Hi Catweasel - thanks for the encouragement - not to be too philosophical but to quote the Don " There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don't know we don't know."

I didn't know what I don't know before I set off so my only success criteria was making it back in one piece. If one piece meant that the bike blew up on the first day in Belgium then despite being a tad disapointed (and ashamed at having to go back to work 2 weeks early) then that's what the adventure was meant to be.
