Finally got home from a wonderful 11 days on the bike. Spent first week hugging the south west of England coastline from Bristol around to St Austell and then a 2 day saunter through Devon, Somerset and the south Wales coast to be at the rally.From there I have meandered up the west Wales coastline and finally back home to Wrexham, just shy of 1,400 miles in total and loved every one of them.
This was my first rally and I have to say I met some incredibly helpful and accommodating people (some slightly eccentric people too.. you know who you are!) :P This was my first "proper" bike tour and I wanted to see if I would actually enjoy life on the road as much as I thought I would, it's safe to say, the bug has well and truly sunk it's teeth in and it's not for letting go any time soon!!
Thanks to everyone, especially Big Al, who offered advice and recommendations to me the whole weekend, I went wondering which bike I should buy to fulfill my dreams of foreign travel, I left being even more confused than when I started!! :laugh: I'll get there in the end but until then the old Trophy, which is being treated to a new set of boots in the morning, will carry my fat arse around for the near future.
Thanks again guys, you are all a thoroughly decent bunch! (thumbs)

Thoroughly agree Steve, just need something a little taller, I felt like a bloody jockey at times! :laugh:
And looking forward to the next little adventure, I've already had my maps out! Haha

The rally was a great end to 10 days on the road. Northamptonshire to West Wales via Ullapool and home again for a total of 2086 miles.

Apparently I only managed to take two photos:
