Oh and Bonnielad .. I hope you make sure that all the visitors you keep inviting have been de-loused and health checked before allowing them through the regional border controls. :D

Let's all meet up at MCN Peterborough have a few soft drinks and a bit of banter. :twisted: :twisted:
Priest, we've never met and probably never will, but I had you down as a Shandy man ( PS I'm teetotal, my medics limit me to sherry trifle these days😥)

We can see you. We just choose to ignore you as most of the time you're talking bollocks.

Jan, after your magical mystery tour in your own backyard I think it would be a good idea if your wife does come, otherwise you might end up in Edinburgh. :lol: :lol:
Ha ha, yes Priest. You don't know half the times i got lost on my MT. Once i wanted to visit the MTRC in Ypres, Belgium and i ended up lost somewhere in France.
On my ride back from another MTRC-tour i ended up in Belgium, but this times i wasn't supposed to go there...
And when i wanted to escort another MT-rider from my house to the port of Hook of Holland, i missed the complete city and my English mate had to point me the right direction!
That's why i like riding in formation so much, like we did on our 'Operation Marketgarden tour'
So, who wants to pick up me at my own house and escort me to the next MTRC-ride? :D

now we see that nothing changed after march, although Dad recently sent me a package from N.Ireland and he has noticed a distinct change with all of the various international shippers he uses. Basically, a 2.5kg package to Sweden cost half as much as a much heavier package that he normally posts out to my sis in australia. A lot more paperwork too i.e. more akin to that that he sends to Oz.

One thing worth a mention is Driving Licences .

When or indeed if Brexit happens depending on what gets agreed or not between UK and EU , you may need an International Driving Permit to ride or drive in the EU .
Easy enough to get , costs £5.50 over the counter at a post office , just take your UK licence and a passport photo with you and they issue one there and then, its a paper document .

There are 2 or 3 different types so make sure you get the correct one for the countries you visit. you may need more than one.
https://www.gov.uk/driving-abroad/inter ... ing-permit


I have just bought mine to cover France and much of Europe , might not need it but is valid for 2 years , and is £5.50 , so if that saves me from an impounded bike and a night in a French gendarmerie cell its a bargain :) .

Of course , nobody knows how Brexit will pan out yet ,even our Government , but I reckon it does no harm to have one alongside my normal licence .

Also, post Brexit check with your insurance to ensure covered in EU countries , you may need to buy extra cover.


Finally , anyone permanently living in an EU country outside UK and holding a UK driving licence , do check with your local country licencing people , it is a possibility you may need to arrange to exchange your UK licence for your host country , or face taking a driving test again there ! . Some official info here
