Non-stop ride’s for fools

Motorcycle News (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

So David Gib­son did the Costa Del Sol to Cheshire in one hit, in 23 hours? Ba­sic maths says that av­er­ages around 73mph. That’s with­out fuel stops, eat ing and drink­ing, toi­let, traf­fic, ferry or train cross­ings, and any other de­lays. So your true av­er­age speed would be much higher, re­quir­ing much more con­cen­tra­tion, not to men­tion break­ing speed lim­its by quite some mar­gin. Some­thing to be proud of and boast about? Don’t think so mate; you’re a danger to your­self and oth­ers. Darren Playle, email
