Billy and Storms Croatia report!

2018-08-16T18:59:57+00:00

And so it begins, Another bunch of eager Magellanites, ready to take the plungge down to the Balkans on their well oiled machines.   With every trip there's always a mixed bag of riders and machines and this one was no different!  From tried and tested zen tourers to a 2.3ltr monster of a Triumph Rocket, all of which were lined up ready for inspection and appreciation by all 22 riders.   Everyone arrived safely at stop 24 services ready for action and more importantly, ready to have a great trip!  A great blend of new and returning riders would make this [...]

Nick’s Second Italy trip report!

2018-08-16T16:44:16+00:00

Heatwave? Delays in the tunnel? Long delays in the tunnel??? Surely not, or so we thought when we met at 0700 at STOP24 however, there were already reports of queuing traffic on the motorway so we made some very quick introductions and joined the queue – QUEUE, on a motorcycle! After 2 hours of stop start (more stop than start), some pushing their bikes rather than burning out starter motors, we arrived at the kiosk to get our ticket to board only to be told of another 5 hours of delays. Meanwhile … two of our group who had joined [...]

Toby’s Picos report.

2018-08-16T16:41:22+00:00

Santander to Llanes, After an eventful start to the day and negotiating the various obstacles that the port company have in place, it was time to leave the port of Santander and navigated through the crowded streets. Easier said than done with 16 bikes in tow, and innovatively the group got split up, so it was a great opportunity to get to grips with the sat navs. We met at our first coffee stop and get some shade after riding through 25 degrees of glorious sunshine. The it was on to our rerouting point, showing us the way to the [...]

Nick’s Corsica tour report!

2018-08-16T19:01:49+00:00

I always get excited when he starts to check the tyre pressures, brake pads, tread, oil level, gives me a clean and he sticks on all those Magellan stickers – yep, we are off on one of my favourite trips and it is the start of the touring season. An early start for me as he wants to get past Lyon before the morning traffic – we are staying in Reims tonight which is where we usually stop over but, it is certainly colder this year than last year! Tucked up safely for the night in the underground car park [...]

Nick’s first Italy trip!

2018-08-16T16:25:40+00:00

June 2018 Trip report Stop 24 at an ungodly hour on a Saturday morning – most of us had stayed locally however Andy had got up and driven from Lincoln leaving at 0200 that morning – and we still had 200 odd miles to cover in France! 19 people (including me – the Magellan guide) and 16 bikes – fortunately due to the virtues of Facebook most were already acquainted and within the group as a whole there were already groups of friends who would be riding together. Quick introductions – so many faces to put to names for every [...]

Ben’s Austria and Switzerland report!

2018-08-16T18:53:57+00:00

MAGELLAN AUSTRIA AND SWITZERLAND 2018 TRIP REPORT As always, meeting up with a group of ten strangers with the intention of going on an 11 day bike trip together brings with it a mixture of excitement and uncertainty. A 7am start at our usual meeting point of the Stop24 services on the M20 sees us heading for the Channel Tunnel in a whirlwind of names, faces and booking references! Once through the check-in process and safely aboard our train there’s a half hour lull as we chug under the English Channel and this gives us a chance to start getting [...]

Billy’s Morocco tour report!

2018-06-07T14:51:34+00:00

MOROCCO April 2018 Trip Report. This years first outing to Morocco was a real mixed bag! We had Rain, Sleet, Snow and occasional winds to contend with.   More importantly though, we had a great bunch of bikers who had the guts and determination to push past those first 4 days and reach the 34 degrees of the Sahara! Outskirts of Madrid! After we all met up at the ferry terminal in Plymouth, we boarded the ferry that would gently carry us from good old Britain to the northern port town of Santander in Spain.   Once aboard the hulking [...]
