Woops! My only defence is that it is 1.00am here in the UK but I'm not sure that explains how I missed that handlebar bag. At least Jan will be in bed now, think of those poor buggers still out on the road for the third night with another still to do! The weather here on the south coast of England has been crap since Monday and I suspect it was the same in France so maybe Jan needed those big alloy mudguards.
