Find out here what's worth spending your money on and what to avoid like the plague
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.

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.

Thanks a lot guys.

My master plan is this: this summer I want to ride from SoCal to upstate NY on a motorcycle and back. I will buy the bike now and sell at the end of summer. I'm looking in the $1000-$3000 range. And as of now I think i will buy from a dealership which really limits my options but thats ok. You guys seem experienced and I also did a little research myself. I dont want any blunders. Being young and adaptable, I figure it doesnt so much matter what I ride across the country. I just want something to ride. So, thats the mindset I'm going to keep. So far its looking like 250cc street bikes are what's in store.

Again, thank you guys.

I got a fully serviced 2004 Ninja 250 with less than 10K miles from a dealer for under $2K. Not a great bike, but reliable with no issues other than being cold-blooded (which was the case when it was brand new). And reasonable mileage CBR250R's can be found for under $3K.

If you are lucky, you could find a used Honda CB500F/CBR500R/CB500X at dealer for your $3K budget, as they will be happy running at 75 mph down the freeway all day long.
