Graham P - the Nottingham ring road must be a nice one! I've only ever stumbled across it trying to get back from Rock City to my hotel
In my experience most of Polands, sorry - Britains urban roads are on a par with a third world country, say Kenya (I know by experience there too), and the GT doesn't really appreciate that imo! I've seen many reviews calling it a 'crashy' ride - I wouldn't agree....unless it's trying to cross a town / city, when sweet lord it is teeth jarring - and why many of us need suspension arms replacing?...apart from the fact we seem to be plagued with speed humps every 20 yards these days for health and safety.
For me it's a mile muncher....and a very nice one too.
