The French are revolting. (No change there.)

I was out a run on the Harley thi afternoon. I refuse to wear a gilet , but I did bungy one to the handlebars. The demonstrators I saw were all a friendly bunch and didnt seem to be causing any delays around here.

The French are revolting. (No change there.)

Had to go for a bidon of fuel today and expected hold ups, but when I got to a local roundabout there was a dozen or so gilet clad protestors. They saw the gilet on my dash and just waved me through cheering and clapping. I do like french protestors.

ANTS Request. Help Needed

Just politely explain that a CT isnt required for bikes. I had a long battle getting my pre 1960 car accepted for the same reason, but if you are persistent you will win in the end. They have been known to cancel the file and you have to start all over again that happened to me too.

Carte de séjour

There are two lists of docs. For a 10 year / permanent, it is exactly as FB has listed. For à temporaire it is the lesser list. It’s the same everywhere. ( slight procedural differences in Paris as everything in Paris is done via the Prefecture de la Police). One additional document if you are self...

Carte de séjour

I had to provide a similar array of documents as FB mentioned, plus a further statement detailing even more my various income sources. Fingerprints were taken by machine as Shovelhead has said above.

Old fuel lines

Modern fuel causes severe degradation of fuel lines over time - its worth replacing them.

Using solar panels to maintain battery

I had a small solar charger made up for me in Portugal for my camper engine battery. I think it cost about 25 euros.
