I'm alive! 7 hours, average of 40mph, but got here eventually. I lost the snow around Nottingham, only to find the million or so people heading home after half term, and miles and miles and miles of roadworks. Now bathed and with a glass of wine, looking forward to a 5am start and lots of hard work tomorrow.
Thanks to just about everyone there, but especially to Ian for picking me up (again and again and again) and providing an excellent tyre-changing demonstration, Paul for patching my tube and getting me safely to York, Steve for getting the TA down The Hill, and Alex for helping me sort my heated grips before the trip, I would not have survived without them!
Sold my old GPZ via fleabay on Sat, whatever the money goes towards will include knobbly tyres!!!
