Well done Rich, there is a cafe just around the corner, and a Wetherspoons about 50 yards away where you can also get breakfast.

I am also booked now.

And there's a flipping model railway in that park!

Maybe I should bring some kegs of my home brew! Actually after several hours on the bike it'll probably explode and kill us all so maybe not!

And now I have booked booked and booked hotels.

I just thought, reading the new chap K1600 post, if I bought a Moto Guzzi V7 and turned up on that I wouldn't be able to keep up!

Not that I'd get rid of the K for that mind you... but still... some bikes are slow. k.

It's not what you ride it's the way that you ride it. ;)
As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everybody is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

The video I made of last year's edition seems to have generated more traffic than usual between the 22nd and 26th of Jan, generated by youtube searches. Anyone here any idea why ?

No idea.
But pop the link back in here, as an advert/dissuader. And watch the hits rocket. 8)

I watched it once in that period. Maybe I'm an 'influencer'! Or influenza.

Sudo's video here of our trip last year.

Excellent. Watched it all over again, Philippe. Are you coming out to play this year?

Small chance I will, mainly because of other plans.

Moreover, there's now your Brexit : probably long waiting queues at the ferries to be expected (I think I'll at least first have a look at what this results into) ? And as I'm not riding my K1300S any longer, I may feel a little more "outsider" also because of that   :)
