Default AR14 Convoy East Cost

I'm bringing the Strom. The trailer and oil is not for me.

Might be able to borrow a twin bike trailer if the other bod wants to trailer it up and down.
One bike on the trailer makes it a bit uneasy

Yep, that's the plan set off on Friday. Although perversely I will be in Liverpool until Thursday and it would make sense to ride my bike up on Sunday, and then travel cross country.

But I don't think my family would appreciate not seeing me for a week

Thanks to NTEC's Biker's Britain guide I've knocked up this alternative route...adds 50 miles on but wow! Seriously tempted even if it's 8 1/2 hours

I know......and although it says 2 hours more than the other route I bet I can get that down a bit, especially on those back roads. My only concern is fuel stops, I need to plan those well as I am not pushing a Rocket III! 6am start I reckon so I get some serious R&R in once at the camp/pub
