On my way back from a trip in Europe. On the trip, My fiance booked us a day tour out of PARIS into the country and to King Henry's manor in Verseilles on a bike. We got to keep the bike for the following day if we wanted as part of the deal. Now I say bike, I should man up and say ok, well its a scooter (not sure if it classifies as a bike, other then it has 2 wheels), and to make it worse a vesper..... A massive change from my Triumph Thunderbird. The tour was good a laugh, and if you are in paris, would recommend it to people (I will link up when i get home and find the address). The tour leader was good fun to ride with, although we did do it at very very casual pace. Not that the vesper with 2 people on it, could handle much more then that. One of the highlights when the tiny tiny US-Asian girl wanted to ride the vesper and her boyfriend ride B*tch. The tour guide wasn't too sure and try to convince her maybe not a good idea - she wouldnt listen. He gave her his bike (a little bit more shit) to see if she could hold herself. She got about 15metres down the road, hit the gutter and dropped it while still grabbing the accellerator.. one of those had to be there moments but damn it was funny. I am normally ATGATT... but only got a helment, so i said a little prayer, and off we went. I was a little hesitant to keep the bike the next day. Navigating Paris and its motorists, riding on the other side of the road (I was soo pariniod about entering the roundabout the wrong way).... In the end I thought i'd give it a little go, and see how i go... Can I say... in the complete Chaos that is Paris... i had soo much fun.... it seems like organised chaos, even more so then when i was thailand. Half the roads dont have lane markings, so you have 2-3-4 cars/bikes wide down the roads... bikes all fliter... and boy do the cars get a bollocking if they dont leave room for them to filter (we saw a few riders hit the roof of cars that blocked them).... And cars delay their take off, so all the bikes go first .... In Paris, while it was complete chaos, it seemed that drivers were sooo much more aware of riders... I didnt really feel scared once I got out there.. i was pretty confident... and as is always the way... you make your move with confidence and people give you the room. So if you are in Paris - give it a go.... Once i get home and get some pics I will post them up.... Anyone else ridden in Paris ? or other crazy cities ? did you enjoy or simply sh!te yourself the wholetime ? I'd totally do it again.
