Hello Peter,
Many thanks for all your efforts in organising the event, I enjoyed it so much!
I knew a couple of the riders from previous times and places, but most of us started as strangers to each other and we all finished as friends. The camaraderie amongst motorcyclists is well known but this trip for me was very special.

When I decided to have a try at covering the run, it was not without a fair degree of trepidation. It was wintertime, some health issues and even the cost for a octogenarian pensioner travelling solo created a fair degree of anxiety and apprehension.

In finality I arrived home after more than 2000 miles with a sense of high achievement and some wonderful memories of the generosity of others I met along the route.

The new to me 1981 R65LS on which I had only covered short rides till then performed magnificently and did everything required without fuss. I surprised myself at covering the final 420 plus miles to home on the last day with a feeling of I could have done it all again.
As my children used to say "Where are we going to next?"
