  • 2021 - Possible tripWith the Covid-19 pandemic causing problems across the globe for travellers, or at least for travellers with some common sense, it looks as though 2020 is "on hold"! I am looking at a quick trip to Czech to the local Posted by InvictaMoto in Czech and the East | Sep 15, 2020
  • Across the BorderActually only in to East Sussex. Finished work from home at 4pm. I was togged up and away about 4.20. No plan. Started the Yamaha app but when I got back it had stopped working, so I have no track of where Posted by InvictaMoto in Rocket Roadster - A Motorcycling Blog | Jun 22, 2020
  • Not Ride to Work DayJune 15th. International Ride to Work Day. * Great if you are working. * Great if you have a motorcycle. Not so great if due to the Covid-19 pandemic you are working from home and own a motorcycle. That's me folks. I worked on Posted by InvictaMoto in Rocket Roadster - A Motorcycling Blog | Jun 15, 2020
  • East Kent RideToday as it was sunny instead of a lie-in I would get out for a ride. But where to? In the end I did a circuit of East Kent. Home to Canterbury and then loop back home. With the M20 closed northbound Posted by InvictaMoto in Rocket Roadster - A Motorcycling Blog | Jun 12, 2020
  • Traces of War - KentDay 1 Today's post-lockdown ride was out on the Traces of War route I had planned. I wasn't going to do all of it as it was gone 4pm or so before I got going. I had amended the Posted by InvictaMoto in Rocket Roadster - A Motorcycling Blog | Jun 8, 2020
  • Wipers Day TripAfter a week of almost perfect biking weather it was a surprise to wake up and find that we had fog. To make sure we arrived at the Shuttle on time (if not early!) we got up early and were Posted by InvictaMoto in Belgium | Apr 9, 2007
  • PalingbeekPart 1 I was up bright and early. Or rather early. My shoulder was feeling fine and the best it has been for a week or so. Unfortunately Eurotunnel weren't as bright. On checking in I was informed that the 0850 was Posted by InvictaMoto in Belgium | Sep 17, 2018
  • Revisita España 2014Day One For this trip we were going to go on my 2013 Triumph Explorer 1200. The plan was to take the long ferry operated by Brittany Ferries from Poole across to Santander. As I left it a little Posted by InvictaMoto in España | Aug 30, 2014
  • MotoGP Le Mans 2019Day 1 This trip would be a slight reprise of the trip we did back in 2012. As usual the Shuttle was late leaving the UK end. Only 40 minutes so not long. Quiet if long no toll ride down. Made longer by Posted by InvictaMoto in France | May 20, 2019
  • John's FuneralMy old Friend John Storrie sadly passed away on February 8th. Another victim of lung cancer. It was his wish to have a bike escort to the church. So how could I refuse? Google maps worked it out to be 156 Posted by InvictaMoto in Rocket Roadster - A Motorcycling Blog | Mar 2, 2020
  • Bikers LoftDay 1 Packing Pepe (or Red Pepe to use his full name) doesn't take too long. The panniers aren't that big. Enough for the weekend for one person. I might have to invest in a sissy bar pack in future! The Posted by InvictaMoto in Belgium | Sep 28, 2015
  • Vimy 100The day started a little later for me as I had misread the booking for the Shuttle and set off to arrive at 0850 when I fact the train was at 0850 and I was supposed to be there before Posted by InvictaMoto in Belgium | Apr 9, 2017
  • Vimy 101I am writing this in the Eurotunnel terminal at Calais after a 90kms ride from Vimy in drizzle and the occasional proper rain. Presumably mild for the Canadians, stoically singing "Oh Canada" at the end of the ceremony in Posted by InvictaMoto in Belgium | Apr 9, 2018
  • Sinterklaastreffen 2013Up early and off to the Port of Dover. Arriving at 0730 it was a little disappointing to see no bikes there already. [center] [/ce Posted by InvictaMoto in Belgium | Dec 6, 2013
  • 2016 - Day SevenThe last day. Breakfast where we had plenty plus bags to make a packed lunch. And plenty of coffee. We were off in a slightly roundabout route back to the A3. I had to stop in one village as I Posted by InvictaMoto in Czech and the East | Aug 23, 2016
  • 2016 - Day FiveUp early and the weather had turned. From about 3am it had been raining. It was still raining as we had breakfast and then set off to get the free bus from just up the road from Lilka's house. This time Posted by InvictaMoto in Czech and the East | Aug 21, 2016
  • 2016 - Day FourSaturday morning and Lilka had made a huge breakfast. We ate that and then got ready and set off for the bus stop up the road. We had agreed that when we came back we would take Lilka, Jarek and Posted by InvictaMoto in Czech and the East | Aug 20, 2016
  • 2016 - Day TwoAfter a pretty good night's kip and breakfast, we set off southwards towards Heidelberg and the Castles Route. To describe it as a nightmare might be too extreme but the roads were packed and we made hardly any progress. In Posted by InvictaMoto in Czech and the East | Aug 18, 2016
  • 2016 - Day OneI was up early and shuffled the cars about to get the Rocket out of the garage. I had fitted the Saddlemen sissy-bar bag the night before and it was just a matter of popping my sponge bag in Posted by InvictaMoto in Czech and the East | Aug 17, 2016
  • Sinterklaastreffen 2019I was up at 6.50am and out before 7 30am. Red Pepé needed the [[https://notsealed.com/dbpower-600a-peak-18000mah-review-best-lithium-ion-jump-starter.html|dbPower unit]] to start as I had expected. I had had it on charge to make sure it was at 100%. Wh Posted by InvictaMoto in Belgium | Dec 1, 2019
  • The Return to PokharaWritten: February 8th, 2009 Riding back into lakeside Pokhara and seeing Fewa Tal lake and the Annapurnas felt like returning home. While many people only spend 1-2 days in Posted by NomadicOne in Thoughts of a Nomadic One | Jan 17, 2011
  • Day 1 of Knee-WatchWritten: February 8, 2009 I woke up early to catch the morning panoramas from the viewing tower. I also had a long ride to Naubise which included the other half of the windy Trib Posted by NomadicOne in Thoughts of a Nomadic One | Jan 2, 2011
