Czech Invader Rally Trip - May 2022

Day 1

The first day is liable to be a long one! Mileage wise it is about 320 miles with about two-thirds of it on motorway/autobahn. One fly in the ointment is that to get from the coast to Germany means having to negotiate the Brussels ring-road. In my experience only getting through or past Antwerp is worse!

One off the A3 just inside Germany we play tag with the border before the first stop at the Bikers Ranch. Lunch. I hope. From then we are on a meandering route to try and get in as many "green" or "scenic" roads as shown on the Michelin Maps.

We have had an email from the hotel in Bad Ems to say that the reception in closed and we need to phone to get someone to open up for us. The restaurant/bar is closed but there are alternatives nearby. "On the Road" we always choose hotels with restaurants/bars either onsite or nearby to save riding the bikes and also so we can have a beer or two!!

So five days to go!

I suppose I had better start looking at what to take. With limited carrying capacity exacerbated by the problem with Europe is that you simply canty guarantee the weather, is what to wear on the bike!

Do I go full waterproof textiles? Or maybe Hood Kevlar jeans and lighter jacket with waterproof over gear?
