Bikes been serviced washed n waxed now loaded and ready for the off tomorrow. Panic stations last week couldn't get a new rear tyre anywhere and the old had a maximum 2000 miles left and the journey will probably end up nearer 3500 / 4000 miles. Eventually got one although a different compound slightly harder but should be OK done the obligatory 100 mile scrub in so all systems go. Austrian Motogp this weekend at the Red Bull Ring then all week doing as many high Alpine passes as we can cram in then Brno Motogp in Czech Republic the following weekend. Then its a quick blast home by Wednesday as Thursday Jan and I are off in the van to a music festival and from there we leave on the Monday for Germany and Italy (Sicily) with a bit of luck and meeting up with @bungy somewhere on route. Return October Bring it on.
