Moose1050: I haven't got any experience with the RC3, but my two RC2s have both loosened up and gotten softer over time. It's been a while, so I don't recall how long they took, but I don't think it...

My understanding is that chip and PIN is the accepted standard in Europe, and chip and signature systems are less common, particularly among the unmanned systems like 24 hour gas stations. Give me 6...

Cool, thanks for the thoughts. I had the impression paying in advance wasn't an option, so that's good to know.

Camping Card International?

In doing some reading for my upcoming trip to Europe, where I'm planning to use campgrounds a lot of the time, I came across a reference to the Camping Card International. This is a card which...

Thanks, I'm really looking forward to it! 6 weeks and at least 8 countries, probably more, with friends in most of them.

Awesome, thanks for mentioning that! If Andrews decides they hate me for some reason, I'll probably do the Travelex. I do wonder how they're making money on that though. Must be exchange fees.

Impromptu luggage?

I'm plotting a trip through Europe this summer, and one of my options is to buy a used bike there and sell it at the end of the trip. I'd most likely aim for an SV650, but I've never owned one, so I...

I will say an argument for buying a new bike is that you can break it in well -- I started my N250 career on a 2001 I bought used. It was a fine bike, and saw me through plenty of riding. Then I...
