You never know though!

Thanks
It might work. Stuart is quite slim build and I reckon he is about 5'10" ... I will ask him next time I see him if he would consider selling.

Pics from Fiday continued .... at St Marys Loch there is this odd statue just sitting in the woods looking down over the Loch ...It is of James Hogg a local shepherd who later became a poet ...there can't be many shepherds who have such grand statues in their honour.... He now looks down on land he used to tend sheep on ...

They say you shouldn't meet folk off the 'tinternet'....... but so far they have been wrong .... they have all turned out to be great folk.

..I'm sure there must be 'internet friends' to be found in Australia too ? ... it's a huge place.

Unfortunately we did finally run into the forecast rain showers ... but by this time we had had our fun and were heading back to Glasgow ...

Stopping to 'suit up' as we could see heavy showers ahead ...





Trouble ahead ....



Luckily when we hit the rain, although it was heavy with water running down the road, it was short lived and over in about 10 mins ....we arrived back in Glasgow to find more sunshine waiting for us .... but it's always sunny in Glasgow ..

Yes Kam, many internet friends...what is funny is meeting up with fellow riders & finding out they are on ADVrider or DBW forums & then discovering their real names !!!!

I think bike riders the world over are a friendly bunch & share a common pastime & love of bikes.

Absolutely ..... on several occasions I have had strangers come to me on rideouts when we have been stopped in Oban or The Green Welly and ask - 'are you Kamchat' ? ..and strike up a conversation. They have usually recognised the bikes from the pics on here. .. and it's a small world at times.

After our trip to St Marys Loch on the Friday we had a full day out with bubu and Mrs bubu on the Saturday, riding up to show them Glen Coe and castle Stalker etc..

Mark (guccikins), who also met us through ADV over a year ago and has since become a good friend, also joined us on his R1 .... so it was a mini ADV rideout.

Saturday :-

Meeting Mark in Callander ...'You have been warned!' :-



All the 'onboard pics were taken by Sarah on Saturday, as she had to ride pillion due to her bike being in need of a new alternator.
bubu just north of Tyndrum on the A82 (he had removed all their hard luggage for the day's ride)

Hi bubu ...

good pics ...your bike was looking a lot cleaner in Zeebrugge than I remember seeing it it. Good to see you got home safe and sound .....

It was pleasure spending time with you and Bernadette..... as mentioned before, you are welcome back anytime ...there are still plenty of great roads and locations we didn't get a chance to show you.

Cheers

Kam & Sarah
