The main reason to replace the P-bar with an M is that the M allows bar ends. Numb hands are my only gripe with the Brompton.
I had to drill the stubborn bolt on one of the brake levers. Sometimes WD40 is not enough.

On the train back home: Montparnasse -> Poitiers -> Montmorillon -> La Trimouille. The last part is by bike.
A Garmin device is too small for my eyes. It has a great battery life and is waterproof, though.
For an orientation in space and time, I’d rather use a phone.
An interesting fact is that there are fewer roads now than 20 years ago. Oftentime, your Garmin urges you to take a shortcut but there is no actual road any more. I try to be good and report every map error.
My route: board the TGV at Montparnasse to get to Poitiers. At Poitiers, there’s a little local train to Montmorillon. And I still have 16 kilometers to get home. No public transit!
Pour aller de Montmorillon à La Trim, j’ai utilisé ce scooter des enfants. Il fonctionnait très bien.
Solution: the little red-wheeled Razor scooter!
It worked very well. This is my travel gear at Poitiers.

Lolita was written in this house . It took us some effort to find it. Ithaca is also quite hilly, a real challenge for a bike. So Bob drove us one way, and then I biked back.

For crossing the immense Pacific ocean nothing beats the old trusty Boeing 747. (The newer Boeings and Airbuses are slower!)
