Rock out with your cock out 2012

We decided to do our first ride out for three days around Wales with my friend Richie and my brother Adam. We would have had more but loads of guys bailed.

It was called "Rock out with your cock out." This was our stepping stone to a European trip next year.

I have been to the Isle of Man and currently work in a BMW Motorrad shop where people constantly tell me about their amazing adventures.

So we set out from Richie's garage and knew we were heading south for Neath avoiding all the cities along the way. The plan was to stay as close to the coast as possible, find a pub and pitch a tent next to the pub.

Adam had not ridden for a while and was acting like a child, riding a little erratic at times and losing his sleeping bag along the way, luckily I noticed early enough for him to head back and pick it up off the road.

Half way along after a coffee stop the guys start whimpering at the prospect of putting up a tent in the rain. The roads in the south were ok but then declined on the west coast. Luckily the coastal views made up for it.

We ended up deciding, like a group of wet girls, to stop by Adam's father in law's place in Fishguard. A nice cosy farmhouse with shower and bed after a slightly damp day.

Like gents Rich and I did the washing up while Adam had cooked so he got to rest up like an old man.

We had a few close calls with Adams ABS working a lot better than the acceleration on his BMW F800R.

At one point he realised he wasn't going to make the gap so he grabbed a fist full and Rich tightened up his arse a little. I just watched as they were fooling around.

The roads in the north and Snowdon were jaw dropping and I will deinitely go back.

We stopped at a camp site on the second night not far from Snowdon and the temperature dropped to -1 but we were warm enough. No spooning allowed!

Rich headed off early to avoid a rollicking from his missus again, and Adam and I continued to ride along in the north.

Overall we covered 350 miles and had a great time. We will be doing Spain next year and this time I will be a bit better prepared.
