Well, we're off!

The weather was great this morning, promising a nice weekend. Paul realised his M.O.T would expire on Tuesday, so had to nip out to try and re-new his tax. Quick drink and we were under way.

The first leg to Oxford was nothing special, in fact not until we got past Gloucester did the roads get nicer. But it gave us a chance to get into the rhythm of the trip. Rode with (what I thought) an interesting bober style chopper which had the early Harley style bars circa 1940's.

Once we hit Brecon on the A40 the rods became really good with long non-threatening curves. It was around 4:30 and we both admitted later we were getting tired, which probably explains why we got detoured to Newport, quickly resolved with the help of Tom Tom.

We arrived at Twynpath digs, just outside of Fishguard around 7pm both feeling tired. Ifor and his wife at Twynpath could not have been more friendly or helpful. Immediately on arrival Ifor got the bikes in the garage and his dear wife made us a pot of tea. They did make great pains to point out that we hadn't asked for an evening meal! So Ifor drove us to the local pub to grab a bite to eat and picked us up later when we had finished for the price of fuel. Fantastic.

So full bellies, numb bums and tired we retired.
