    I have already posted it in the Europe forum but thought that I would duplicate here if anybody from this side of the pond wants to stay in France for a while in this great little house!

    Vacation House for rent by the week in France in Lafayette's country

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Here is what we are offering for your enjoyment, a vacation house in the french country side.
    So why it is here, just because it is one of the best place in France to ride a motorcycle! This is the part of France that you want to see where people are really nice and the landscape is amazing.
    The region of Brioude is well known in France for its offroad riding as it is where was organized the first enduro in France. The region has hosted also the ISDE (six days) and numerous french championship!
    Last year when I was there fixing it up, I got to go riding quite a bit and here are a few pictures to make you want to come. As usual, if you have a bigger bike, you will have to know your limits! There is a garage on site that could be used for the bikes or to park a trailer.

    On a very serious note, off road riding there like a lot of places in Europe is under a lot of pressure therefore it is my hope that people who will come will do their best to be respectful and keep this riding heaven open for our pleasure.

    Hey I like this idea. Is there a place near to rent bikes, to your knowledge?

    Thanks for posting I have this site in my book of places of interest.

    Thanks

    Not that I know of, I know plenty of people to show you around but I am unaware of a place to rent bikes. I would start by the motorcycle dealer in Langeac though, great guy and only 10 km away.

    In the future it is my plan to have a couple of bikes sitting in the garage if anybody is interested...

    WEC final round in St Flour September 12th and 13th takes place only 56 km (35 miles ) from the house.... Easy to get to in less than an hour, and I am sure that some of the test will be closer...

    What better way to spend a week of vacation, spectate the last round of the world enduro championship and then ride the rest of the week on similar trails and terrain!:pynd

    Jean Luc, you need to put together a package for the WEC. Round up some bikes for us and take group of Yanks over and show us the ropes.

    How do you like Kansas?

    As far as the WEC, I am not sure where it is going to be in France this year, nevertheless the riding area is pretty awesome no matter what!

    Looks like Western OK TAT territory. We got lucky last year and it rained when we went through there, wet sand = big fun.

    Day before was major hot. It felt like a hair dryer was in your face.

    You should drop down to I-35 and pick up the TAT going west out of OK. It would be fun on that big ol 9XX of yours. NM is cool, although you are not in it very long. You could go to Trinidad or Salida and slab it back home easily.

    You know the KTM Rally is in Moab this year. You could come over to that as well.

    That is a pretty good idea, I have my 950 in the shop in Trinidad, maybe I can retrace the TAT back for a little while until I have to come back up North. Just need to find somebody to give me a ride there. :deal
