    Think you would need to meet him on the M5 Bristol Gourdano Services
    From Gatwick it would be down the A303...meet at Exeter Services
    Assuming he would want to meet...!!!!

    I'm taking my GSA. Too old and well built (fat) for little bikes.

    As to riding down......i'm in two minds.
    It's a long slog down and i'm self employed.....so might ship it down.
    No, not done it before. Brother in Law did it last year and really enjoyed it.
    I was supposed to do it last year but a new contract clashed with the start date so I had to put it back a year.

    My first time doing this too. Im not sure about riding back down or shipping back to sussex either. Will try and do it in two days if I do. Depends if I find others riding back also. I might ship and fly to gatwick. Please let me know any couriers you can recommend.

    Odds are there will be plenty riding back down to S. England.
    Have decided to ride mine down to Penzance. Take my time and meet up with a few mates.
