Riding north france/belgium
« on: February 17, 2018, 06:30:49 PM »
Hi all,
I am going to be riding through north france and stopping in de haan belgium where I am camping. Im not taking my tiger 800 but will be riding a triumph scrambler with sidecar. Does anyone have any general advice for riding france/belgium? iv heard that the french will pull out in front of you into your lane if they are on the right at a junction.

Have a look at this, it really isn't anything to worry about

Tinkering is what happens when you try something you dont quite know how to do, guided by whim, imagination, and curiosity.

Belgian m'ways are the worst roads I travel on, they're just idiots with the highest fatality rate in Europe. Keep well clear if you can't keep up the silly speeds they drive at. They just come steaming up behind you to force you into getting stuffed behind the waggons you're trying to pass, then won't let you out.

Just looked where you're going, shouldn't be any problem on that route.
