You're in the best place for RC51 owners to discuss their bikes. A lot of knowledge and good people here too.
I have good memories of riding in France, albeit a long time ago (nearly 20 years!)
Some great roundabouts to be enjoyed and little villages to stop and enjoy a baguette with Brie cheese, or something else. Some great avenues with fields full of sunflowers too - this time of year. Enjoy your SP1!
