Thanks for the great comment, It's great to know you are still enjoying the thread ..and certainly encourages me to 'keep it up'.


A contrast on Sunday .....separated by a few yards in the car park ..and a hundred years .....

Huge cannons .....




...a rather slimmer profile ..and a distinct lack of any 'huge cannons'...

It makes me want to do two things:

1. Get an SS bike again, for twisty fun rides.
2. Put Scotland on my my must ride some day bucket list.
My thoughts exactly! I love your pics.

We may be silent, but I believe that you have a very large following.

..and your posts don't ruin the thread ..quite the opposite from my perspective.
Also been reading this thread for a few years, love the photos of Scotland & the bikes of course.
Might be over in Scotland later in the year but won't be on a bike (hire car perhaps) have not worked out the details but been taking note of the areas you travel to.

Cheers Terry

Thank you! .... I'm 'well chuffed' to hear you love the pics. I'm not sure about a 'large' following but I am really pleased that there are some folk like your good self who keep popping in to have a look and post ..it's much appreciated.

Today - Some of the guys were heading up to Applecross for the weekend. Sarah and I decided to meet up with them and ride up part of the way to Tyndrum for lunch.

Gordon's friend Gary on the big GSX1400...



Passed this BMW trike on the way up to Tyndrum...



When you arrive in Tyndrum you are welcomed by a road-side wooden bear ...





Saying farewell at The Welly, the guys rode on north, Sarah and I headed to The Real Food Café for some lunch ...



The Café has recently had a new extension built to replace the previous canvas one.... it's a great place to get a bite to eat and there is a great view from the comfortable new dining area.



The A82 leaving Tyndrum heading back east and south.

Just saying thanks!

This thread is one of my favorites. It very often inspires me to go out and take the KTM SMT around for a spin.

It has also contributed to me making plans for a 4-5 day roadtrip with a few riding buddies ,from the Netherlands to Scotland possibly next spring.
Planning to take the nightboat from IJmuiden to Newcastle and go from there.
Needles to say that the way you have been and still are 'painting' the fabulous scenery , adds to the desire to visit Scotland.

If it isn't to much of a burden it would be so kind if you would occasionally point out some motorbike friendly B&B's in the area, that would be appreciated.



So...keep posting them great pics

Erik.

Hi Kam,

Thanks for the tip on buying tickets for the Hunters Quay ferry BUT we got an even better deal off the guy on the ferry. He sold us a book of tickets for £28 that was for 7 of us with 7 bikes. Just thought it may come in useful if there are that many of you next time. Had a fantastic week in Scotland the weather was pretty good only two showery mornings. Thanks again.

Cheers Glenn.
