Ben's had an off, sounds like he's alright and is pressing on, may need some running repairs at P4.

thats a real shame, at least it only cost £600...

Hope he is physically ok and makes it to JoG's

Obviously an event like this can only run with the help of a sophisticated Comms System, allowing us to pass messages from Pitstop to Pitstop easily.

No photo description available.

I don't know whose writing that is...

Righty-oh. Some updates from P4. (Apologies the alarm went off at the Yacht Club and I had to go down and sort it out!)

The front lot are properly moving. To get into Gourock by 1800 and then straight on the Ferry is giving it some. I reckon the first riders may be arriving at JO'G at 0100-0130 if they keep up the same pace.

Ben has made it to P4 and the team are trying to repair the back brake. For an oil tanker, it appears to bounce well!

Most of our riders are now through P4, with some skipping the ferry to make up time. As Ifor says the front runners are keeping up a good pace!

Yes. I had salad and a bit of chicken for dinner. I am currently licking the screen...

First few riders are through Inverness and P5.  Rich Sutton on the GSXR, with Andy and Nige about 10 minutes behind. Luke's tracker shows him not far off, and some of the others can't be far behind either.

Some of these '£600' motorcycles are looking really pretty bloody good value.

Where do I purchase one of these '£600' motorcycles? :huh:

I think the trick is to buy crashed ones with fairing damage. My FZ6 was £400 because of that. The insurance weren't interested in it and it was cluttering up the workshop of Phil Youles' place, so getting anything for it is better.

As always, some are on their normal bikes because the shitter they bought, erm, shit itself :D

Remember, @Hawkati did it on his 916 one year for that exact reason. Fucking crippled him.

Many look a lot better in the pics than they do in the flesh.

And it's not as if we've got fleets of GS's lined up, is it?

If BMW marketing were sharp they would. It would be like the new Charley and Ewan Long Way Round, but done properly. By idiots.

Ok, so let me get this right... the trick is to get less shit shitters, than shit shit shitters...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can't get shitter than a shit shit shitter, we're the ones to trust!
