VVe rode from Spain to Hungry and it felt like in biker''s paradise. No highway patrol, passing is permitted almost everywhere (especially in France), lain splinting... etc. Yeah, open lands of Russia have lot's of freedom, but everything is in comparison :)
The French transport minister tried to institute some very anti-bike measures but I understand there were widespread protests by bikers and these have been quietly postponed and will probably disappear. Not sure if the requirement to carry spare headlight bulbs met the same fate. Hoo-ray for our French moto-brethren!!
