Foccin wankers councils and their approach to gritting!!
Had 2 weeks worth of cold weather and icy mornings.... not a bit of salt in sight. Today 10 degrees, beautiful sunshine..... low and behold at 6 o clock the fucking gritters are out!?
So now tomorrow the maim roads will be covered in dry slippery salt. It's almost like there is someone deliberately gunning for bikers 🤯🤯🤯

They cannot send the gritter drivers out in the ice. Its a H&S issue.

Have you used the wrong login ? :pokefun

Here is the science behind it.

On the right, you stick the heated grip to a plastic throttle tube. On the left, you stick it to the metal handle bar. The handlebar conducts the heat away from the grip whereas the plastic tube doesn't. Most people wont notice a difference but it is there.

Don't think you need to wear a high viz jacket all the time. Just after a breakdown. I've heard you need to be able to put it on before you get off the bike. So store it in a tank bag rather than topbox etc.
I know for cars you need to be able to put them on before getting out the car. For the bike, I keep mine under the seat wrapped around the spare bulbs to stop them rattling :pokefun

Post Brexit, it may all change but at the moment its simple.

Hi-viz (meant to be worn but nobody does) in case you break down
Spare bulbs
Headlamp deflector (I never use them)
GB sticker or euro number plate
Insurance certificate and log book and licence carried at all times
Helmet is meant to have hi-viz reflective stickers but ignore that as your a visitor
Gloves are a legal requirement now but most sensible people wear them
Breathalyser - Ignore the bullshite at halfords and on the ferry (they may still be a legal requirement until the law is repealed but the fine is €0.)

Biggest thing to learn is keep your eyes on stalks.
The French are very bike friendly but filtering is illegal (never need to do it as so little traffic where I am in Mayenne).
They ride on the wrong side of the road.
Roads joining from the right onto your main road have right of way (You have to give way even though there are no markings) unless the side road has a give way or stop sign.
30mph (50kmh) limit starts as soon as you pass the village/town limit sign
National speed limit starts (unless its signposted otherwise) as soon as you go through the village/town limit sign (Same as the entry sign but with a line through it)
National speed limit on single carriageway roads is 50mph (80kmh) since last summer and police do on the spot fines.
NSL on motorways is 110kmh (70mph ish) or 130kmh (80mph ish) depending on the signposts. On the 130kmh stretches, this automatically drops to 110kmh when its wet.

As of yesterday when I came back to the UK after a weekend away, fuel is about the same price as the UK. If you want to fill up over there Unleaded is "San Plomb 95"
