So departure day arrived and we set off for Portsmouth carrying all of our luggage including spares and tools, no back up van as usual.

The ride to Portsmouth was uneventful apart from a puncture on my rear tyre, and as we were to find out later, a traffic fine waiting on our return for inadvertently riding in a bus lane in Portsmouth close to the port.
Once on the ferry we pondered over a map to formulate some kind of plan so we were not ridding totally blind once on the French roads.
Russ chose to take his Lynx Lambrerta fitted with his steel lined TS1 and I was ridding my Winter Model power by my GT250 H2 conversion, both obviously Spanish models.
