Another update:
Dropped off the package sent from Gary at Sportax to Doug at his wild camp today. Also took the ignition case off my bike to lend to Mick who has an ignition problem. Doug has fixed his bike and is on his way to rendezvous with Mick in Portugal. Just to add to the adventure its been raining alot for the past few days.
Nice to meet up with Doug who was in good spirits.
Just like to add if any other MT rider is in my neck of the woods and you run into trouble I would be happy to help any way I can.

Good work Paul, it's heartening to know club members can have support when away from home. Be careful you don't end up with just a frame :shock: that may become a popular route south.

We are making our way across the Pyrenees (slightly behind schedule) Bonnielad has fuelling probs so joining us at road points, Stu has oil-less forks so may join him. But we're all still ready to join Mick when he comes up from the real heat (FFS it's hot enough here!) Awesomeness trip so far.
