AVOID BANK HOL­I­DAY BLUES

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Feature -

By­pass busy beaches

Grey sui­ci­dal slot-ma­chine sea­side towns, packed beaches reek­ing of day­old deep-fried dough­nut bat­ter and aban­doned don­key turds. Two traf­fic­jammed roads get you in, but there ain’t enough tar­mac in the world to get you out again fast enough. Don’t go there.

Avoid mo­tor­way mad­ness

Bank Hol­i­day mo­tor­ways are ba­si­cally gi­ant car parks for peo­ple who’ve lost the will to live, but it takes a spe­cial kind of ex­is­ten­tial de­spair to take a bike onto one. What were you think­ing? As for the Dart­ford Cross­ing on Mon­day evening…

Beauty spots get ugly

The Lakes, Dales and North Yorks Moors are great rides, but not on Bank Hol­i­days when they’re clogged with fat mo­torists doz­ing in crawl­ing car­a­van con­voys. Steer well clear.

Don’t worry about weather

The fore­cast might pre­dict sun­shine, but this is Bri­tain. Hit the road in your leathers and the heav­ens will open... guar­an­teed. Hello Bri­tish sum­mer, meet my wa­ter­proofs. But who cares?

Busy sea­side re­sorts re­sult in deck chair throw­ing... prob­a­bly

Packed mo­tor­ways must be avoided at all costs
