Old age must be creeping up on me because I can't imagine
undertaking a trip like this now. In September 2010 I rode down to the MZRC
rally in Porlock, North Somerset on my FJ1200. I did 450 miles getting there on
Friday, the same coming back on Sunday and with a run alone the coast and into
Exmoor on Saturday totalled 1,029 miles over the three days.
The FJ is a great long distance bike. It's comfortable with
good wind protection and its big engine makes high speed cruising effortless.
After the trip, however, I realised that the cost of fuel would have easily
bought a return flight to Spain.
On the return journey I even avoided some motorways and rode
up the west of England.
