trés jolies photos et trés beau pay.
j'ai visité l'Ecosse dans les années 80 avec un 600 ténéré et j'en gardes un trés bon souvenir.
nous avons été trés bien accueilli par les Ecossais qui nous on fait decouvrir leur spcialitées culinaires et culturelles.
on avait fait ce voyage pour rendre homage à Mary Stuart.

Well, I think it is! It won't hurt your bike.

Unfortunately, IF I will be able to repair it, it will take some time.. The bike stands 70km from home and it's not gonna be easy to work there. Apart from not having the time... But thanks for crossing.

Brilliant,just Brilliant.
As a former Dubliner,by way of Bugbrooke Northampton for a year(she had her hooks in me,what can I say)there`s nuthin like those Scottish roads for a truly spectacular day out.
Fantastic RR,ditto on the pics,what a wonderfull set of memories you have stirred up.
I left that side for good in `86 and have only been back once in `90,thats the last time !!.Good Gawd,it`s been awhile.
But thanks for bringin all those flavors flooding back.
I used to ride Enduro in the Glen `O the Downs in Wicklow when I lived there,similar scenery..................Murf.
I raise me glass to ye......

Merci! Glad you like the pics. If you were here in the 80's maybe it's time for another trip. You are right about the Scots being great people and they do have a rich heritage and culture ... although I am not so sure about the 'culinary bit' Lol!

You are welcome. Still keeping them crossed. I hope you get it sorted ... life just wouldn't be the same without a bike!.. especially as summer is on it's way.

Outstanding! I've got a big Nikon outfit that lives in my sock drawer while my little Canon digital travels everywhere with me. Nice work.

I fully understand this sad sentiment:

A85 incident again ..this is what happens when car-driving tourists stop in the middle of the road, without indicating ..and dither over whether to pull into a layby or not!

I lived in Wyoming for many years and rode Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks a lot. Ferking tourists would just stop in the middle of the road, get out of the car (or motorhome!!!), leave all the doors open, and wander off to check out the scenery or wildlife. I learned to be very very cautious on blind curves...

This is an area that has always interested me, hopefully I'll get to visit some day!

Doug

Thanks .. got to love those wee 'powershots'.

I suppose it's one of the problems with living in an area full of natural beauty ..... you have to 'take the rough with the smooth' and put up with the tourists it attracts. This pic was taken at Glen Coe whilst we waited for the road to re-open after a tourist drove off the road down a ditch whilst looking at the scenery!



The Police finaly getting the offending vehicle up out of the ditch and loaded on a rescue truck


Meanwhile the queue behind has built up ...


Of course every cloud has a silver lining ...and the benefit was that thanks to the road being shut for 45 mins ..and the fact all the bikes filtered up to the front .. it meant that when they did release us we had a clear road ahead for the next 30 miles to Tyndrum with no other traffic getting in the way ... just sportsbikes enjoying the curves.

Oh Boy! - Can't wait ...first rideout of the season happening later today .... it's been a long time coming, this has been the worst winter in Scotland for over 40 years! But if the weather is as nice as yesterday (and forecast says it should be) it's going to be great .... took these at Loch Lomond yesterday .... a chunk of the Loch is still frozen ..






Guess there is probably a story behind this ... flowers in Loch Lomond ice ..it struck me as rather poignant ... whoever they are for - 'God bless you'.

[quote = Kamchat] Merci! Glad you like the pics. Si tu étais là dans les années 80 peut-être qu'il est temps pour un autre voyage. Vous avez raison sur les Ecossais sont des gens formidables et ils ont un riche patrimoine et culture ... bien que je ne suis pas si sûr Lol 'bit culinaires'!

[/ quote]

je reviendrai en Ecosse au niveau culinaire en France on est les champions du monde,mais chaques pays à ces spécialités ce qui fait la richesse de notre planete,pandant mon séjour j'ai connu une petite Ecossaise qui ma fait decouvrir un autre paysage de l'Ecosse je ne là reverai pas mais j'en garde un bon souvenir

Just joined this thread.....great photos !!!

I stumbled upon this quite by accident....what beautiful scenery. I and my wife, along with her cousin and the cousin's husband (follow all that?) are planning to visit your fine country next year. We are all from the Great Lakes area of USA and we will be stuck in a cage for the trip.... I still think that touring those roads pictured will be a great idea. We will do our best to not block traffic.....on or OFF the road. I'm totally mistified as to where we will be staying at, for our base of operations. The wife and cousin are in Cancun this week, so I'll have to get them planning this one when they get back. We are all excited to get a chance to see beautiful Scotland.
