It was a tough battle ... we couldn't hope to out drag them on the straights but managed to pass by out-braking them into turns or drafting behind them and getting a tow to slingshot by on the longer straights.

Our destination was the 'Snack Bar' at the top of Glen Ogle ...100 miles might seem a long way for a burger ..but when it's 100 miles of twisty great roads it makes perfect sense.

From the ride up...



Re-grouping at 'turn offs' en route....



Jeni



Gordon..


Stopped again to re-group at the Rob Roy near Aberfoyle ..this Ural outfit was there...




Rural scene up near Callander ..can you spot the tortoiseshell butterfly - summer must be nearly here!.

Sunday run continued...



Strathyre



Blue sky to the north still...


Climbing up Glen Ogle .....lots of fine bends and scenery..






At the Snack Bar on the A84 - Dave and Jeni arriving....



Fine dining 'al fresco' .....


It's a favourite stop for the police to have a brew at too....This one gave us a cheery wave as he left ....

Sunday...unfortunately we didn't beat the rain and got showered on for about 10 miles on the way back...

Few more pics ...



Mark's new MotoGP-style brake guard.....



'Dirty Girl!' - That's the problem with getting caught in the rain..well apart from getting wet.

Something amazing happened! ....... Summer! ......... it was a 'For one day only' deal......24C ! ..... Suddenly it was 'action stations' as the call to get out and enjoy it whilst it lasted became urgent ....Work was abandoned early and an evening rideout hastily arranged via texts.

Boy did it feel good to be out riding in the sun and to be able to sit outside in T-shirts at 8:00 at night having a drink. ...maybe I dreamt it ...after all,- it's wet and 11 C again today ...No wait! - I have pictures to prove it actually happened.

'Scuse the blurry ..it's not blurry really - it's 'arty'..

That's Graeme sporting his new carbon fibre helmet in the pic above ... That thing is light! - feels about half the weight of my Arai!

Helmet (it's not actually sitting on the tank - it's floating just above it ):-
