    Bit of an odd question!

    after your 10 weeks at Plymouth, in your 6months at Sultan (AET) what do/can you do about visiting the kids ect on the odd weekend you may get off later on?

    is it simply i have to catch the train again down to cornwall and back?

    i'm asking as if i can park my motorbike up there on base somewhere it would make things alot easier! and cheaper!

    Cheers

    Andy

    lol cheers for the quick reply guys.

    i asked as i thought they prefered you to take the train, heck they pay for your ticket there so, and i can see how it wouldnt work if everyone took their cars in, but i thought if i tucked the bike out the way somewhere it would get the nod...

    i got my PRNC on monday so can ask about a bit then

    Cheers

    Can you get CTM for your bike or have they throw the towel in on Convert to Milage, or am I talking B*llox

    As a serious answer, in Phase 2 you can have your bike/car at Sultan but you will park a long way from your accommodation.

    The A38 at night on a bike is fraught with danger. On a Friday, it is probable that you will be on this road during the dark hours....be careful. I sometimes found it beneficial to set off very early in the morning so by the time I got to the M5, the sun was just up...happy days.

    Travel claims are just about non-existent nowadays.

    Yes - it happens most mornings, even in the West Country. When i said I set off early in the morning, I meant early early.

    cheers,

    i'll ask about and see how i get on.

    i just wanted to know as i'll need to re MOT/TAX/Insure it before my basic, then take it up to phase two when i can. if parking of "students" was a no no then it wouldnt have bothered but makes my life alot easier having the bike up there for seeing the kids and lady when possible :)

    For less traffic I always leave the M5 and head into pointy head land via the A30. The A38 is shite IMO
