Cardiff to Rome - a long weekend.

Hey, I am looking to put some miles under my belt and someone I havn't seen in a while is in Rome at the moment. I suspect that I am likely to ride down to see her at the end of march/beginning of april for a couple of days.

You see my perfect opportunity here? An excuse to ride!

Anyway, never done any long distance riding before so I dont really want to go it alone. If anyone fancies a ride or is heading in that direction at that time then let me know Some good views from those mountains in easter as the snow melts.
Life has no meaning, quit searching for it and start riding!

My plans have actually changed slightly since I posted. I've added another 300km's to the trip by writting in a visit to stuttgart, germany. Anyway my plan is thus... (keep in mind I don't have a leave/return date yet)

Basically going to leave early one day, stop in one of the cafes in Cardiff for a good british breakfast and then head down to dover, cath the dover to boulogne(sp?) which is £50 return with speedferries.com Then ride about half the distance to Stuttgart before catching some rest in either a cheap hotel/motel style thing or in a tent. Next morning ride on to stuttgart and meet up with some friends there for a day. Again ride half the distance to rome, sleep, rest of the way. Day or 2 in rome, return home via france again probably need a stop over.

I'm on a CB250 that'll cruise around 65-70 (if the kickstand will stay up) quite happily but wont really push beyond that.

I won't be able to go any other time as I have commitements with uni and work. If You could go during the easter break that'd be cool though.
