Hi guys,
Just like to say as a Brit living in France and watching the BBC News.
I am thinking of anyone of you,your friends and family,living in the path of Hurricane Sandy.
Please be careful and I hope it calms and passes as quietly with as little damage as possible.
Take care and good luck.

thanks for the well wishes, it's moving inland towards us now
getting progressively more nasty outside but I'm hoping it doesn't unleash the full potential of the storm on us

Thanks for that Baldeagle!! I live in West Virginia and we are supposed to get heavy snow here (Beckley) and possibly high winds. The big fear here is losing power from trees falling on the power lines. Then you have to heat the house by alternate means until the repairs are made.. The east coast will get the worst of it I suppose.
I rode thru France on a swapped ST1300 in 2010 and thoroughly enjoyed it. Got to do a WW II tour around Normandy.

You are welcome guys,keep your heads down if you can!!
OG the riding is the biggest reason I moved to France,quiet roads,drivers more aware of bikers,go on the verge to let you pass.
Sadly they are getting more and more speed cameras now,one of Sarko's ideas to get more revenue in I guess.
Have been here permanently for close to 10 years and the V is the bike best suited to the roads near here.I am in the South West near to Cognac which is convenient ha ha.
Spent some time 2 years ago doing the WW1 stuff around Verdun,fascinating but very,very sad.
Good luck for the coming days.

Hey all you guys and gals on the East Coast. Stay safe, keep your heads down and the Versys tucked away..! Hope it passes with minimal damage and injuries. The UK is watching and wishing you well.
