After four and a half glorious hours on the beach it was time to go ...and face the worst part of the day - climbing into leathers on the beach in 30C ...and walking back over the dunes to the bikes .....we met a chap on the way ...he was wearing nothing but shorts and flip-flops and was still soaked in sweat ...he looked at us in our kit and boots like we were mad people .....

I didn't take any pics at this stage as I was in a hurry to get on the bike and get going for some cooling breeze....

Pics from the return ride:-













Another sportsbike! - the only bike we saw all afternoon...

The single track road seemed to go on forever and by the time we reached Salen it was time to stop to get a well needed cool drink out the tail pack .....



At last, the normal road ..and a decent pace could be maintained ... it was so welcome after 60 miles of winding single track (30 each way to Sanna)....













6:30 pm and we are back on the Corran Ferry... eight and a half hours after our last crossing (it's 2.20 per bike each way)...



Looking north up Loch Linnhe

It might be difficult ...Stuart bought that off E-Bay from a private seller ..it is not from a store ...it is an old suit from the 80's that someone had for sale .... added to that, finding a ladies one would be even harder as there were even less ladies riding bikes back in the 80's.

You could try looking on E-bay for an original ...or you could go to a manufacturer who would take measurements and make one up to order (but that would be quite expensive I imagine).

Good luck ...and if you do find one, - you have to post a pic on here of your lady friend wearing it .. ...Two of those suits on this thread would be amazing!

Yeah I figured it was from the 80s was just wondering if it had a model name or something.

I found a similar black version on Ebay that could be tailored but I feel like it needs to be white. Sorry, don't mean to hijack the thread about a suit. I'm sure one will come my way some day.

Hello Kam, Excellent pictures of Sanna Bay mate, looks a lovely place, another must visit place for me sometime, iv'e been as far as Salen on the A861 but sadly didn't go across into the Ardnamurchan area, also enjoyed seeing the Corran ferry again, brought back a nice little memory for me, 3 summers ago about 10 of us on bikes turned up at Oban for the ferry to Mull, the ferry dockers told us they could only fit 5 of us on and the other 5 (me included) would have to wait 6 hours for the next one available, luckily for us we knew we another option of the Lochaline to Fishnish ferry via the Corran ferry, it put maybe an extra 80 miles on clock to get to Mull but a great afternoon was had by all.

Great work mate, well appreciated.

Cheers, Keith.

Sorry I don't know the model name.... if you are prepared to have it tailored I could always ask Stuart if he would sell his..and put you in touch if you want ?

Hi Keith, yeah Mull is great - although the roads aren't really great for sportsbikes ..we have done the ferry to Mull from Lochaline before too. ..we were just there for a day trip and if I remember it right we had to be careful we didn't miss the last one back at 7:00 ..

You must do Sanna Bay ..on a sunny day ...but the road from Salen to Sanna and back is hard going ...beautiful, - but hard going.

We have ADV visitors! ..... from France! .... bubu & Mrs bubu ...






...and what a lovely couple they are ...you couldn't hope to meet nicer folk.


My heart sank when I looked at the weather forecast for the 5 days they would be staying in Scotland - rain! every day! ...and this just after 3 weeks of glorious sunshine!
Luckily it wasn't totally right and we managed to get out all day Friday and Saturday with only one soaking ..and that was for just 10 mins.

On the Friday the best weather was to the south east so I took them to St Marys Loch via Peebles and Sekirk...

yeah that could be an option, how big a dude is he? My gfs about 5'8" and somewhat skinny, so if he's too big it may not look good after cutting a lot out.

You never know though!

Thanks

Lol! Thanks bubu - that is too kind. I am glad that both of you seem to have enjoyed your visit and we will be sad to see you go tomorrow.

Hopefully you will be back ..
