Torque Monsters on Tour in France
Another year, another trip to France! This time, with a much more major holiday coming up in October, we just managed to spare enough leave from work for five nights in Normandy and Brittany.

Janet was riding her trusty Hornet 900, as ever, and Andy was taking his third bike in as many years, the CB1300, to France. This time, as Janet's bike was by far the older one, it was used as the pack horse and, in a new variation on a theme, Janet led (and therefore navigated) for the whole tour.

Both Hondas were completely reliable and the toolkit and breakdown insurance were redundant - by far the best way!
