A big thanks to my cousin Dom, Lyndsay and the crazy Betsy Boo (who after 4 days still pretended she was going to attack me) for letting me stay and looking after me for my time in London.

Today Gráinne and I were reunited. She was  waiting for me at the Moto Freight depot near Heathrow. I had to reattach her screen and mirrors, I then packed her up and was ready to go. I was a bit worried she may not start but she kicked into life no problems, that new battery did the trick.

I must admit I was quite apprehensive about riding in London luckily I was only going to be travelling about 18km, but the timing was bad as I left around 1700 at peak hour so it was slow going and I only stalled one.





My destination was the iconic Ace Cafe, it was nice to meet and chat with Mark & Alfie and a lot of others who were interested in my bike and trip.
