A11 to: Fakenham
If you join the A1065 at the Mildenhall, Thetford round-about and head north towards Swaffam. A lovely route that goes on for about 35 miles, twisties, straights (160Mph+ on a ZZ-R600) and nice little lips of round-abouts. There are a few police, though they're not too bright and tend to wait in very slow sections where you are well under the 60MPh limit. Once at Fakenham, you can either go left to King Lynne (on the fast A148) or right to Norwich also on the A148.
Nuneaton to: M42
A good summer Sunday run this one (We go from Nuneaton) Out of Nuneation past the Graziers Pub, the first couple of miles to the A5 are a good warm up, and decides who's leading and chasing. Across the A5 and its brain out time! Past Fenny Drayton village watch out for the cross roads, then nail it into the Drayton bends. Get 'um right and you'll go over the rise to Sibson like rocket! Fast downhill sweepers now till the village (Slow it through the vallage as theres a turning on the left - 2 bike deaths in as many years) Once past, knock it down and go, the lazy 's' bends out of the village are sweet but be on your guard for the junction at the top of the hill. It's downhill again then with a really fast right, left, right sweep onto the Twycross straight (Top speed duel time). Through the village and there is a straight, bend, straight section till you get to a 90deg right by the zoo entrance thats a bit of a pig (I always go in too fast). Then its on the gas again (note junction on right hand side), careful for sidewinds as this bit is pretty exposed, and down into the right hand sweeper that takes you into Appleby Parva. It's a sprint then to the M42 island. Knee down round it and back the way you came, turning left at the junction just before the zoo. down to the Moore's arms in Norton Juxta Twycross, for a drink, and a chat with the others doing the same run! Then its back to Nuneaton to the Graziers for stories of heroics and soiled skids!! - See you in the summer
Billingshurst to: Petersfield
Huge variety - lots of sweeps, mixed surfaces. Watch out for plods in the villages. Watch out for 30mph camera on way into Billingshurst if coming from North. Road sweeps east from B,hurst through a small village. Crap until then. Once out of village, follow twisties through the forest on a great surface. Twisties for around 7 miles including a real bastard right hander. Last mile and a half before Petworth is totally straight. Time to see if the bike will do 60mph (honest officer). Go through Petworth slowly (there's no way you can do it quickly!!) Once out on the 252 again there's a long sweeping wide road where you can really pan it. Watch out for nasty twists in Cowdray Park.....it looks flat but the contours can throw you wide. More of the same until Petersfield. Usual Surrey rules apply.....30 thru the towns (or get 'plodded') and watch out for crap on the roads. Get to Petersfield. Get a drink. Grin a lot.
Littleport to: Mildenhall
From the roundabout on the A10, turn onto the A1101. Then open it up and see what happens. Like an airport runway for about 4 miles, only one junction to watch for, no hazards. Nothing through the post so I presume no cameras. Remember to slow up for the bend and railway crossing, then have another go for another 3 miles. This will not appeal to knee-down fanatics but will allow you to test the alleged warp-speed potential of your Hayabusa.
