Baglux Seat

NEW for this YEAR

After a year with a standard BMW seat I thought that Gloria and I deserved greater comfort.

Bag Lux came to the rescue and offered to gel up and recover the standard item. I am yet to cover any long distance but the Balkan Adventure tour should prove the point. I'll let you know.

Welcome to Motorcycle Sport & Leisure Tours

With 24 years experience of organising motorcycle tours on the Continent, we are the unchallenged tour professionals.

We all love riding our bikes, but not everyone enjoys the complicated logistics involved with organising a motorcycle holiday overseas: There are hotels to book, routes to plan and ferry tickets to buy. And if you’ve never ridden abroad before, the thought of riding on unfamiliar roads can be daunting too. That’s where MSL Tours come in. Quite simply, we take all the hassle out of organising your motorcycle holiday. We book the hotels and ferry tickets; we work out the most enjoyable routes and show you the best restaurants (and from experience, we know where those are). All you need to do is turn up, ride your bike and enjoy yourself!

There’s something for everyone this year, from experienced tourers to riders looking at their first trip abroad. Whether you want the challenge of a high mileage adventure tour or a gastronomic feast in Spain or a just a relaxed weekend in northern France, MSL Tours has the answers.

We are delighted to welcome the partnership with Edelweiss Bike Tours of Austria. Edelweiss offer forty-two destinations World Wide in a one hundred page brochure, a sample of which are displayed in the following pages. A detailed brochure of all Edelweiss tours can be ordered from MSL Tours or requested direct from worldtours@edelweissbike.com telephone call 0043 5264 5690.

See you on the road!

Riding abroad –  Important information

The emergency telephone number for all of Europe is 112 - for fire, medical and police. Ask for an English speaking assistant.

Breakdowns on motorways – In the first instance use emergency motorway phones (particularly in France). Assistance will get you off the motorway and take you to a garage, wher you can call your own breakdown assistance. This costs €180, which you can claim back from your breakdown company.

Speed Limits – We have noticed that generally the French have slowed down and keep close to the speed limits. Recent experiences in France indicate that they are tightening up on speeding. For instance, someone recently pulled over after overtaking a truck in a 90kph limit, who then continued to maintain the overtaking speed until being pulled at 130kph, was given an on the spot fine of €137 and levied a further €85 on return to UK.

This in itself is not the end of the world - but it made a hole in the beers vouchers - the sting came when the drivers license was taken and a 3mth ban of driving in France slapped on.

In this instance there were two drivers in the car, but if you are on a bike you would be left standing on the side of the road.

You have been warned, its no joke.


NEW boots for this Year

This year we are trying the TCX Tour all weather CE approved Gortex boots.

These are a mix of Gortex and leather with a fully moulded rubber sole providing a totally waterproof boot so the manufactures say! we shall find out. The boot has a sturdy shin protector and flexible textile panels to make them comfortable for walking. There is a neat tag to grab hold of to pull the zipper up - a nice touch when you have cold fingers. The zipped and gusseted flap over fits snug round the calf held in place by strong Velcro running the length of the boot.

Sizes 41 -47

Price £199.99 less 10% with a MSL Tours voucher available from JW Groombridges Motorcycles see www.jwg.co.uk
