I got in 10.35 pm ,

took feckin ages to get home, at 60 mph.

Got in the garage and checked the back tyre pressure 40 psi, exactly what I put in at CastleGregory.... !!!

Should be pleased with that , but it means we could have teared up the roads to get home.

Had a brill time, got to go, baths ready.. and I need some TLC... I am KNACKERED .... huh.gif

Cheers, Ivan.

Got home 5.15, some slightly illegal speeds most of the way home. 4hrs on the button. Came up to one big Cop check point, slowed as soon as I saw it. Nice guys waved me straight through. Did'nt even have to stop. Only stopped once to fuel up.
195.7 miles, 16.24 Litres. Too tired to work that out.

WHAT more cake. rotflmmfao.gif

A chap can never have enough cake - this was just a slice (or two) of Cadbury's Swiss roll, not a patch on the "Strawberry Dream" I had at the cafe on the hill outside Dingle wub.gif You'll be posting that picture shortly I expect Paddy rotflmmfao.gif
I looked at the stats on Tom Tom for the journey from Castlegregory to home last night - 351 miles, average speed (while moving) 61 mph, 6 hours on the move, max speed on the journey was ...... really quite fast hidden.gif ........ I didn't work out the MPG, but I suspect it was quite good while I was riding with Ivan and quite bad after I left him!

I'm home too - having been rained on for about two solid hours. Some really great roads, and mostly good-ish weather - a big up to Pa Larkin for organising it, hope Syrah is soon on the mend.
