    Welcome! You almost had a third bike to pick up at Tayport but I chickened out of the trip with two days to go. Glad to see they're making progress - think I would just have slowed them down (mine's just an 800)...

    Cheers, Think the 800 might have just fitted. Those 1200's are big even for a LWB van!

    Well with 3 foot of snow settled outside and the van side window's frozen until well south of Penrith I think it was the correct choice

    Glen, John and Sid are safely in Zaragoza, probably in the bar by now. They left the snow behind around Pamplona and apparently found some nice roads and had a bit of fun!!!! Boys will be boys!!!
    Glen has even put his shades on because of the bright sun - surely not?

    But everyone knows you'll be crossing on the ferry from algerciras to ceuta, and then have to be in rabat.
    They'll be thousands of other vehicles on the crossings as well

    I've just spoken to Thunder he's having a great time despite the -4°c temperatures.

    The postings saying where they currently are and showing their exact locations are causing them some concern. Could we hold off on this please
