501 miles in 2 weeks on a 501

Poetic licence for my subject however I covered 501+ miles :)

These old bikes are still very ridable, here's what I managed to do in 2 weeks by using my old Morini for various trips:
65 miles on Wednesday evening: to the regional event in Aldworth viewtopic.php?f=15&t=5480
153 miles on Thursday: driving to Calme to collect various parts for a VFR400 I'm building. (The bike was a great luggage carrier)
250 miles on Sunday: visiting the Classic Motorcycle Show in Stafford.
70 miles on Wednesday morning: to visit the OU in Milton Keynes.
538 miles, all on old A and B roads e.g. the A5, the B4009, which suit the 501 well.

PS: Distances are according to Google Maps rather than my Vaglia speedo in KM! :)

No material problems with the bike and I like it more at the end of the week than I did before (and I like it a lot).
