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

It is not a spent time, but some really great moments!!

Next time with french cheeses, good wine, chips for Sarah, and ...

That's some contrast on the 'boats' .....and yes, bringing the bikes in the van up the boring motorways sounds like a plan - no need to bother about rain or fix luggage - just chuck everything in the van and roll the bikes out intact with perfect tyres to enjoy the miles of twisty roads this end.

As for 'good French wine and cheese' ...we are still enjoying the last batch, thanks again. l

Last pics from Saturday's ride ... after another fill up at Inveraray we headed up to the 'Rest n be Thankful' to enjoy the view ....





..and as it was getting late we decided to round off a perfect day by heading back north up the lochside to have an evening meal at the Drovers - Scotland's oldest Inn.......






A perfect day - good roads, great scenery, no rain & good friends ..

Thanks but those were just simple cheeses and wines.

Hope you like all?
