2400 miles England to Andorra

Beitrag von Godspeed »

I had a couple of weeks off work and decided it would be good to head off to find some sunshine and adventure in Andorra so on Thursday the 23rd I made the long ride from Bristol to Folkestone on the Innova.
I caught the Chunnel across to Calais, always a pleasure and easy journey. I love it that if you do arrive early on a bike that they will quite often offer you an earlier crossing. Once in Calais I just had a 20 mile trip to find my hotel.
I’m quite a meticulous planner and had a route all set up and various stop off points but the benefit of travelling on your own is you can change your plans as and when you fancy. So I headed down south stopping at Senlis, Avallon, Clermont-Ferrand and then Avignon. From there I took a hard right and headed across to Carcassonne and then over the border into Andorra.
I had planned to ride the Smugglers trail while there and got a few shocked looks from the ‘adventure’ bike riders on their T700s that a Brit had ridden all the way down here on a 125 and had completed the trail as well.
From there I headed across the Pyrenees to Lourdes and started heading back up via Bergerac, Chinon, and Mont St Michel, then across to Fecamp, Calais and back home.
The Innova performed faultlessly. It was light enough on the trails, kept up speed on the 80kmph backroads, and carried myself and all my luggage with ease.
I’ve recently fitted (cobbled) the Givi wingracks to the sides so took hard luggage this trip. A much better idea when travelling solo as you can visit shops/castles and feel pretty comfortable that your gear is safe.
I ended up riding 2400 miles, which cost £101 in petrol. You can’t get adventures cheaper than that 😂
Some of the highlights were the Carcassonne walls at night, the balcony roads around Avignon, and the very quiet roads on the continent.

Right. Where to next year 😉

Hey Godspeed,
Congratulations, well done!

"Right. Where to next year"?

Try the Nordkapp. The Honda will do it!
All the best.

Thanx for story and pics.

Next year? Collecting walls???
I hope, i will see Avila next Octobre.
With Innova or SuperCup.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ávila,_Spain

Resting in Avila, I will buy petrol
from Avia, named Innova.
The best energy for Innos, cause it
gives them extra-horsepowers !!!

Den jährlichen Flug über den Indik (13 to. CO2) kann man weder
mit Eigenstrom-Auto noch mit Nullenergie-Haus kompensieren !!!

A man, his plan and his little Honda.
The little Honda Cubs can take you almost anywhere as long as the dirt roads are dry.
Great tour, thanks for the pictures.
And don't forget the astonished faces of the tough bikers with their off-road motorcycles.
It's not the motorcycle, it's always the rider.

Thanks,
It's nice to see your pictures and I'm looking forward to reading more reports (i hope) next year.

By the way, you can also use ready-made and very stable add-on parts for your Wingrack 2 system to mount the topcase directly.
If you want givi sells also indicators around the suitcase.

Here are three pictures from an Inno with the identical Wingrack 1 system + add-ons.
