Reims, Grenoble, route Napoleon area, I think.. :084: my mates on it..   :001:

Great, route Napoleon starts at Grenoble, great ride down to Cannes. I always have a couple of days at Castellane to ride the gorge & climb the rock. The inner route of the gorge is also good, has to be ridden anti clockwise.

Sounds great, not an area I've been to so looking forward to it.  :001:

Quickest I've ever organised a Euro trip.. :087: from deciding not to to do the NC500 yesterday at 10am to now, all booked and paid for. All covid paperwork done, passenger location form filled in, Engagement Sur Honneur signed etc. etc.  :084:

Photos and report to follow on my return.  :028:

Still got mine. Had it for about 14 years now. Amazing bike - great all round package and a proper hooligan too. :007:

Please don't take this as a parameter, because Brazilian petrol has 27,5% ethanol, so it's completely different from the rest of the world. In here, I was able to do 385kms at 120km/h average with 17,5L. The range function was saying I'd have only 3kms more.

Wow, this ethanol is better than expected, not worse. That's approx. 240 miles at average 75mph in UK terms.

On 98/99 E5 I only got 220 miles eking it out at 50 top speed, average speed 34mph according to Tom-Tom statistics & that was showing zero. I think there's a couple of litres left at that to care for the pump.
