After finally leaving Portsmouth (see previous post) I eventually made it to cheltenham in about 2 hours. Thats not bad going seeing as how I missed my exit from the M4(?) motorway and decided to take a random scenic route through the Cotswolds and then after, finally, getting to the M5 I managed to take the exit before the one I wanted.Please don’t ask how fast I was riding to manage that!It was good fun riding through, and the bike really enjoyed it. I noticed that above a certain speed the back end gets a little light but that may have been because of the panniers.Tomorrow I’m planning on heading up to Nottingham to see Amber, who I haven’t seen in an age, so I should get a little more practice map reading whilst riding… I think I need it!!!
