weather was roasting with 30C ...not good when we had to filter for miles on the M6 in a huge jam ...the car drivers had been sitting so long without moving that they were opening their doors and getting out to wander about ..making filtering even more hazardous..:wacko:

Waiting for the St Malo ferry at Portsmouth...

Oldish...

it was 460 miles .... not too bad as we got up at 5:30 to get rolling ... but by late afternoon I was melting in my leathers ..couldn't wear the Kevlar jeans at this point as the leathers wouldn't fit in the bags.... I wasn't expecting to need them till we got to France!
