Some time ago (about six years) I promised the editor of Nacelle magazine that I would put pen to paper and try and to write an article about touring the great European continent by motorcycle. I’m no expert but I’ve done it a couple of times and made mistakes that really are quite easy to avoid. The main thing to remember is you’re over there to have fun, and if you choose the right road and the right places to stay it becomes just that, pure unadulterated fun.

In those intervening years I’ve read quite a few articles in Nacelle of other peoples adventures “over the water” and can identify strongly with these “holiday snap shots” But where do you start if you’ve never done anything like this before?
