MOTORCYLIST Wayne Booth has ridden into the record books with a non-stop journey from John O'Groats to Land's End Land's End, promontory, Cornwall, SW England, forming the westernmost extremity of the English mainland. Of wave-carved granite, it has cliffs c.60 ft (20 m) high. Offshore are reefs and rocky islets, on one of which is Longships Lighthouse. .
The 854-mile trip took him just 15 hours. He averaged 57mph, but that would have been quicker if roadworks had not slowed him to a crawl To search the Internet for hosts, Web pages or blogs. See crawler. .
The 37-year-old teacher said: "It went like a dream until we reached roadworks on the M5 which reduced it to one lane."
Wayne's 1,000cc Honda Varedero had an extra 74-litre fuel tank added to it so he could avoid pit stops.
The motorbike was donated by the Japanese firm specially for his record bid.
Wayne said: "I had tried before and failed on my own bike, but Honda were so impressed im·press 1
