The people of Roanne can be very proud of their motorcycle club Seven's Motor Corporate who showed hospitality beyond the call of duty to another two wheeled traveller.
I did not have time to meet the mayor who was out of town for the weekend, but Jo, the President of the club signed the certificate for Nuneaton and accepted the photos and certificates from Nuneaton and Guadalajara on his behalf. Hey a president is one up from a mayor anyway and Jo knows the mayor anyway.
What did I find out about in Roanne? That it has a magic Road where you roll uphill and that the town has its own superhero called Super Skunk. My second beer came from a man dressed in WW2 German army uniform and I found out what frogs legs taste like.
Thanks to the people of Roanne and particularly Seven's Motor Corporate. It would not have been a success without you.
Bon voyage, next stop Parma in Italy with some scooter boys. It's like coming home!
