30mph to 65mph and no more than 200miles a day.

Hi mate, I’m from Lewis and do a bit of touring.
Have been to Belgium, France, Spain, Andorra, Gibraltar, Portugal in 2007.
Went to Holland, Germany, Poland, Slovakia, Czech Rep. in 2008, and Holland, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland last year

We are heading for Estonia via Holland, Northern Germany, Poland .ect. in June/July 2010.
I ride a ZZR 1100, my brother has a Blackbird and the third member of our crew rides a Fazer 600.
There are few requirements they are that you are a competent rider with a full license, continental experience not necessary

My UK base is Prestyn in Wales, but that is immaterial. I have a CB400T, a step up from the 200twin I went, 2 up, to Italy on last year. Would you consider doing a circle route with the far end being Istanbul (I really want to be able to brag that I have stepped on Asia)? And back through greece and the top of Italy?
