"Biker" for me usually means motorbiking, though I also have a Marin mountain-bike...

My current motorbikes are a CBR600RR and a CBR600RW, both from Honda.

Previously I have owned: Honda VF750F, Yamaha FJ600, Suzuki GSX750EX, Yamaha FJ750, Yamaha XJ900, Kawasaki Z750 and I passed my riding test on my Kawasaki KH250.

Les Goudes, Marseille

Ride to the Restaurant at the End of the Universe

It’s an exaggeration but the short ride out to Cap Croisette from Marseille then Pointe Rouge and along the little road past the Calanques at the foot of the Massif de Marseilleveyre feels like you’re riding to the end of the world, leaving Marseille far behind although actually it’s just across the bay. Not a fast ride but it’s pretty in a grungy Marseille sort of way. The restaurant in Les Goudes, at the end of the road, is good too: feels like you’re in a bit of a time warp, but the food and service were fine for us.
No more blue sky, Stormy October has arrived.

En route from Marseille to the Alps

I'm riding light for a week on the mountain roads of the Alps. No laptop, although I do have my SLR camera but photos will have to wait till I'm back in Marseille..

I left Marseille for a long ride north via the Col de la Croix Haute (1179 m.) to Saint-Gervais under Mont Blanc. A bit of rain towards the end of the day which cleaned the Provence dust off my white leathers and boots but didn't soak me through.
