Thats one hell of a ride out. Hope you enjoyed East Anglia and you will come again.

No,no .... sorry, we didnt ride down! ..we were just down overnight for a relative's birthday party and so flew down. We have done long rideouts in the past and have ridden to Barcelona several times to watch MotoGP's as well as rides down to the south of France. ..But yes, I loved Finchingfield and hope to be back to explore round some more.

Cheers ..... sorry, I don't know any B&B's near Oban - it has been too near for us to have stayed overnight (we have always done it as a 'day trip' )... the last B&B we stayed in was up in Morar near Mallaig, it was very good ...but not really in the 'Oban area'.

I really liked it .... particularly the thatched roof homes ....




But, yes, we are lucky to have such huge 'open spaces' up here with hundreds of miles of awesome roads ....

I must come with you, and put on the tarmac my knee pads, and after my elbows, and perhaps my helmet... it's a joke, for the elbows and the helmet...

Your roads are ready for attack, for monster braking, and maximum angle...

It's a deal..... although I don't know when that will be, (we were down for Sarah's cousin's 40th birthday - it had been 20 yrs since she last saw him! - but yes, I would like to see more of your area).

Well done on rediscovering 'the passion' - I was in the same position as you about 12 years ago, having had a long break from biking whilst raising a family. My 15 year break ended when I hired a Honda Blackbird to ride to the south of France with mates to celebrate my 40th (probably not the most sensible way to re-enter the biking world -wobbling out into London rush hour on a Blackbird and heading for the Med. ...but damn!, it was good, and I was hooked again .... came home and bought a Hayabusa (which had just come out) . The Blackbird was stolen in the South of France (but that's another story).

Hope to meet up one day for that 'pub lunch'.
