Hello & Bonjour

#1 Post by M620 » Thu Nov 29, 2018 12:50 pm

Hi just a brief introduction, currently retired and splitting my time between South Buckinghamshire & Base Normandy France.
Passed my bike test in 1969, it was a lot easier then and been riding bikes ever since.
Have owned and collected a very varied range of bikes over the years, some way too quick for me! So now I mainly use a little Ducati (hence the user name).

Between Alençon & Le Mans in a little village in the Alpes Mancelles. A very popular stop for bikers in the summer
