I was gonna say...isn't England like 300 miles long?When I said 600 miles, I meant round trip.
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.
