ill setup a scenic ride in then... is gonna take 4-5 hours tho if we completely avoid motorways. (not including the ritual tabacco burnings)
bought new tomtom map... entire Europe in one map, easier to plan routes, no swapping and looking for conenctions :/

when you buy TomTom make ABSO sure you get the ALL IN ONE MAP jobby ! i didnt know... 50euro down the drain

By my reckoning that'll mean we won't be getting there until 20:00hrs ish. Could we plan an escape route just in case time/fatigue gets the better of us.

so what time will you guys arrive here? approx...



current route from my place to RTT07 base is 300km 4-5 hours riding
90km of motorway down to Sankt Vith (.be),
then off motorway into Luxembourg for cheap booze/cigarettes and fuel near Weiswampach
form there we go east into germany, no more motorways.

if we're really late or weather is shite we can get on the motorway A48 at Ulmen or Mehren towards Koblenz.
that onramp is about 80-90km from Weiswampach.

or we could do it the otherway around:
less motorway at the start and get on the motorway for the last stretch, as stated above ^

if you insist on less motorway and more belgian ardens roads its gonna get late before we get in as bondy pointed out.


ive added 2 zips :
the .axe file is for MicroSoft AutoRoute
other (RTT07####.zip) is a TomTom itn file (drop it in yer itn folder and open with routeplanner)

the convertor doesnt have the option to create a Garmin file. sorry

depends how fruity you are feeling, i've done Tongeren to Dunkerque (not Zeebrugge tongue.gif ) in 2hours but that was going some
expect 2.5to 3 hours with a quick lunch stop

the first option gets my vote, that ways its easier to make up the time at the end if we are running late

Is it true you always wear it under your helmet, or was that just a wicked rumour?
