European trip

I was very proud of my cinq when it completed 1000 miles in 3 days on a european trip Nottingham - London - Calais - Bruges then back to Doncaster.

Unfortunately the whole thing fell apart soon after it returned! 4 days of hard work and have just about got it fixed now though

Was an interesting excersise in calais in how much beer you can fit in a cinq with 3 passengers. We managed 144 bottles of stella, 104 bottles of leffe, 48 bottles of hoegarden and two boxes of wine

performance was a little on the slow side after that!

Re: European trip

I love the feeling of pride when absolutely abusing the tardis like features of a Cento.
I moved house it two runs before. lol.
Only big stuff like bed, bookcase, desk etc went it a van.

I'm moving again this month (fingers crossed) so i'll take lots of photos of my packed Sei. I gota do it without a van this time tho. lol
I can imagine the fotos looking highly amuzing with a bookcase on the roof and it packed out like a Dolmush!
