Uncomfy ride on your own for that sort of mileage but your brother! Well he must be a glutton for punishment as the pillion seat just doesn't look comfy at all to me.
Must have been a good day out though

Yea my ass is made of steel now....soon my brother's ass will be made of steel as well haha....we took 1 break each way....137 miles it was too reach NC29biker near Stoke on Trent (a petrol station called Moto Stafford North services off the M6 basically) and then we went to Lynn Raven cafe and then from there we went to Ponderosa cafe, North Wales. Also for about 30 miles my brother was on the back of the Turbo Bandit....

My brother said the needle on the speedo was going towards zero on the 1200 turbo Bandit....ill think twice next time of allowing him to go with NC29biker lol....an acceleration burst is cool....but definetely not top speed on public roads

Always wondered what bike he would get, think i mentioned once before to you that his videos were one of the first i ever watched and used his carb strip and rebuild video to help me do my own.
How did you meet him living so far away from him?
You should consider changing your forum name to iron butt :grin:
