Honda VFR800 F1 X anniversary LCD problem.

As daft as it sounds a quality battery in service should read 12.8v in summer and 12.7v in cool weather a morning or two after before switching on. Your other readings are ok but I suspect your battery is not holding charge for long enough as in a few weeks. If you could take a battery reading at 3,000rpm with lights on hopefully reading 13.5v to 14.5v this will tell you that the charging system is ok. At the end of the day it`s all about amperage but test equipment is dear.

New French Laws

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.

MCN's Love Affair

I normally wouldn't agree with you as I'm a massive Rossi fan but in this instance you're bang on.Sam's win was top draw after the kind of weekend he had and when was the last time you seen such a winning margin in moto3? Then again how long will Leon Haslam continue to get top rides with only a handful of wins in christ knows how long he's been excusing his way ? He's been living off his old mans reputation since day one,I wonder what the excuse will be this year?

I think I can

Anyone else notice that VD Mark and Smith look a lot alike (beyond the Pata leathers)? Mark's Dutch (and of course English) are more comprehensible than whatever Smith is speaking.

Share advice and tips, routes and places to go and stay

I did a solo trip around France last year in July and it was great. Got down to the south coast and stopped on a campsite at Le Lavandou, very busy round there at that time but lots of campsites and should be quiet when you go. Its only 20 miles from St Tropez along a nice coast road so thats worth a trip. I also recommend Annecy in the Alps. A great campsite to stop at is Camping Champs Fleurie which is about 4 or 5 miles south of the town itself. All amenities near by and the manager Catherine is a cracking blond lass who speaks good English. I also recommend Amboise in the Loire Valley for a campsite which is vast and only a few minutes walk into town, and its cheap. Hope this helps.
