what a cracking evening, so I set off around 5pm to Wray near Bentham.

I rode via Sabden, Sawley, Slaidburn and through the Trough of Bowland into Wray. 80miles to get there and 2 hours(ish)

 

Here's a few photos

 

looks like Scotland with the twisty Road

Back in the day my mate had a z650. It was a good bike but he reckoned it vibrated quite badly for a four. Mind you at the same time I had a z750 twin which was full of fancy balance shafts etc, but it vibrated that bad above 70mph that it used to blow its headlight bulbs.

 

We once did a Lands End to John o'Groats run in 24 hours and I had to stop off in Inverness until dawn because the headlight kept blowing.  When I set off at 6am I had 3 hours to do 150 miles on a full tank of 3 gallons and the bike did around 50 mpg. I got there with 2 minutes to spare and did it just within 24 hours from setting off at Lands End! I was on reserve with a thimble full of juice left in the tank. Happy days.

 

Riggers.
