Rob's place in Antwerp at around 7.30am.
We hit heavy rain at Ghent in Belgium – passing a mangled cow in the middle lane of the motorway that had been hit not by heavy rain, but a truck – and of course it only got heavier once we crossed the channel and got back to England.
Mid-afternoon, we finally circumnavigated London's new moat – the M25 – and I was able to dry my boots in front of Matt's fire and enjoy a cuppa.
UK-France-Belgium-Netherlands-Germany... about 800 miles on 60-year-old motorcycles, with no breakdowns. I think we'll all remember this one for a while.
