Small beginings

This is the first of what I hope will become a regular posting - building up to my trip around the coast of the UK on my BMW R1150 RT.
I dont have a firm date for the trip, but it will be after October 2012, possibly in the summer of 2013, when I become 60, or maybe the year after.
I am not anticipating a huge readership for this blog, at least not yet! but if anyone does have experience of this trip or similar i would love to hear from you.
My plan as it stands, is embyonic. Riding about 200 miles a day i will follow the closest road to the sea arounfd the whole of the UK, my estimation is that means a trip of about 4500 miles taking roughly 23 riding days. with time off, and the innevitable delay, I am planning for a month on the road.
As I get used to this blogging business I will put some more interesting details on here, and look forward to contact with fellow bikers and travel enthusiasts.
