    Do We Need To Bring Anything ???

    Proff / Sid,

    I know you have most eventualities covered, and Sherlocks are close by, but is there anything (small-ish) that might be needed ??

    I'm thinking of manuals, nuts, bolts, shims, tools and so on.

    Things we might have in our spares boxes & workshops that will fit on the bike along with the camping gear.

    Only "most eventualities covered"? Less planning went into D-Day. I only hope we have not built up expectations to levels that we can't deliver.

    I been running around since 5.30am and only came in from workshop around 10.00pm. Even wife was helping clearing up workshop gone 9.00pm after electricians had finished today.

    I seriously think we have most things covered and as you say Sherlocks are just up the road. I also have an account with a friendly local motor factors who will deliver to me over the weekend or at worse, we can have a ride out to them.

    I bought a few extra tools this morning to allow for everyone all wanting a 10/13mm socket/spanner at the same time.

    It might be handy to bring own knife, fork and spoon as we only have a finite number and might have to resort to paper plates cups etc if supplies run out. If you have a favourite beer mug then please bring that as Proff was horrified that I suggested drinking his fine ale out of disposable plastic pint glasses (saves on washing up for the ladies as well!).

    Main thing to bring is a good sense of humour and willingness to enjoy yourself.
