Czech Invader Rally Trip - May 2022

View Czech Invader 2022 on InvictaMoto's travel map.

Checking the routes in MyRouteApp for the first two days as we cross Germany, I saw a few problems. There are three of us on the trip and only one has a bike that will cruise along with a huge mileage.

Vera the V-Strom has a 20 litre tank and I would estimate that after about 175 miles she will be on fumes. Both days have an element of motorway in them where we will plug along at 70 or so (cough) and then a load of more winding roads.

A few tweaks and the fuel stops are added to the routes for both days. I try where possible to have a fuel stop as close to the hotel/B&B overnight stop so that we start the next morning and are away on the journey with no need to stop too soon.

It will be an early start. We have to be checking in at DFDS in Dover by about 7am for the 8am crossing. All our docs and covid passport stuff needs to be available. At least it is something we can't blame on Brexit!

Arrival time in Dunkerque is around 11am local time and then we need to get a move on on the first part of the journey that will see us cross Belgium with one stop for fuel. The idea is to get to the Bikers Ranch in Simmerath for a late lunch. Bratwurst hopefully. Then it's across country to the first overnight near Koblenz. It will be a long day, but the hotel has its own restaurant and bar.

Two weeks today and we will be on the way back!
