On the way back to Chaivigny, I joined a small group riding with Ray including Paul Newman (Kawasaki ZZR 600) with some interesting off-road sections. We stopped again at Angles Dangles and enjoyed some excellent home made local ice cream whilst watching a group of French bikers arrive and a quick walk up to the local Chateau.
Church Altar, Oradour The owner of the place even claimed my French accent was American and she’d mistaken me for a Yank! My response in French-American accent - “Je Suize Americain” or was it “Yeah baby, do you wanna rock?!” to which she replied in a heavy French accent “Zat is a terrible accent!”
Ray and Shirley Spreadbury at the “Angles Dangles” On returning to Chauvigny, I joined the SAM contingent for a drink in a square in the town centre. Stories then started to flood in from Andrew Foulger and a few others about the old medieval town with serving wenches in traditional dress, it simply HAD to be checked out!
