Technical and tyres
pretty easy once the petrol tank is off and empty, turn it upside down and there will be a circular plate usually with a several bolts around it, undo the bolts carefully, the float lives in that hole. bit of a fiddle manipulating it out ,but easy enough a job to do.

Touring & travel
Depending how far into France you want to travel , there is a place called Oradour Sur Glane not far from Limoges which is well worth a visit .
Not a battlefield but a small village that was the scene of the worst attrocities committed by the SS on French soil. After the war they kept the village as a memorial and it is still untouched to this day, 70 years on.
Out of season , most hotels in France have rooms available and are reasonably priced .
If you want to get somewhere fast use the motorways although you will have to pay ; otherwise use the country roads but you won't get anywhere in a hurry.
I decrease my speed overall in the wet. If there are white lines/arrows on entry or through corner, I tend not to apply too much brakes or throttle harshly to avoid a squeekey bum moment. In the dry, I go at normal corner entry speed reguardless of whether there's road markings, have never had issues with riding over them. Its gravel/chuckies/crap/bumps on the road you need to worry about.
