Coast To Coast record

Well after their/His effort on a postie.
Pending the way they go.
It's hard to say.
The postie may not be as fast and cover the K's, But when you get in the gunbarrel. I reckon at times It was easier, less fatiguing on the Postie that on the Big girl.
Some of the things you hit without warning on the postie, I would much rather hit at postie speeds that 690/950 etc pace.
But I'll tip my hat to him, wish him all the best.
and If he is doing it as a Charity event i'll tip in also.










I dont know weather to write this on not.
But Some times I wonder if the risk over rides the consequence.

They won,t be able to do it unsupported on 690s cause they use to much fuel. Going hard in sand, mine was down to 13 km / ltr as opposed to the DR at around 20 km/ltr. Also keeping tyres up to 690s is more of a problem than a more conservative bike.
