    Caught the train at 15.50 as planned.
    Guy with me on a Y plate Bonnie had come from Italy originally via the Mosel Valley. He was off down to Cardiff when he got off. Top bloke and a well used bike!

    Home as well.

    Bloody pished down on the top(the Yorkshire side) of the M62.

    The 3 intrepid Northern contingents enjoyed a great meal on the ferry coming home, Prawn cocktails, Steak, British Beef Burger served on a Brioche bun, Chips, vegetables and Salad were enjoyed in the restaurant.

    Thanks all it was good to see you again :heart:

    Given the bike a quick wash down and fill up, back aches from lugging that rucksack. It was a great tour and I personally would go back to the Mosel valley in a heartbeat. Still much to see, in fact I've been looking at taking the wife in the car sometime.
    Speedy got from just past Brussels to home on a tank :eek: averaged well over 50mpg on the trip, so tank range comfortably over 150 miles. Plenty TBH. Would I tour on it again? Yes-other than the lack of wind protection, luggage carrying and comfort, it was great :grinning:. Joking apart it was fine for a short week/long weekend. So much easier to lug around and get on and off the ferry too. In conclusion many thanks to Daniel in particular but to all involved. Very convivial and no ground for complaint. Cheers :)

    Got home about 11:30am this morning after calling in at the local butchers for some nice dry cure rindless back bacon that I had with cumberland sausage ring, egg, beans and toast as I'd not eaten since last nights meal on the ferry.
    I hear Nikki @BonnieCat hasn't broken any bones so that's good and I hope you're feeling better soon Nikki.
    Well what a great week that was. Great roads, great scenery, great food, great beer and great company. Thanks Daniel @Winglad your guidance and interpreting were second to none and thanks to all who attended, we had a great laugh. It was also a pleasant surprise to meet you too Abi @ElectrAbigail and I look forward to meeting you again next year.
