Have a super time buddy. Hope the crossing is calm and there aren't too many kids/drunks/smells on the boat.
And now, Harry, let us step out into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.

Good stuff Al, enjoy the trip.

In UK speak, your consumption is about 62mpg. Sounds good to me too...

Well I fixed the Alp today but too late for the repeat test. And anyway at 200cc it's too far to Llanes in just one day!

Look up the hill from the Ferryport and give me a wave....I've had my ride today on my new XSR700 so can vouch for the shitty weather that's hanging over Pompey ...wish I was heading to Spain too....
