A few from last Sunday ...as you can see the day started dry and bright - if a tad 'chilly' .... Nine of us got out for a run up to Tyndrum and Inveraray ...

Leaving Glasgow in bright sunshine





Good to know our guardian angel watches over us ...

[QUOTE=Kamchat;19774975]Another pic from our trip north ...this is the A835 heading back to Ullapool


Of course there is plenty of spectacular scenery further south in our usual 'stamping grounds' too...this was taken on the same trip ..just north of Tyndrum from the A82

I love it how you give the names/numbers of the Hyways so I can get on google maps to see where youve been.
Fantastic this forum and this thread!
Thanks again

Thanks bubu - I agree, sometimes 'black n white' looks better.

Cheers for that ... I put the road details in so anyone who fancies riding them can find them. ... It's good to hear that you are looking them up on line.

Few more for you from last Sunday ..on one of our usual routes ... the A85 near Lix Toll (the junction with the A827)

You have sun, you have a lot of chance

The Jota was another one of my boyhood 'dream bikes' ...never did get to ride one ...that one looks slightly odd ...I think it is down to the headlight having being dropped lower.

Winter is almost here ! ... It was 4C this morning on the way to work.
Yesterday we didn't get out for our usual full day rideout due to rain ..however a few of us met up for breakfast ..... Jimmy has had his Triumph painted (pics taken with my phone)...... looking good...





I'll get some better shots of it next time we are out ..although that might be next year now winter is 'knocking on the door'.

Just enjoying my saturday morning scottish browse mate, yet more great piccy's!!, excellent shots from the ullapool to durness section, on a personal sad note i'm not going to make my intended autumn highland fling now due to the boring tedious stuff in life so it's looking like next easter time is the next time i'll be up in the far north but i'm sure this great thread will keep me chomping at the bit. Big thumps up on Jimmy's triumph, i like it lots, thinking of maybe treating myself to a new/newer bike next year and a triumph is at the top of my list at the present time, on a bike note must also mention 5cotty's 250lc, this picture brought back very fond memories of the early 80's for me, in the 80's i owned 3 lc's and a ypvs but my first love was my bog standard blue and white 250lc, isn't nostalgia great!!, you can just blank out the bad days and remember the good ones, ha ha!!!.

Great stuff as always mate.

Cheers. Keith.
