Thanks for that, showery and breezy. No worries though, looking forward to it, be about an 800 mile round trip  ;D

Back home after my trip, not as far as I thought - 619 miles. Averaged 54.7mph overall, with 54.3mpg which is fairly impressive from the 1200GS. Won't save it though, still up for grabs at 6k.

It is a superb ride though, enjoyed the ride tres much, even though on the way down I went through hell and high water. Ride back was fantastic. Only casualty was a dipped beam bulb, which was easily replaced.

Here it is at Carter Bar border crossing..
