1 day to go. Luckily I cleaned and lubed the chain yesterday and spotted that the chain was as loose as an extremely loose thing. Got it sorted today and the wee feels and sounds much happier. Also raised the screen which has reduced the wind noise level substantially. Sena bluetooth thingy charge so I'll be able to crank up some tunes from my iPhone on the way down. Dave and Brian all good to go so an early start on the cards tomorrow.
Living the dream, everyday!
