Marvelous ride down through Glen Coe and Rannoch Moor then the inevitable rain from Tyndrum all way to the other side of Glasgow . I was going to nip across to the A1 / M1 again at Penrith but the A66 junction was at a standstill so I got back on the M6 and cained it all the way to the Stone turn off . Then I headed for Uttoxeter and picked up a nice road I know through Abbots Bromley to Lichfield and home . Despite being on the road all day I'm feeling pretty good the Harley took it all in its stride . I can't remember which Services this is but I've always loved this building . It's so Gerry Anderson !

forton near lancaster :) the top half of the building has not been used for years

How could these have anything other than happier times ? I bet you could get a decent bit of Steak and Kidney Pie with proper veg and spuds up in that restaurant . None of your f*****g Macdonald's and Starbucks shit in those days .

Could have been anywhere . I have spent a great deal of my life, including my education , looking out of windows . But now that I'm a Civil Servant , looking out of the window in the morning is not encouraged because it could leave one with nothing to do in the afternoon .
