I'll double check with Stan but a quick calc looks like 108 MPG average.

The FS1E speedo indicated 513.5 miles travelled and my digital speedo carefully calibrated to the wheel dia read 501.8.

Top speed for me was a true 47 MPH

Average speed whilst moving was 33.58 MPH

Overall average speed was 30 MPH (this is pretty much a constant over all of our long runs)

Actual moving time was 15 Hours - this is very interesting - as far as me and Stan were concerned we only stopped for fuel - and one quick cuppa and bacon butty at the Humber Bridge so where did 2 hours go ? It must be all those fuel stops adding up, plus one stop to change my plug that had fouled, there was a little waiting in traffic but not much.

Well done lads

I look forward to riding with you on the Eagle Run, which in comparison is a walk in the park

I only took a couple of pics, as when we set out it was still pitch black. The first part of the route took us down to the deep south of lincolnshire, stamford Spalding Boston etc, it was very cold and we must have nearly killed hundreds of suicidal rabbits, as they seemed to want to run under our wheels.
We then went up the lincs coast Skegness mablethorpe grimsby and then onto the Humber bridge and up into Yorkshire. I was very scared at this point as i had never been so far from Eagle.
Onto Hull and up the coast all the way to redcar



We could not find a Redcar town sign so we had to make do with this, You can tell by the demented look in kwackers eyes, that all those miles and the early start had made him think of one thing only, CHIPS,

Well done must have been hard work, especially once up in Yorkshire.

Looks like you went past at least two chip venders in the video, Stan didn't even flinch
