  • Last had an A10 in 1976, in 2011 it was time for my 2nd one. It was the project from HELL (but I learned a lot....)

hi all. i m trying to find the right cruising speed on the motorways. 65mph feels safe but rougth in the pot holed inside lane. the motor smooths out a little at 70 plus. thinking of cruising at 75-80 and hogging the middle. anyone else touring  on their a10?
how about you racers? can you cruise at max revs for long?
its a small journal with the bush fitted.

Ah yes BS, I should have thought a bit harder Northumberland has similar

BTW I reported a pothole last week, it and several others have now got an orange outline, also piles of white salt have appeared at various banks and hills, must be an election or something in the offing (please don't take that as a political comment, just an observation gained over 75 years)

Motorways? not much of a worry in Norfolk  :(

Norfolk is always a favourite ride out for me on older stuff from the Essex badlands. Easy access on a more countrified route.
