Default So... AR14

Well, looks like the good years of holding the AR where the sun (occasionally) shines are over, and they've book one at the **** end of the country!!

So, assuming all goes to plan the missus and I will both be riding, but I suspect riding all the way up to Scotland will be a bit boring, so if we end up going we'll be taking the car and trailer with the bikes on...

We could easily accommodate another two people and their tents/luggage/kit and possibly one extra bike (narrowish, it'll have to slip backwards between the two on the trailer)

Anybody else feeling mad enough?

Nice weather you're having down there.......even the 'surfers' are scared to go out.

Don't worry us Northerners have built an ark...we can lend it you southern fairies if you like!

Now now, I know the ZZR1400 is a bit of a barge but "ark" is something of a hyperbole...

Could be a plan. You staying til sunday, or through til monday? I also am looking at a ride of that duration with a bit of trepidation, especially with the mileage we'll cover over the weekend. It's been something like 20 years since i was doing stuff of this nature . PM me and let me know and we'll go from there.

Just posted in the GM convoy thread, I won't know till much closer to the time but if the guys and gals from this end of the world have a plan to convoy up May tag along if I can.

It's a long way to go on your own!

Did the 336 miles to Mary Port on my jack.
It's quite therapeutic.
Over night stop then back home
All for a christening!!!
