Re: Taking your motorcycle to Europe in Van or Trailer

I used to export vintage bikes once, it was far easier and less hassle before we were fully into the EU [or common market as it was then].
One form to carry them across france, and get paper work stamped in and out.
turn up at Dover, choice of three ferries, pick one and drive onto boat.
now its as bad as airlines, two hours in advance, interogations.
If you turn up at eurotunnel folkstone without prior notice or booking they won't let you pay cash for your ticket, got to be cards so they can check you out.

Eurostar london a load of hassle last time I went over; coming back form Paris I was just waved onto train.

Good luck to all you cross channel chaps this year, all down to political pique, shaame because I have had many good times over there.

[' demand a negative PCR test at least 36 hours before touching down in France..']

I don't think my M20 will go fast enough to jump the channel so 'touching down' in France is out of the question unless it's thrown out the back of a Herculese....:laughing: Ian

Hello Charlie. It would be great to see some photos of your event at Reading, if you can manage it.
