Hope you had a safe trip back to Staffs our ride back to Bury was eventful, we were soaking wet, driving rain and crosswinds on the m-way made it a bit hairy on the GSA. Will try an keep anyone posted of their whereabouts if they get in touch.
Roi and Bron

Take Care all who travel and are on the road now keep safe.....
Hi Roi and Bron!
Thanks for your message. Great to meet you both and glad you made it back home ok too. And a big thanks again to Alans family and friends for making us feel so welcome and a great send off for the lads!
Glad you read the updates, Barry txd me friday as Bron said earlier Romania Friday, Bulgaria Satdy, as for today ermm! i dont know possibly Turkey, Oh! r u going to the H.U. meeting ifso all 4 days or just a couple of days can you let me know, Bron told me to get lost an go hav a gr8 wk-end so i said id go. Baz said he'll let me know when he gets the boat to Russia so that cud be a couple of more days and they'll have there first drinks on us in Russia. See you again soon.
Well I'ved managed my little jaunt over to Prague and back - still waiting for an update on where Alan and Barry have managed to get to, and any events that they have come across / managed to over come.
I wish they would have taken a tracker with them, then we could have plotted their travels across the globe, and tracked the daily miles that they manage to get through.
Hopefully get back you to all with more news soon.
John glad we all met up - at the big send off - although the ride back was horrible - we will all have to plan a meet up - and have a ride out - espcially - when Alan and Barry get back.
Arrived in Russia (StP) in 2.5days from London. Could have done without the 2 hours scrabbling about at the border - but I leapfrogged a group of 15 Italians all on big BMs thanks to M's translations of documents!
Not trying to be the next Nick Saunders - I used good hotels at nights instead of keeping going.
If 352, 702 and 840 miles is 'girlie', go look up the Long Way Round schedule - I hope for your sake you dont meet Charlie or Euan. Could be some black eyes above your nose, if it is still there!!!
And they had big bikes - my Dakar struggles at 90 (I know big boxes, filled too heavy etc etc) but how it performs on the poor but fast minor roads I used in Latvia and Estonia. And it really was a star on the rough and loose of the last 120 miles - I found the loose verges smoother than the tarmac!
Really looking forward to the south where tarmac has yet to be discovered!
(M says Hi and x)
Just a short message to you, hope you keepin safe an have a safe trip to Russia and back, John (tx me if u goin H.U. meeting) not been on for awhile, but i said i would keep any one interested updated to the whereabouts of Barry an Alan as they not doing a blog.
