What I have learnt is that it's not really a good idea to be at the front of a group.

Cheers ......Yes, the police that stopped us earlier in the afternoon for 'safety checks' told us they were only stopping bikes!. Doesn't seem right or fair.

Bummer about the potential licence loss Kam. The one consolation that I will offer (looking for a positive here !) is that thankfully none of you were involved in that accident with the chevron sign. I guess it could always be worse if you get my drift.
In the meantime, safe riding and keep the pics coming !

Thanks mate ...you are absolutely right - no matter how shitty things get there is always someone in a worse situation....you only need to watch the news on TV to put everything into perspective.

Despite the 'hassle' last week we were back out again yesterday. As well as some of the regulars we had visitors, one from Yorkshire and another from Northern Ireland joining us for day.



Dave, up visiting from Yorkshire - hence the luggage...

Kam,
What position are you in when you take your pics - normal sports bike riding position ? Or do you hold the camera lower and aim loosely ?
The blurring of the road surface gives a nice motion effect.

Hi, - I like the way a low level shot captures the action better often..so yes sometimes I lie flatter on the tank so I can reach further down ....a bonus on left-handers is the bike is already leaned over giving an even lower angle ...



..and as you have noted, - the closer the camera is to the ground the more the tarmac blurs.....

Ha ha .... but you will still find it makes quite a difference in angle if you hunch down over the tank and drop your arm straight down alongside the side of the bike to shoot a pic. ...(Not that I am advocating any of this 'shenanigans' to anybody of course.)

A few more from Sunday .... our lunch destination was the Clachaig Inn just off the A82 at Glen Coe....

At the turning...



I sent the others on ...



...whilst I waited for one of our visitors to make sure he didn't miss the turning ...(understandably he had stopped further back to get some pics of the scenery going through Glen Coe).
