Firstly, welcome to the Touring section.

We're aiming to keep this section as factual and immediately useful as possible. This means we're trying to keep it on-topic and focussed on Touring.

Please discuss vague touring ideas or experiences in the General forum.

Please organise the final touches to any public rideouts / tours in the Visordown Days Out section.

This section has been created so people can ask for direct advice.

Typical examples of threads that will be at home here, are:


  • Which hotel do you recommend I stay at around the Nurburgring

  • Belgium: What roads do I need to ride?

  • What do I need to pack for a 3 day tour of Wales?


Please do not be surprised if your thread is moved to the General forum is it is deemed off-topic. Also, if you consistently post off-topic material, you'll be blocked from using the Touring forum.

Thanks.

I am planning a month-long trip of east europe (within the new EU boundaries) to take in some of the former Yugoslavian countries. I have bought a Triumph Tiger 955i for the task.

 Any pointers on the best places to visit and stay would be helpfull. Does anyone have opinions on the suitability the Tiger? 

Also; I need a set of panniers for the trip; do you have any you wish to sell me?

Cheers

Great website with lots of interesting info.

I enjoy touring on my Harley Davidson Road King Classic and keep a record of routes, hotels, restaurants, general costs etc on my blog www.theartofmotorcycletouring.blogspot.com

I try to keep it updated, currently there are details of a recent five day trip to the Los Angeles/Mojave area on a rented Softail Heritage. I'm also entering details of a trip from the UK, through France to the Costa Blanca and return via Zaragosa and Bilbao. In two weeks, I'll be trying to do "live" blogs on a circular trip to The Netherlands and Belguim via Harwich and return Calais.

Hope it might be of help to other bikers planning tours!

Hi Peeps, i'm heading to france, belgium and germany for 5 days in august and i'm considering wearing a helmet cam for the duration. What i'd like to know is:

1: whats the best value for money camera out there ?

2: who's used one before and what were your experiences doing this ?

Oh yes..very on topic that!...I,m all for robbing the Bankers of their ill gotten gains ..

but from the subtlety involved here I would say this is data trawling for people likely to be involved in card "crime"...

Hi, I just signed up after spending over an hour on Visordown --- GREAT SITE!

If you're looking for touring info in the Western US (California, Nevada, Arizona, Western Colorado, and Utah), take a look at my ride videos or send me a PM ... I've ridden just about every back road in these areas during the past 7+ years.
