    Been staying up silly late watching the lycra clads pedalling the back blocks of France. Part of the challenge is Kombi spotting the roadside hoards. Bit thin on the ground this year? Still looking for the red and white split that usually attends. Otherwise been entertained..

    Good luck.......;)

    Been to France twice in the last 12 months, and Kombi spotting was very hard. They are quite “thin on the ground” there....:(

    Your right Al - don't know were they are hiding this year. Seen on about one T3 - but seemingly more big motor homes. But into the mountains tonight.

    And yes Mark, we watch bikes to see kombis. Makes we wonder what we look at when stuck in long lines of kombi komvoys...... oh yes, we still look at kombis:)
