How far South?
Not far without pontoons.
Technical and tyres
Its possible that the fuel lines / pipes could be degrading inside and movement has caused part injector blockage. Its also possible that a block connector may have some corrosion and now a bad contact in one or more circuits with movement. So its a reverse of whats been done.

No sadly, but we are saving everything we have for the FIA European drag racing Finals at Santa Pod in Sept.
Legal and insurance
I've had motorbike insurance for over 20 years, Carole Nash in the early days, more recently MCE and this year Bennetts. I had never made a claim in the 20 years (plus owned a car over same period with no claims).
However in July this year (2015) I had my bike stolen, (one of the worst experiences ever), from a fairly busy car park, on a busy road and in broad daylight with immobiliser and disc lock etc. I was insured fully comp with Bennetts. I rang them on the day it was stolen, obviously, I was passed to the Insurer (Chaucer) who in turn passed it to claims company (Brownswords). it only took 5 days from calling Bennetts to getting a call from Brownswords to say my claim would be settled in full and for a very good settlement amount. I received my cheque 12 days from my making my claim!!
All I would say is check small print on policies and avoid agreeing to automatic renewals etc. Happy biking......
Did the Hawes - Ingleton road today, slowly. What a great road - apart from the very steep turn in Hawes onto the road itself, which was scary.
Went to meet a couple of friends for lunch, both in their 70s, both apparently typical grandmas. One was very interested in my bike. And she said, over lunch, 'I used to have a Sunbeam, great heavy 500cc thing it was. Used to ride it from Cambridge to Scotland'. I love that, you'd never guess to look at her that she was roaring about the country on a Sunbeam in her 20s.

Come on then, don't be shy.....
I went to the first two shows and it was absolutely brilliant.
The last time I went the Harley crowd had taken over and it was crap.
I took my son and daughter and it was bloody sad. No bands, Virtually no stuff outside in the street and
the custom show was Harleys only with one token paint job Bandit.
We stood and watched the Hawgs riding round and around outside making lots of noise flat out at 50mph until one broke down and then we went home.
