    There's a long list of adjectives I could use for that outfit but "pure sartorial elegance" isn't high on it

    I'd love to cock on. As much notice as you can would suit me. This new job is rather busy!

    Anyway, who the hell is organising the late summer hoon?
    Some people will tell you that slow is good Ė but Iím here to tell you that fast is better. Iíve always believed this, in spite of the trouble itís caused me. Being shot out of a cannon will always be better than being squeezed out of a tube. That is why God made fast motorcycles, Bubba.

    If you fancy heading a bit further East for a change I just got back from my Ducati Multistrada week in the Dolomites. Fantastic roads, minimal traffic and some great mountain passes, including the Timmelsjoch (twice), Glossglockner and then the legendary B500 in Germany on the way back (one of the best roads in Europe)

    You really only need three things for bike maintenance
    If it moves and it shouldn't - Duct tape
    If it doesn't move and it should - WD40
    ...and if it falls off and you want to reattach it - Cable ties.

    Olde school for me too. have tried 3 different screen on the Roadster from small fly screen to huge thing that you look through. Have decided on the mini fly screen; keeps the water off the clocks and is ok for 80mph on the motorway and handles better than the barn door screen. Place names on the tank bag and a a few maps...however sat nav can come out when looking for the hotel!

    Agreed, but keep it in the bag until needed. Last year when me Donna, Steve and Deb went to France I plotted the route on google maps, dropped down to street view on all the complicated junctions, took a look at the road signs and land marks, by the time we set off it was as if I'd been there before... like you say, a few names and road numbers did the trick..

    Prat Nav was flaky on some of the planned routes at times! I had a map in the tank bag with a list of town names. The extra screen (courtesy of Dr Jon) was good on the motorway sections to cruise at about 95 MPH, nice and easy on the neck muscles, and you looked over the top of it. Normally I just run with the short Pikes peak screen.

    2,300 miles in a week and the seat was a joy after the Tuono!

    Just kidding with you mate, having good wind protection helps with fatigue on long days, especially if you're making progress and sat navs are great for pointing out where you are, unlike maps when you need to know your location to use them.. I trust you had a great trip but with lakes, mountains and twisty roads I don't really need to ask..
