For the last year I have enjoyed passing the 'A82 Monitor'.... Someone ( a drunk student?) had placed an old computer monitor on the crash barrier right in the centre of the A82 / Great Western Road, - just at the start as you go over the flyover above the M8...

I don't why, but it made me laugh when I saw it ..and have got used to seeing it every morning as I pass by in the rush-hour traffic heading to work.

Unfortunately it has now gone ...after sitting there for a year. .... Things just won't be the same on my morning commute .....

Pics taken with my phone ....

Striking differances

In this part of the world we have two striking differances.
A. We can't wear full leathers in July and
B. We can't put our helmets on the ground without the imported fire ant taking up residence



there is a third and that being, nothing is green, the drought makes sure of that. Scotland sure looks like a great riding venue!

Cheers ...It IS a great riding venue for sure ...... for seven months of the year (April - Oct).... and when it isn't raining ...which it does a lot.
But when all comes together right - it's a 'biking heaven'.

No fire ants to worry about here....but we do have our very own midges which can be a pain sometimes if you are sitting outside on a still summer evening.

I guess we are lucky that we can wear our full leather kit, even in summer without melting though. It's almost unheard of to see temps of anything over 30C. In fact, I think the hottest day we had this past year was the day Sarah and I rode to Sanna Bay and it hit 30C.

Thanks sanaga, well done on getting through the whole thread......I'm really pleased that you liked it.

Yes, you must come over and ride with us when you are able.

Thanks for posting, it's always good to hear from fellow sportbike riders from other parts of the world.
