i was planeing to ride down to cornwall on my 125 but neaver got around to it dur to insureance and petrol money i would dule carrage ways/a roads arnt as slow as motorways anyway when i go cornwall in the car normally takes about 4 and a half to 5 houres from southeast london and we only go on a motorway for 1 juntion on the m25 then we go a roads all the way down xD
Take it easy, enjoy the ride. It’ll take as long as it takes. Imagine if it starts chucking down with rain half-way through? It’ll take even longer…just take it easy and enjoy!
I don’t think you’re mad in the slightest btw. I’ve done two weeks of regular riding down to near Southampton, in all Weathers, and having gotten there I feel I could easily go on and do the same again. Riding on A roads is fun, much more fun than on a Motorway…
I wouldn’t like doing that trip on a 125 you’ll get loads of cars, vans, trucks doing dodgy overtakes on you :ermm: I wouldn’t like not having the power to avoid situations that might occur.
Take some ear plugs with you for all the wind noise and a screaming 125 engine, all the best if you choose to do it.
A13 into London
A4 out of London
A30 to Dartmoor
leaves a 20 mile jaunt into Holsworthy
250 miles, if you can average 40mph it’ll take the best part of 7 hours riding.
By the time you factor in fuel stops and breaks you’ll be looking at around 10 hours.
If you’re happy at that remember you’ve got to get back too.
and you’ll not be too much of that as you wend your way through towns and villages. What’s not 60mph National you’ll find to be 50’s & 40’s with far too many 30’s thrown in as you work your way trough village after village after town.
