Have some posts (including mine) been deleted from this thread and if so  an explanation would be appreciated.
Selective sensorship without reason is not conducive to a free and frank rant.  :mytwocents:
Me and a few buddies are off to southern & northern Normandy for a long weekend in a couple of weeks and are looking for recommendations for biker friendly accommodation en route.  :dirtbike:
Day 1 - We're travelling Portsmouth to Cherbourg & down to Mont St Michal via Bayeux & have the first night stop over sorted with La Motte B&B in a place called Virey ( ) but are looking for places for the rest of the trip and would prefer places that you blokes may have used in the past & can recommend.
Day 2 - Virey to Rouen via Caen - So looking for something around Rouen.
Day 3 - Rouen to Le Touquet via St Valery Sur-somme- Looking for something near Le Touquet.
Day 4 - Le Touquet to Dunkirk via the Parc Naturel Régional des Caps et Marais d'Opale- Looking for something in Dunkirk.
Day 5 - Dunkirk to Dover ferry and then homeward bound.  :grumpy:

Any help would be appreciated.  :thumb:
