I tend to prefer to ride on my own over long distance because I can be selfish and ride steady if I'm tired, or ride like a French paparazzi if the traffic dynamics start to annoy me (ppl sat in lane 3 at 65mph with no traffic in lane 2).

I may well be riding down ahead of schedule for some bro-mo homo time with Simon fallout, but failing that if we're going on the same day/time and you wanna link up, the motorways aren't bad at all. I usually ride til fuel light comes on, don't like wasting time stopping every half hour as it ends up taking 7 hours to complete a 3.5 hour journey.

But yeah honestly lew don't worry about/over think it, you'll have a great time if you do attend, the journey down will be a bit of an adventure for you if you don't regularly travel a long way from home. Let me know your timetable on the Friday

Sounds good to me Paul.
I can do either type of riding too.

My timetable for Friday is none existent so could probably set off whenever is best for whoever.
As long as it isn't like 5am and I can get some form of a lie in haha

It doesn't matter if you ride alone, sometimes I like the open road and just me. I rode to the AR in Wales alone, I had an epic ride there took all A roads and B roads ect. Just do it, you have to travel alone at some point, I started as teen so its never bothered me.

I can't make the AR, got to many things going on right now, I have been to to enough to know its a good w/end!
Blue K6 Sport Alarmed, Crash Bungs hot grips, Viper race can!
Year of the Monkey....what animal are you?
