How to stay safe and enjoy your motorbiking holiday in France
So you've booked your stay at 3Bs Biking and have planned your trip. You're excited to be riding in foreign lands.
But if you're a newbie to motorbike riding in France there are some laws and some slightly strange road rules that you should be aware of:

DO I Need to carry breathalysers when riding my motorcycle in france?
No. The law remains in place but there is no fine for not having them.
do i need to have reflective stickers on my MOTOCYCLE helmet in france?
The law seems to be interpreted in differing ways, depending on who you speak to. Some say only if the helmet was brought in France. However it is worth noting that no one seems to know anyone who has been fined for not having stickers (to our knowledge - if you have please let us know!)
DO I need to carry a warning triangle and spare bulbs on a motorcycle?
You do not need a warning triangle nor is it a requirement to carry spare bulbs. It is however a requirement to ride with dipped headlights on motorcycles at all times, so if your headlight bulb blows, you are in a bit of bother. If your motorcycle has replaceable bulbs we do recommend carrying spares.
