There's lots of very straight forward lanes from J28 of the M1 that I do on my 1200 GSA.
I could knock up a .GPX file for you if you like.
I could plan a route over to Ashbourne, up to Matlock and on to Buxton.
There's plenty of fuel stops as well if needed.

Anything would be most appreciated. I have joined the trf but want a little experience before I inflict myself on others!
Thanks.

If you don't mind riding over to Ashbourne I am happy to guide you from there. I'm just north of Burton on Trent.

Welcome.
I would very strongly recommend linking up with a group and go out with others.
We all started somewhere and all the decent guys will happily take a newbie out.
This is not a game for lone beginners.

If there are any training companies near you it's also well worth lashing out on a day or two.
