A Different Kind of Living

As I was going to drive to France and then fly back, I needed to get the bike to the airport so I could get home in a reasonable time on Sunday.

So, we drove up to Stansted in convoy. Following the car on the Pan, I discovered a few things:

1. It is possible to adhere to the speed limits.

2. It's very easy to follow a car but you need incredible restraint if you're to be followed by one.

3. Fuel consumption isn't as dramatically increased as you might think.

4. It takes a lot longer to get anywhere when you drive like that.
