    Updated blog right up to point of starting return journey solo.

    And I've managed to hook up the photos for each day so worth a second look.

    Thanks for positive comments above, much appreciated.

    PS I think I've managed to at last find some lithium batteries for my Spot transmitter after everyone tells me "they don't make lithium in that size". I'll plug them tomorrow and you can all come with me on a virtual trip around Jersey, it won't take long as the place is only 9 miles by 5. Speed limit is 40 mph at best, 30 in most places, 20 in built up areas and near schools and 15 (Yes, 15mph!) on the small country roads. No chance of doing a 500 mile day over here.

    I wonder what speed Sid has done up the B35 St Ouens straight ????
    I did 100mph in 1975 on our honeymoon in a horror car and got threatened by a Centenier

    I did hold the unofficial land speed record in Jersey on that very road. They close the road for racing in Jersey and hold a 1/4 mile sprint race. I had a Yamaha FZR1000 running nitrous oxide injection. I crossed the finish line at an officially timed 146mph but kept it wound on for another 100 yards or so. A local bike copper was trying out his new radar gun and clocked me at "over 150mph" apparently this still stands as the fastest speed recorded by the Jersey police.

    The local BMW dealership are offering test rides on the new S1000RR so there's always a chance to beat it. Would need to time it just before I get the ferry back on Monday night.

    Finally arrived back home.

    Threatening letters from creditors wating on my desk. Better get some bills paid this week.

    Reality sucks.
