Just a quick report to let you know my wish was granted. This evening my daughter-in-law and I went to dinner by motorcycle, then enjoyed riding around to see all the sights lit up, down the Champs-Élysées to the Arc de Triomphe, along the Seine, under the archways into the Louvre, down to Notre Dame, back around the Eiffel Tower, Musee d'Orsay, Assemblée National, l'Opéra, and so on. Yes, cycling through traffic around the Arc de Triomphe was daunting, but it was a cool beautiful evening!! Bonne nuit!
