Few more from last Sunday ....

The two S1000RR's in the group ....

Gary's



and now Scot (no.2) has one too.....got it last month to replace his R1...these BMW's are becoming a popular choice .. which is no surprise given how good they are and that they keep winning all the Magazine Group Tests....



Alan (R1) on the road back to Tyndrum ....



Crossing the Connel Bridge north of Oban ..looking back at Alan and Patrick...


Scot (no.1) on his 're-vamped' gixxer 1000.....looking good.





Warning of a cyclist on the bend ahead.....

The weather this week has been fantastic ....
Last night was another warm one, so Sarah, Jeni and I went up to Strathyre for an evening run ....we picked up Mark (Guccikins on here) in Callander and met up with the happy band of 'reprobates' that make up the Carbeth Knitting Club in Strathyre.

27C - too hot for these leathers....



Jeni (GSXR600) and Sarah ...

Our blue n white gixxers - the full family - 750, 600 & 1000.



Mark's carbon R1...just back from 4000 mile trip round Europe .... and off to be photographed for 'Fast Bike' mag next week...



Arriving in Strathyre ....



Scot's gixxer ...



..with Andy's new Blade.....everyone is changing their bikes!



This Italian biker was touring on his Triumph and stopped by.





Unfortunately not everyone had a good night ...passed this on the way home just south of Aberfeldy .. hope the rider is ok.........I guess it wasn't too bad - as they usually close the road for hours otherwise.

I was sitting eating some lunch today in Glencoe and this guy passed. Looks like him and all the tourists have won the weather lottery.

It sure is a 'small world' - and lucky you up in Glencoe yesterday ..some of us were stuck in a roasting office! .....But no worries coz it's now the weekend and the weather looks fine for both days .....'Game On'.

Thanks, it's much apreciated glad you like the thread/pics.
I probably take around 150+ pics on a full day's ride-out and 50 ish on an evening one
I am not a good photographer - but if I take enough pics I always end up with a handful of decent one's. ..it's the great thing about the digital age - it costs nothing to take loads of pics ..... I remember the bad old days of taking my 35mm film to 'Boots' to get it developed and being restricted to 24 pics at a time ...or 36 on a roll if you were feeling rich.

.. and yes, you are very welcome to come and ride anytime.
