'The Torpedo' was the fourth member of the group turning up on his Kwak ZX6R which has also been 'customised' in his own 'unique style' Lol!

Sunday afternoon found us out on Duncryne Hill at Gartocharn .... the bluebells are out ....









Even though it's not a big hill it still affords a fine view from the top....



although it is a tad 'muddy going' at the start...

Tires!

Hi Kam,
Took your advice. Since my Pilot Powers gave up I opted for the Pilot Road 3s for my ZX-14. Can't wait to abuse them this weekend!
Coming home from the shop they felt light and neutral...but don't all new tires feel great??? They do to me!
Jon

Hi Jon, I hope you like them and they suit the ZX-14. The guys I know who are using them really love them .... I was out for a ride last night and Mark has just put a new pair on his R1...the previous rear lasted over 9,000 miles ..including touring round Europe last year.... amazing mileage from what is also a pretty grippy tyre.

Last night...

Cheers mate.. ..there is something magical about waterfalls ...we chose to have our lunch at this spot overlooking Bonnington Linn ......



The water level was very low and further down at Corra Linn we were able to scramble down the gorge to get a better view ...briefly ....you don't want to hang about too long as there are signs warning you not to go down as there can be sudden huge surges of water coming downstream depending on the workings at the power station just a mile upstream.
