Thanks Simon, & I suppose the proof of the pudding........ & all that! Hopefully with the jabs rolling out now, there might be some confidence in travelling abroad again this summer?  :046:

I’m very much hoping I’ll be able to get to the Picos in September, having had to postpone the trip last year.

The R plus mountain roads is probably as much fun as you can have with your clothes on. 2-300 mile days on ‘proper’ roads no problem. Motorways less so and about 450 miles was my personal limit (I don’t have an iron butt).

But my top tip to anyone heading in the direction of Southern Germany / Austria / Northern Italy is always to consider the OBB train service to take the strain out of the motorway mileage anyway.

A mate of mine is picking up a 1290 Superduke GT this week and we’ve discussed a 5 day trip next year using the train to break the back of the journey as I know a few that have done it and it definitely is the way to travel.

We’ll do some overnighters this year if we’re able to, Tenby in Wales is a favourite for a weekend, great run from Oxford.
