Doesn't sound too bad , watch the D road limits , zero tolerance according to a guy on another forum who lives there , he's just got a ticket for 81 in an 80 €45 fine

What are the speed traps like? I saw nothing at all, to be fair tho the D roads I was on were well country lanes, hardly a car...

What are the signs with like a WiFi signal on them? My French is pretty good but I couldn't read in time, didn't look radar trap-y, something about security....

I must admit despite the warnings here I ended doing at least 160kph on straight bits of rural D roads, I couldn't help it lol!!

On the A roads I generally stuck to the 130 or 110 limits.....

Seen a couple, not sure what they are. Have been good so far, couple of blasts through back roads between Omaha beach and the Chateau we stayed at last night. Proper twisty stuff.

Lots of waves and grins. These things do turn heads.

What are the french police like regarding modified exhausts , it's not Benny loud but it does turn heads from quite a way away

I did a prom for a mates daughter, did a 3 point turn on his drive , he said it makes the ground vibrate close up :D

I've never had any issues in a car or motorbikes with noise - other than advertising the fact you are coming :)

My current bike is an MV Agusta with open race pipes and way louder than any car I've ever heard on the road.
