Hi everybody,
So, I'm on the road.

Departue on the 1srt of April, from atlantic coast.


Traversée de Paris....



In Bouillon, in Belgium


Bruxelles, so nice !


Thru the channel my birthday 60 years.... with a so nice weather



Thru London...



Ah, England, so beautiful, I love !
The narrow roads, the fog, the mysteries in the lands....













Oh, the breathtaking Scotland !

















The scottish cows, So wonderful.



The landscapes.... so nice, that it brings to tears !



Already at the top.... The beaches, as in the tropic !



And saturday, I had so much wind, three times fast on the ground !
I had to find a safe place as quick as possible !



What I founded in Durness, where I stayed also sunday.


That's the beginning, guys !
I made hundreds of nice photos, but I've no time to put it here.

I'll come from time to time, to give you news.

Here the route already rided !






And... this evening, I looked for the first time to my back tire, and...
Horror, the tire is almost total destroyed...
Then of course, I need to change it, imperious and urgent.
I'm in Fort William.
I guess the best place would be Glasgow, because I drive southly.
The tires :
The best one would be the MICHELIN PILOT ACTIV
130/70-17M/C(62S)

Is there somebody who knows where I can find it ?
Other possibility is a Bridgestone Battlax BT 45.
Is it known in England ?

Thanks a lot for your answers, guys, I need you !

Some months ago, I started a thread about the preparation of that trip.
To see here.

Yesterday, I wrote the first report since I'm on the road, but at the wrong place ! It's to see here.

If somebody could move it here, it would be nice.


So, I found hopefully a back tyre in Oban, with the help of the boss of Fort William camping, who I must congratulate here for his so king service, because I travel without any phone !

Then I hope to reach Oban with the bad tyre, which is very very used...
And then, we will be again able to ride !

Ciao ciao
