*Legal Riding Abroad*
For Speed Limits *CLICK HERE*
We have contacted every european country to clarify the regulations we as Motorcyclists need to abide by, some recent instancies have necessitated this.
A legal requirement in the vast majority, and the accepted norm when travelling abroad is to carry you License, MOT, Insurance, Log book (V5) and passpport with you at all times. Failure to produce them can result in your bike being seized as you cannot prove ownership.
Some countries have yet to reply but their information will be added as we receive it:
FRANCE: From July 1st 2012 you must carry two approved breathalysers. These must carry the French NF symbol and can be obtained at ferry ports and terminals.
The French have tightened up on speeding and are increasingly using speed cameras. They are also removing signs that warn of speed cameras!
SWITZERLAND - Sat Nav systems that warn of speed camera's/radar traps are illegal. For more info 'CLICK HERE'.
Also, you only have to pay the 'Vignette' (Road tax) if you are using the motorways. However, if you do ride on a motorway without one and get caught it is an on the spot fine of CHF 100 (£50) plus the cost of the Vignette @ £18.
SPAIN: Two-way intercoms between bikes are illegal
