    Its on!

    As said on the other forum, hope to see you there. Anyone else going to stay in Calais ready for the first morning? Boat and a bed looks cheaper to me.

    I probably will drive down from Rotterdam Thursday evening, to be fresh and rested for the run south.

    OK...so thinking of coming along on this one. I'm new to touring at this level, but I can look after myself, so I won't become a burden I hope Although at a mechanical level, I'll admit I'm crap. I have also been considering the Moto-Morocco tour in April instead of this, but I'm thinking that a ride with no itinerary or back up is a bit more adventurous and appealing....cost is another thing. Any thoughts...will this be too much a case of in at the deep end? I don't mind baptisms of fire! Lastly, I fancy getting on some pistes whilst there, anyone thinking the same....would anyone have a problem with a 'newb' in tow? Should I go on the Moto-morocco tour first before jumping in?

    This has been a difficult decision but I've got to bow out. I'm trying to live the dream without paying attention to the things that matter, in my case a first house deposit so I can get out of the renting rat race.

    I feel like I'm slowly turning into a couch GS'r. Especially when I just bought the 1200 and stuck 2k of crap on it. It's perfect for any tour now, but I don't have the other stuff to make it happen.

    Have a good one.
