Yes, I did in fact stay in St. Albans, and I`m sure no one else is reading this but me. I find the DL650 to be a let down on all day rides. I have a Dan Vesel backrest and highway pegs but I am still sore from doing two 800km days. I cut my trip one day short because the bike is surging like crazy and will have to go in for service. So, as it stands this will not be a long term bike for me. It does not pass the 10 hour riding test.....
