Where are all the Brits and Irish ? Need info for tour !

Hi guys,

Between September 24th and Oktober 1st I'm planning to do a bike trip together with my wife on her Monster.

We will get into England through the Chunnel.

My plan was to go through South England into Wales, take a ferry to Ireland and ride around the country to Belfast. Take a ferry to the Isle Of Man and back into England and down to Belgium again.

Any of you guys that can point me in the right direction ? The nicest roads to take ? I have a serious problem with highways, like most of you guys, so spare me on those ones. Only thing I care about is twisties and scenery !

Cheers mates !

KS.

Once over, give us a shout fella, although none of the roads in England compare with the roads around Cochem... some of them in Wales are half decent.

I just don't feel for Germans right now. I'm in need of a healthy dose of British and Irish pub grub and bevvies

Happy to help if I can. I only really know Southern England and the Home Counties intimately, but have a think about where you wanna stop over as well as what roads might be good. Also, good roads on one day of the week might be bad on another.

Coming from the chunnel towards Wales might take you across Kent, Sussex, Surrey, etc, and I could advice a few of the nicer roads along that route, most notably picking up the A272 from Haywards Heath as far as Winchester.

Apart from that, you'll get the best advice from weeksy's recommended website, as it's are full of proper bike nerds who can probably tell you what mileage per gallon to take into account, and will probably come round your house in Belgium to help you install a ScottOiler to maximise chain life. They may even have a few spreadsheets on what gear rations give the best mpg at certain cruising speeds.

Sounds great !

However, don't expect a high tempo. My wife has started riding motorcycles just a couple of weeks ago

Also, I won't be taking the Smart but the Multi1200 instead.
Perfect for the long hauls, lot's of bagage space and a real hooligan bike all in one
