I’ve decided that I should take my bike over to England. My reasoning for this is that my bike is getting quite old now as it is a 1988 GSX-R750 (about 17 years old) and so I don’t really want to be riding it 3000 miles this summer without taking it for a long ride first. As Guernsey is only 5×7 miles across you can’t really ride for any decent distance at a decent speed (without the narks and razzers coming after you!!!!!).

My plan is to head over to England for a bank holiday weekend and give it a good blast. That will give me a chance to a) check the fuel economy of the bike and b) check if there is anything wrong with the bike that needs to be sorted out before I head off through Norway.

Things I need to go to England:

  • Paniers
  • Fit my autocom unit
  • boat tickets
  • more to come…
