    We did J o'groats to LE in 17 hours and something for Streetfighters magazine. We would have done it faster but Simon Frary (staff writer) threw the press test Yamaha down the road at the end of the Gos Moor. As we were pulling it out of the ditch (he saw a speed camera and slammed the anchors on...) Steve Damerell came by in his car. he looked at us and recognised HIS bike! he heaved over and even though he was going out for the night, he turned round, went back to Damerells and opened up to get the bits we needed, plus the tools to fit them.... back on the road in about 40 minutes! he asked why we had dumped the bike on a straight.... that was when he told us the speed camera didn't function. We still set the record at the time, even taking time to grab pictures en route. I think it might have been the Fazer, when it first came out - I can't remember now.

    I will have a look and see what is involved.

    I can do that without paying £250 for the privilidge. That would cover fuel, food and YHAs for a month!

    £250 is money well spent. Nathan does all the route & campsite planning. The fee covers all your campsite fees. The information pack he sends out (excellent booklet with advice about preparation & kit, A5 atlas with exact route marked out, credit card size reminder of all your campsite details) is all very well done. You also get the company of lad himself for a week - worth the entry fee by itself! If you're very lucky you might even get to meet Martha!

    Thoroughly recommended. Might even do it again this year.
