over to Europe on your bike, you still need to keep on top of the new
laws that apply to motorcycles. Given that France, in particular, seem
to change theirs on a yearly basis. This ardent search for up to date
information can be a challenging experience.
Many of the European
traffic laws require you to carry specific items such as first aid kits,
to wear particular items such as reflective strips or modify your
motorcycle, for example adjusting your headlamps for riding on the right
hand side of the road.

for which items you need to take, wear or modify, one is set with the
task of sourcing all these items from various different suppliers.

All contained in a
handy and compact zip-bag. It's light and compact and has been made for
ease of packing. Measuring 26cm x 14cm x 8cm, it all weighs in
