Me on my 3dv my mate on his SuperDuke had a wander down to Abergavenny, on to Merthyr, up to Brecon, into Builth, then Hereford and finally home to Gloucester on Saturday. We avoid the rain but hit several burger vans!!
Approx 200 miles or so, bike performed well and seemed to do ok on fuel. Only the numpty sat on it that needs improving, more miles needed

An aside -

 

But a fun way to spend an afternoon.

 

I'm probably the only member of Carpe to take comprehensive school Year 10 (15yo) students clay shooting.

 

Apologies to OP

Normal ammo used. Did give a couple of the girls 20 gauge, similar firepower but less recoil as you will know.
All of them loved it.

20 gauge has less lead too but strangely much more expensive. We used to give girls Beretta AL391 semi automatic with a restriction in magazine so they could only put two in. 12 gauge has similar felt recoil to a 20, but full lead and cheaper on ammo.
