Welcome to the Grahams on Tour

 

July 31, 2018

Our motorhome has quite a large garage and that's led to us being pretty lazy when it comes to packing it. In the past we've tended to just chuck stuff in there but given we'll now be carrying a motorbike, and also will be going away for longer, I thought it'd be bette...

We've got quite a few things underway with sorting out the motorhome. One fairly easy option was to switch all the lights to use LED's, as those use a lot more power than the halogen and flourescent lights that our motorhome has as standard. There were quite a few diff...

Got a very welcome early phone call from the garage that had the motorhome to let us know their mechanic had fixed the suspension bushings last night and they're completed its MOT this morning. Really excellent service (J & J McIndoe in Broxburn) and they will definite...

I'd arranged for one of my motorbikes to go in for its MOT first thing, but the day got a bit more complicated when it turned out that it was also the first day I could get our motorhome booked into the MOT dealer for its MOT. Still with the bike due in at 09:00 and th...

 As we're planning to mostly stay away from campsites on our trip I decided it'd be worth getting better guidebooks for the Aires in France, Spain and Portugal. There are also schemes where you can stay overnight for free which look interesting, so we also got joined t...

Research into the best little motorbike to take in the garage of our motorhome all pointed to the little Honda MSX 125, otherwise known as the "Grom". It's small, light (101kg) and supposedly lots of fun to ride. Our local dealer had a pre-registered one in a very brig...

Well the big news today was that I finally found the main set of keys for the motorhome, which had been missing for a while. Turned out they were hiding in the glove compartment of one of the cars. 

We took a trip out to visit the motorhome and it all looks fine and sta...

No real progress on preparing the motorhome yet although it is booked in for an MOT on Thursday, which I'm hoping it should pass.

In the meantime I've been spending some time sorting out my neglected fleet of motorbikes - many of which haven't been started in a long, lo...

When driving from London to Edinburgh we've long since figured out that the best option is to leave in the early hours of the morning, to avoid the London traffic. So after filling the car with the legacy of Fiona's old working life as a teacher, plus a pile of garden...

The reason we'd been hanging around London the last few days was because I had a speed awareness course I needed to attend - due to being a mildly naughty boy on the A1(M) a couple of months back.

It's a 4 hour course and did initially have me thinking that maybe taking...
