B.C.E.F = black country expeditionary force, our travel plan!
having stopped in moffat many times I have found a travel plan which works for anyone from the midlands and would like to invite anyone to join dave 1962 and myself if they wish.
climb on bike join M6 and sprint to junction 34 (sprint means minimum legal limit)
that's the worse bit done.... caton, claugton, melling, tunstall, Whittington, Kirby Lonsdale*
*will need eat to now cannot stomach bridge snap wagon (dog food served by a village idiot)
fantasatic breakfast at lunedale bakery cost a couple of more, but you get what you pay for!
climb on bike barbon, killington,sedbergh, Kirby Stephen, brough, middleton in teedale, new biggen, alston.
Now tell mr garmin take me to moffat (turn off motorways)
if you wish to join us please PM me.

From there we want to drive to Moffat via Hermitage Castle, as everytime small roads with comfortable speed  :biker3:

I'm also planning to turn the trip north into a bit of a holiday.

Essex to Stockport (probably via Leics so I can see Stewie's yellow flyer); a trip round Lancashire with my mate on his old BMW (R60 I think); then on to visit relatives near Helensburgh; Fort William then Mull and Skye before heading south to Moffat.  Already looking at CalMac website to book some ferries.

 Corrected for you, Tony.

 (probably via Leics so I can see Stewie's yellow flyer, if he's still speaking to me)

 "I hereby state that allcolours fantastic to have on your motorcycle.
Each is equally as nice as all other available colours and each is a perfectly valid and reasonable choice and I applaud all selections!!" :027:

 So when my RED one leaves your yellow one in it's dust you will embrace the green that it will inevitably become? :187:
