Technical and tyres
UPDATE! Still got the same bike and the mileage is now at 35,500 miles. Oil use has settled to a steady 250ml's per 6000 mile oil and filter changes. Same oil as always: Castrol 10-30 Power 1 GPS, semi synthetic. The bike uses no oil whatsoever for the first 2000 miles after fresh oil/filter then needs a splash now and then. So if your doing 4000 service intervals as Honda recommends, 125ml's i would say. The bike is used at quite high revs because its very low geared, so it does get revved up to 10,000revs although the red-line is 13000. Still very happy with the bike after nearly 6 years ownership and was a better bike after 20,000miles like all my previous Fireblades over 20 years and 156,000 miles on 5 bikes. They are not fully run-in until that mileage is reached.
The French being French will just ignore any law they don't like and if the authorities start clamping down , they'll take to the streets and bring the country to a standstill as they've done before.
Unlike most countries , when French bikers protest , they do it properly .............
The FFMC (our equivalent to MAG) are are quite a powerful group who have been known to bring every major city in France to a standstill at the same time. Got caught up in one in Marseille once - very impressive.
The chances of being pulled in France by the police are slim if you're on British plates unless you're doing something really stupid. They can't be arsed with the paperwork.
