Just one thing though,its the 1st time i have been out properly on it,and last 10 miles or so when i was changing gear it felt like when i was in gear it wanted to move slightly to next gear(by sound) if that makes sense?

It maybe just needs its first service; the cables on all new bikes stretch initially.

Congrats on your ride btw ;)

Congratulations thats a good speed over 80 miles.

Definitely sounds as if your gear change cable has stretched a bit,they all do ,if your not ready for the bikes first free adjustment service just pop in the shop if its local I am sure they would happily adjust it and show you how to do it at the same time.
