Anybuddy up for a visit to Paris, France next year? A room in the Hotel de Hollande, like Gustave had, 138 years ago? :wink:

Hehe... These daze labeled as a "Two Star" hotel... and "affordable"... North Americans wanna go "slumming"? :lol:

e-Touring with a trailer with the same size wheels as your e-bike, and one wheel would have a duplicate motor in case something breaks on the e-bike, its an easy swap. Then put your stowed spare wheel on the trailer and giv'rrrrr on. A spare controller, spare spokes, DC air pump, tubes. And dont forget them Schwalbe Marathon Plus Guard tires. Be good to go cruising around Paris, eatin croissants, then when night falls camp out with the Gypsies.

Hehe... "Gustave had a "window" at l'Hotel de Hollande"... Hehe... Bring yer sleeping bag... though unsure yet how many l'Hotel will let cram in one room... ;) Given a "Two Star"... I suspect "flexible". :lol: NEVer been a "hippie" and "crashed" somewhere? :roll: :lol: Can take turns crashing the Paris "night life"...
