I first rode PBP in 1999 the same year as my first (double) SR, there was a lot of PBP talk on the qualifying rides and I just sort of went with the flow. Other years though I've crawled round a 600 and been so glad that it was over with and I didn't have any longer rides planned. There are a very few guys out there who relish in riding loads of 600s but for me it'll always be a blooming long way which might be why I haven't done one for over 2 years.
