Talkback: Assen warning for British bikers

Stay at home with a couple of tins and watch it on TV

Please warn the British Bikers also not to camp on Vakantiepark Witterzomer. This campingsite sues the TT-track for years now, because of the noise of motorcycles. But every year they try to pretend they are a campingsite for motorcycle fans, just to make money quick. Please, do not stay on this campingsite, there are plenty of others just as far, good or cheap.

Every driver of a motorised land vehicle, excluding mopeds, must possess an unused and immediately available breathlyzer. A fine of 11 Euros will be charged to anyone not carrying the breathalyzer kit, but police have been told to start fining only from November 1st 2012.

The legal blood alcohol limit in France is 0.5 grams per litre.

We'll need a trailer to carry all the french rubbish soon

Right so ! Holland is flat and full of traffic.

Assen on a Friday night is brilliant fun...

The hi-viz law ain't law yet, by the way. And even if it was you don't need a hi-viz; the law only calls for 150 square cm of reflective material, which is naff all. If your jacket has reflective piping you're already covered.

So don't panic, get your arse over to Assen and enjoy the party.

You shouldn't need to be warned not to drink and ride, anyone that does is an idiot and deserves to be banned anyway....

Message from a Dutch guy, watch the speed on local roads and highway (A28) near the track. Also a mandatory point for this year is visibility of the licensplate. Complete article translated is here:

Portable breatalyser, really???? Where is France/Europe marching????

Get it right about the High-Viz requirement!

All that is needed is...
"Reflective Material
Starting 2013 (so next year), it will be mandatory to have Hi-Viz, reflective, material on your vest. The total size of the reflective material has to be 150 cm2. It does not have to be one piece; it can be several pieces, as long as the sum of the pieces is 150 cm2. So if you wear one or two Hi-Viz armbands, you're fine. There is already a requirement for reflective material on nteh rider (or pillion's) back which is not included in the 150 sq cm..."

So yes - a safety measure, but a come down from teh "all to wear high viz vests", you've got to agree!

Sorry - just spotted El Figaro's comment - beat me toit!

Drink driving warning.....drinking on the ferry is overpriced.
