    no but i may be up for that too, thing is the weather is so hit and miss up there we were very lucky with it as we only rode probably less than an hr in drizzle the whole 3 days but it humped down in the night , wouldnt fancy packing all my wet shit away and then riding all day on tarmac youd freeze atleast when on the dirt bike you can get into the woods to get a sweat on

    we booked twin rooms so it was pretty cheap

    Why would you need to cancel b&b's after booking them ?

    Altho  I would do 4 days, it would be too long mind, we could have seen more by splitting the milage more equal, there is only so many mountains to look at..

    I worked it out to be roughly 140, 140 & 230 miles a day (we did chuck in additional tho coz we had time), reason being the longer leg on day 3 was because I didn't want it over in 2 hours or so to get back to b&b to do fook all.

    B&B's were £32 a night for night 1 & 4, & £35 a night for night 2 & 3.

    What would you ride it on Wolfy ?, only asking coz the 990's were looking for fuel around the 140 ish mile mark, if you was still thinking your 450 with little wheels you'll need to carry lots of fuel.

    & I'd say no more than 6 riders for ease of the trip. & knowing now.... May is the best month to do it in.
