Welcome to Rollin’ Free! part 2

Welcome back to Rollin’ Free. We left off yesterday starting to look at what this blog is going to be all about. And that is mostly motorcycles and motorcycling in France. What exists today in France is an extensive aftermarket industry, a few vehicle manufacturers and a broad range of enthusiasm for competition, touring, commuting and tuning. This leads me to my second objective for the site, which is to cast a spotlight on the individuals, organization and businesses that support the motorbike industry here in France. I hope that, in the long run, the international community may be able to profit from these resources.

Almost a parallel draw, we come to my third objective. This is to keep the English-speaking community based in or coming to France up to date on laws, events, products, news, etc…As an expatriate myself, it has taken some time to source the information I needed to continue riding and integrate, as well as connect with this subculture. Hopefully by being a one stop English language resource, I can help others find their way in a bit less time and with a bit less hassle.

We will, of course, be covering equaling interesting news each week from elsewhere in Europe, so don’t despair if you want to get some general moto news from the old world as well. I’m hoping this blog will take a life of its own, that its content becomes tailored to the needs of its readership. With that, I invite you to send your comments and suggestions so that we might render it as beneficial and interesting as possible to its audience.
