Oh, if you think some of the roads are small, you should see the lanes around the middle of the island.

Video. About 11 minutes

Yes, you vary the speed on the video.

Very nice place indeed!

living on a tiny island is imo amazing
one of the downsides is a tough time for bikers...

I could always re-edit the video and drop the speed to much lower across the whole video... like x4, x2 etc but it would then be too long I think... but easy to do if you want

The viewer can do it.... I just slow it down and there is plenty time to take notice of everything.

I can appreciate your wanting to live there if it suits, but I'm always amazed at the roads in that part of the world. My driveway is wider than a number of those roads.

I guess the layout on the map is deceiving. Looks like some areas would be more or less open to some acceleration and actually fun.
The commie police and the great lengths they go to would have me behind bars inside of a week.
The freedoms we take for granted I guess.
Nice place to visit it looks like.

Yes, a great place in general,

Like that one road up the West Coast, yes you can accelerate up to 70-80 mph, even on a bog standard 883, but only for a matter of seconds, and then you have to be really on the ball, watching for cars exiting their homes or carparks in front of you.


There are narrower lanes in the middle of the island. �� Even people from England, when coming to Jersey find the roads here small, so it is not totally typical of England. We are maybe 12 miles from the coast of France, French Heritage, although a British Crown Dependancy

I passed through that area in 2018 on my Heritage on the way to Czech Republic for the Harley Rally.

Have been around there before. Very nice areas
