Did I miss something - when did you get this CG?
Is it any good?
What you going to use it for?

Haha well. Monday was a bit slower to progress... But now, I have made it across the border.
PicsArt_09-08-09.12.16.jpg
The CG I've had forever. Bit of a trigger's broom really. Bought it off a guy and his brother in Rossington, which explains a lot if you know the place, but doesn't explain why I stupidly went ahead and bought it off them. Piston was in backwards, no oil to the head (full of rtv silicone stuff). No petrol in the tank, well enough to get me 3 miles away. But it's lovely now, it's got a proper Japanese engine (once again) with 4 gears in race shift pattern. Brakes don't work really but it passes the test.

It's plodded on and got me here to Ruthin. Fancy camp site (actually country club spa.. . ) almost to me sen, all set up and then off to the closest offy for some "ice cold" bottles (got an erdinger to try and pretend) and then a really good chip shop. Sorted. Apart from nearly getting lost on the way back, but managed to avoid going to gaol which is signposted everywhere, everybody must like going to the Ruthin gaol. But made it back and the chips stayed warm and didn't get soggy.

Where to go next?

Anglesey to set a new lap record? Top of Snowdon? Harz mountains?

Oh oh Port Talbot steel works!

That all sounds good to me. Especially the busman's holiday bit at the end there.

Isn't Wales meant to be full of OFF ROAD byways open to all traffic?

Not had much signal or time to update. Been a busy day. Currently up a hill in don't know where, in midddle of nowhere in mid Wales with a bottle of Vedett and some waitrose crisps. It's about to get dark and I need to get back down to my tent and stead set up next to a stone henge, in my poolsliders.

Well that's a bit more proper camping than this. But I have got a fire going within the henge now. Toasty with a Tripel Karmeliet in hand.

What's this about wet Wales somebody mentioned? (@Bungleaio ahem). It's been dry nearly all along! I haven't actually dared look at the forecast once this whole time. It will probably rain tomorrow. I did have to change gloves earlier.

Hmm. It's not the continent but some of it is very familiar, like being back in the Eifle...

@smallfrowne Glad you've made it away and got an Erdinger into you. Hate to think what might have happened without that.
Looks like a good trip. Posh too: Waitrose crisps and private henge.
