I mentioned to my wife that Scotland looks like a great place to take the bike, and the first comment out of her mouth was the "Rain". Of course I would gladly take rain over the snow. However when the summer arrives in Canada it makes for the best three days of riding you could ever imagine

Lol! about the 'three days' ...feels the same here - we do get a lot of rain it seems ... but when it's dry this place is biking heaven and all the crappy wet days make you really appreciate the good ones.

As for police BMW's, true they do like them .... unfortunately some are 'unmarked' ...here is the last one that did me for speeding.

Your Dad is right! .. and a bike is the best way to see it .... just not in Oct/Nov/Dec/Jan/Feb/ and Mar.

Thanks for the very kind offer re: the 'house-swap'... Now there's an idea! I might just take you up on that sometime. No more overseas holidays for us at the moment though whilst we fight our way out of 'recession' in the UK (we are already scheduled to do the Nurburgring later this year ..and a trip to France) ... however business is picking up at the moment so 'watch this space' .

sounds like the beginning of a great master plan

Is your "gixxergirl" is on a 750?....I hope she wouldn't be too disappointed with a swap for a 600? But there are a few of other bikes in the garage to choose from (if you'd like to play in the dirt or take a scenic adventure ride).

The infamous "dragon" is only a couple of hours from where we live, along with many many many other great roads. And there are several tracks within a few hours drive (nothing like Nurburgring I'm sure).

teasers:



600 is pretty quick too

Looking awesome! Gixxer looks good to!

Would love to do 'the Dragon' ... I look in on the 'Killboy site' regularly.
I recognise you and that bike - have you had pics on Killboy or BARF?

Would be great if the swap was possible ..will see how the year goes 'business wise'. Otherwise, if you are planning to tour the UK / Scotland make sure you come to Glasgow and do some rides with us (we have a spare room if you need somewhere to stay for a few nights).


Oh and to answer your question yes, Sarah (my gixxergirl) has a 750 ...she has rides my my 1000 from time to time :-

What season is this and is the A85 in the back ground? Looks a bit chilly out.

Hi there ..The pic was taken mid March in spring. The picture was taken at the Rest and be Thankful. The road is the A83 (you can just see it in the left of the pic ..the 'road' in the middle of the valley floor is an old track)

Wow! What a beautiful place to ride, and you've captured it well!

Nice bikes too.

That Yorkhill Egg Run, what is that? I've never seen that many sportbikes crammed in one street. Very cool!
