    Great roads, used to do them on my bike, but watch for camera vans. We used to do the route before 9am on Sundays, used to pass the vans on their way out as we were heading back.

    Enjoy !!!!

    Oh, and welcome !

    Yeah specially as ive retired it as a daily driver. So time to blow off the cobwebs! Not sure a 10 year old motor would keep up with a twin turbo tho

    It'll wipe the floor with my slushbox !

    If you do get on the last bit, the so called Cat & Fiddle, there are a few vids on youtube, loads of hairpins, few off camber, usually signified by newly repaired bits of stone wall !
