Hi Beddowsm. I was aiming for the afternoon so would be good to meet..........

However I now have a major problem. Just had new forks fitted today and my brake hose is now to short. So I need to find somewhere who can make a longer one for me tomorrow and then I can fit it friday morning. I will post tomorrow night if I get it sorted. Sounds like a tall order to me so if I don't make it have a good ride.

Hello again All,

Mr Minky and Tenere Mart shall be meeting up 9am at Jnc10 M56 – On the A49 Whitchurch turn off there is a layby on your left.

That’s a tad early for me as I shall be coming off a 12 hour night shift in Lancaster at 7am on Friday then having to drive to Liverpool to pick up the bike and Liane before making my way down to the rally.

I shall be taking this ROUTE and in no rush while I have a look at the wonderful Welsh scenery. It takes about 5 hours for the full run but as I said I will be no great rush.

I will be leaving Liverpool at about 10am for any that wish to tag along with either then please feel free to join on or make your own way and I look forward to seeing you at the rally. :)

The road south from Newtown to Crossgates is excellent, starts with lotys of hairpins then opens out into wide sweepers enjoy cheers Spud ;)

5 hours...hope not, I was allowing 3 for the same route. AA route thing said 2hrs 50 mins?

Ive made Llandridnod Wells in 2 hours which is about 100 miles from Runcorn?
