I'm off to CR on the 23rd, two up, and I've booked with Wild Rider. Our route will cover some of the same territory so the report was really helpful.
A couple questions:
1) Any one place (area) you were at where you wish you had the time to spend another day?
2) Accomodation - we are there over Christmas, so it could be busy and I haven't made a booking except the arrival departure days; did you have any problems getting a room?
