I arrived and found a cheap hotel, its part of a chain called B&B Hotels, it was 46 Euros for a double, although a bit more than the Formula 1 (the cheapest and biggest chain in Europe) i did get my own shower, toilet, sink, fresh, mansize towls and a fairly comfy bed. Well worth the extra 9 Euros. They gave me a room on the ground floor and the place was laid out like an American motel u see in films with a covered, raised walkway outside the room and a parking space infront with a lovely view of a commerical estate that the French do so well.
I was looking for somewhere to chain my bike to when it struck me, why dont i just put my bike in the room? I checked no one was around, turned the bed 90 degrees and squeezed it through the door. So now im sat in bed with a very warm motorcycle acting like a 200kg storage heater, maybe i should have let it cool down first....
Meeting my uncles and their friends at 10.30 when they get off the Chunnel tomoro, another 400 odd miles to go and i'll be in motorsport nirvana.
