    I've driven from NYC to Rochester to look at bikes and cars before (about 300+ miles), when I was young and stupid and single. You make a weekend of it. Go up, look, buy or walk, drink it up in the local, sleep it off in a hotel room, travel back the next night. Worst case scenario you had a mini-weekend where you puked your liquor in a strange place and maybe caught a different social disease. It's all in how you look at it.

    kinda figured it'd be a round trip mileage.
    Thought that went without saying.
    As you say the NC30's the better bike, but a lot more dosh. The RVF would be better still.

    Fairly sure the Missus would have something to say if I went away for the weekend all on my own.
    It'll have to be done in a day.

    Dude.... we're talking North Wales... for a drunken Englishman I don't think I could think of a worse enough worst case...

    Nice riding country, just don't get offended at the chippy when the locals hear you speaking english without a welsh accent and suddenly switch from english to welsh whilst they talk to each other.

    Ah, how much like America you really are. It doesn't bother me when the Latinos, Jews, west Indians, and Asians did it when I lived in their neighborhoods, why would it bother me when a bunch of white guys do it....I'll just assume they are asking me where the nearest rugby pitch, choir practice, or sheep pen is.

    Two of which involve bathing with other men, the other just requiring welly boots and lipstick... and a sheep...

    The trouble with Wales is the Welsh.

    boy you englanders love to eat your own kind don't cha. I thought the problem with wales was the blow hole....hey oh.....


    so it's welsh jokes then...right.

    What's the difference between a Chav and a welshman?

    Is there a difference?


    I used to go out with a Welsh girl that had 36DDs. It was a ridiculously long name.
