If you are transporting your BSA on either a trailer or van and are traveling into France from the UK, then you 'may' be sugject to custom charges.
There is this French form you can fill in which declares that your bike is on a holiday and not being imported.
Hopefully it works
Also, I don't know what regulations are in place for entering the EU via the Netherlands or Belgium

3 Weeks to go!!!
route to the campsite;
from E42 exit 7 Theux - Polleur
          follow the BSA signs
from E25 exit 43 Beaufays,
          follow N30 direction Beaufays 1km
          then N62 direction Spa 16km
          BSA signs from Theux
Due to road works, the passage from the centre of Polleur to N640 is completely closed!!


The tours, general information

The Camping Polleur is located in Theux in the province of Liege.

This province offers a wide range of beautiful locations for touring and visiting.
We have made a selection of short and longer rides.
The beautiful destinations can be visited alone or in a group.

BUT unfortunately we can't arrive anywhere with a group of 300 pers.
That is why we have opted not to make fixed day trips,

but free trips that you can do alone or in smaller groups on a day and time of your choice.
As a result, there is no mass crowd at these places and you can enjoy these locations in peace, and quietly tour this beautiful region.


Please note, groups with more than 50 motorcycles must have at least 2 road captains!!

This is with a fluorescent vest with the mention "road captain" and a small traffic sign C3

Without motorways, highways and with as few major roads as possible, we ride along the many beautiful rural roads,

with a detour, to the destination. You can pay a nice visit there or just a refreshment

and continue along other rural roads, again with a detour, back to the Camping Polleur.
If desired, all routes can be made longer or shortened or a short-cut can be taken in order to choose another or the fastest way to the Campsite

and this on your own initiative and must be mapped out yourself.

In Wallonia, the speed limit on regional roads is 90km/hr 56mls/hr unless otherwise stated.

Because of road conditions and the unclear bents, we recommend 70km/hr 44mls/hr.

In built-up areas the speed is 50km/hr 31mls/hr unless otherwise stated (30).
This part of the country is a motorcyclist's paradise and many motorcyclist's think they are everywhere on the Francorchamps circuit,

so the Police are not very popular on motorcycles and there are many checks on speeds AND on excessive and unnecessary noise!

So no Harley rituals please!


Dress code;
Legal approved helmet,

long sleeves,

gloves WITH fingers,

long pants

shoes higher than the ankles.

High visible and protecting clothing is recommended!

To prepare yourself and install sat nav, I've attached are all rides as a GPX file, as a map and with route description.
This will soon be on and will also be available on site from our IT specialist Bryan.
Want to know more about these destinations? Lets google!

Depending on the brand of GPS, the maps used and the updates, minor deviations may occur!

The arrival points will of course remain the same.

We wish you many safe kilometers/miles and unforgettable touring and sightseeing pleasure.

Hello Rene,
looking at the BSA dispatch books.
Frame EA7.2678 was fitted with engine CA7.3467, and dispatched to Marea, Paris, (the French importers) on 05/01/1956
It was in the colour of Black and was an A7 swinging arm model.

Apologies for the link

If you are taking your ROAD REGISTERED bike to Europe on a trailer or in van, then you do NOT have to take any extra documentation. (import /export documents)
You just need your registration document (V5C) and a copy of your insurance.[0]=AT0MFxl9zTOXR3Jo2IW9T_EK3Fyd1ms1pSPRKlnp36BJoe7xtw_wwRmGbUyDEB1MBcp7g7-aEExceyFrCUjR-lZFSG7xZwCivs8khr3RRC-QAqCzYeUJOy5qIRlLWCDoguPfQhckaX4_xO7-4ZtuxC1RoFp9GdBQn9e8aZ5sIA6cnQM

You also need proof of COVID jabs, or is not a very recent PCR test.
Also travel/medical insurance is recommended but not mandatory
Be also aware of restrictions for carrying food products

You are responsible for finding out the latest regulations for each country you are travelling to (France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, etc)

Booking for the Belgium rally is now closed as they are full.
There will be 280 people at the rally.
see you there!

Well this is interesting.
Looking at the dispatch books, the frame GA7.13181 was not fitted with any engine and not dispatched as a complete motorcycle.
It could have been used as a spare frame sent to a dealer.

The cost of ferries has gone up quite a lot since I last went abroad for the French rally.
Towing a trailer, the Dover-Calais crossing was over 400, so I've gone for the Harwich-Hook which includes a 2 berth cabin for 510.

Remember that you can use Tesco vouchers (up to 210) against your booking for P&O and Stena

The booking form in the Star is the Belgium version
The UK version together with an explanation document is on the UK BSA website.
Note: If you want to book either a temp or a caravan/motor-home, then you can use the UK form, and pay for it by April in Sterling via me.
If you want on-site accommodation, then you need to use the Belgium website and pay directly using Euro's.

Any refunds from the Belgium club were stated to be using PayPal, however there are costs involved, and in the past, the mass refund has been send to me, and then I send out peoples individual refunds, this is to avoid bank changes where currency transactions occuer.

if you were thinking of camping at the Rally, which I assume you were, you can book through me, and pay in Sterling.
Also, paying to international accounts, you don't have to go to a bank, you can do it online or on your phones app.

Shaun, the dates and confirmation of the John Bull were  delayed, and it can take 2 months to get info into the star if things get submitted at a late time
The booking form for the international is in on the web page together with an explanation of the online booking requirements if you want accommodation
Also, I have talked about this on this forum to keep people up to date.
The old days of paper forms is not used by all international clubs, and has moved to online booking (especially Australia)
For up to date information, the website or forums has to be used to get updated information to people, the Star is too slow

I'm assembling a C11G for a friend.
The oil feed from the oil pump goes to a grooved timing side bush
How does it then get to the big end?
I cannot see any oilways there ?
