Yes, today is the ride down to Kent, where we stay overnight and then off to the Tunnel tomorrow morning.

He has had all year to get his bike ready, since January. Now, we will just have to wait and see if. A. he arrives in Kent later today. B. If he makes it to the Tunnel tomorrow. C. If he makes it to Neuerburg without a breakdown. D. if he manages the entire week without a breakdown. E if he manages to get home without a breakdown.

he has a habit of breaking down. (did you guess)

Its not his tyres Im really worried about, its that Heath Robinson mototrcycle he is riding.. one of Hondas best. but he's had it in his hands for a few years now so: who knows.

Roll on tomorrow, ready for the off.

The M6 was surprisingly kind to me on the way down with little traffic and only one traffic jam :cheers:

Made it in one piece... And Bonio turned up to say hello, but he's only staying here tonight and going home tomorrow. Had a meal at the beefeater and a tad squiffy. Told the guys to be at the MacD at 7 and leaving 7:45. See how that pans out.

And so to bed.

Great that bonio came out to play for a bit too. Hopefully the m20 closure didn't cause any issues with getting to the tunnel.

I'm still going for a ride out today but sadly its to go to work not the schloss.

So sorry that you and Igloo couldn't make it :(

We're here now and for the most part it's been surprisingly quiet en route.

The last 20 miles or so the weather turned to the shits.

Rest of the week it looks good.
