It's a fair way (1h20mins extra on my 4hr drive) out of my way - any chance the holder could bring it to the M6 on Friday night?

Me and AventuraTT are still hoping for a lift; my motor is off the road for now.

I'm to the east, fairly near the coast, but I don't suppose anyone's coming up (or down) the A1?

Riding my original Aventura isn't possible, I only just got it out of storage, where it has been languishing for about five years, needs a fair amount of love and affection.

If I don't make it, I'll be there in spirit...


It would be amazing if we could get you there Geoff! One of my dreams is to see one of your amazing bikes and to say hi! to the designer would be fantastic.

I am going up the opposite coast unfortunately so can't help but surely someone can help?

Great stuff 8)

If it makes you feel any better we're doing 360miles just to get there, with a family funeral and collecting Kiran's forks (hoping they're done in the morning!) on-route. Starting about 0600 tomorrow!

I'd better get packing... :oops:

:lol:
