I had no breathalysers, you only have one road from the tunnel to Belgium, just rag it, its a good road, no reflective anything no hi viz, just a hoodie and never got stopped
Id worry far more about the fucking potholes on the motorways, sorry outdated shite riddled with potholes n shit tarmac roads, theres a reason dutch and germans move to Belgium, the taxes are so much cheaper, and why is that?
cost they don't spend any on anything to do with roads, haven't checked the route yet but my intruder only just made it to the first fuel stop in Belgium so make sure ya fully load this side and there anint that much in price either.
So fuck the French/ Belgian authorities and relax, your more likely to get pulled here, I do tunnel to Holland and germany regular n never get tugged, stopped for a look at the bike a few times but never done

As Alex says, don't worry about breathalysers, hi-viz, you don't need them and we were told by people we stayed with in France the reflector strips on your helmet (ooh err matron) is a joke. wink

Just wondering if anyone is having any problems with the international bank transfer and communications with Mieke.
I transferred 480 euros on 7th Jan and it still has not been confirmed as received. I have emailed Mieke 3 times with the details of party names and transfer reference number but I have not received a reply. Not even confirmation to confirm receipt of my emails.
Now call me paranoid or not but I'm beginning to feel like I've been scammed.
Anyone else having such problems???

I am sure that Mieke (not Mike Ian ) is a nice lady who despite all the worry probably has more in life to do than organise this intruder meeting, she has a job, family etc. She has linked with us on this club and on facebook and could have a large number of intruder club members across europe to deal with. Plus stuff from the Belgium club to organise. Don't let panic set in just yet!

I typed Mieke, but it came out Mike...bloody spell check. Whilst I understand that she probably has a life outside of bikes I can't help but feel responsible for the €360 I have taken off other members and forwarded on to her.

%th European Itruders meeting - Belgium

Post  Creamytash on Sat 01 Mar 2014, 11:57

Hi folks, I have been reading about this and it has blown my frock up. I know that I am a very recent FNG and I know that the trike I am doing isn't even finished yet but I am interested. I realise I don't have a lot of time left to committ and get sorted but I am going to do my best. My partner Sue says she is interested so at this stage I am going to say leave it with me to see if I can pull it all together. I appologise in advance to Mick for what I anticipate to be a load of stupid questions about the admin side of the trip while I try to get this sorted.

Intruder owners european meeting Bulgium

Post  Creamytash on Sat 01 Mar 2014, 20:19

Hi,thanks Mick I'll take you up on that and if any of the members knows the answers to some of my questions I'd appreciate it if they threw them into the mix.
Firstly, I have looked at my rota at work and I am actually 'weekend off' that weekend so I now just have to book the Friday off and wait for it to be confirmed by the boss -Not to mention finish the work on the Trike but we are talking June and I want it up and tested by at latest April in the hopes that I have time to iron out any Gremmlins.

Here goes with some of the silly questions:

Is anybody else camping (tenting it) if so where please.

I take it we make our own crossing arrangements.

In the UK Trike riders/drivers don't have to wear a helmet by law - does anybody know what the law is in France and Belgium.

I am told bikers must put hi vis stickers on their lids or potentially face an on the spot cash fine by the Kermitts ??
Same with having to at least carry Hi Vis vests or jackets??

Info Only - Carrying a spare bulb kit which was part of French law has been dumped because the French have recently produced a car(not sure what make) that only a main dealer or authorised garage can get at the light unit - it can't be done by the driver at the road side.

I also undertand that UK drivers/riders must carry at least 2 self breathalisers(2 because if they stop you and test you thats 1 gone. You then have 1 in reserve so can be allowed to continue your journey). However I have since been told unofficially that this law has also been dumped by Kermitt - but can't confirm that.

That'll do for now till I can think up more Sh1t questions to ask.

Not aware of anyone camping. Pitches are available on the same site we are staying at, but you
will still need to book via the "Intruder Owners Club Belgium".

Yes ya sort out ya own crossing, a lot of us are staying in Ashford on the thursday night and getting
the train on friday morning (approx 10am).

Forget all about hi-vis and breathalisers, not needed.  thumb

Not sure how the French, Belgians view a trike ie car or bike but reflective stickers on helmets, technically yes but rarely enforced. High viz vests on bikes no but cars yes. Breatherlisers on hold but since they are the size of a fag packet and cost less than a fiver! Bulbs, many modern cars it's impossible to change headlight bulbs at the road side but tail and brake lights? And again cheap sets cost a couple of quid in Lidl.

5th European Intruder Convention - Belgium 2014

Post  Creamytash on Tue 04 Mar 2014, 20:55

SITREP -
I have had the time off from work authorised today ie; Thurs 12 & Fri 13th June.
Looked on the eurotunnel site and obtained a price for the trike which unsuprisingly is the same as that for a car = £51 + £52 = £103 return - ouch.

So I have looked at the ferry option and got a slightly better deal at £78 return this being the cheapest return crossings I could get short of crossing at midnight and saving £4 each way( 3alls to that).
It looks like I will be crossing on the puke bucket, which will mean I can't run with you guys on the train - hey ho, I'll be ok.

I would like to now try and book to stay in one of the mobile homes if possible so I need to ask if anyone has space and would be willing to share with us - given that we are not known to any of you.
We are none smokers, easy to get on with but snore and fart in our sleep like everyone else LOL.
Any offers please.
If all else fails we will tent it.

MICK - it we finish up tenting it can we pay to take the meals as the people in the cabins would or would that be rolled into the camping tarrif ??

I realise that I am going out on a limb booking this trip given that I haven't even finished the trike yet.

plus other activities that the fee includes, you will need to ask Mieke (Belgium Rep) about that, so
will send you her email address once you've heard back from the 2 guys above  thumb 

Shame you won't be on the same crossing as most of us, but we will see ya there anyway  thumb
