+1 on the dont feel guilty about hitting up the people offering tent space, they wouldnt do it if they werent happy to help. I dont know yet....but I suspect and hopefully will find out that the world is actually full of helpful people when I do drop this collar and become free like you. Go for it mang!!
When the time comes can I request a ADV salute at about 10 o'clock please?? no spreader needed
(I get the feeling being as gentle as you can with the bike is going to be the name of the game for you)
In for the haul for sure
