;D as long as he disnae pop a wheelie !!
Farcebook ----- work of the devil !
Without wishing to offend anybody ----- >:(
Whilst it's convenient to refer to groups of roads by Tourist Board acronyms I really do dislike their use.
The roads were all there before and I doubt if anybody on here did not know that before the marketing boys got involved.
I have it from a few folk who live along the Ullapool/Tongue/Lairg/Thurso area that crowds of cyclists and chains of car groups are becoming a problem. Too many of them in a bunch to get into passing places and let folk wanting to make progress and get to work.
The service industry folk on the other hand are of course delighted.
I just put up a wee post in trips and am still hoping to catch another day or two out before parking the bike up for the winter and sticking to hill walking for a month or two.
I have been trying to think up wee things to do to the Tiger over the Winter but not come up with much as I have already done all I could think of.
Glad to hear that The Mountie has got the 2017 Quest sorted. I might try to do it more slowly next year and avoid "work around solutions" I did finally find a real hairy caterpillar, on the pier at Ballantrae's wee harbour, a couple of weeks ago !
A bunch of us are thinking of South West Ireland and I am trying to convince them that the weather will be better in Ireland The Second Last Weekend in May , rather than the last ! None of them want to camp which is a bummer tho !
LWR and The Mountie ---- keep taking the pills !
I filled up with petrol at the Lochgilphead Tesco today.
So what you say !
I sat on the bike and filled up; my mate pulled up as I finished fueling, sat on the bike, started to fuel and the pump got cut off.
Explanation ---- you must dismount to fuel ,HandS etc.
I guess I was out of their eyeline so fuelled problem free ---but it was def a first for that Petrol station. ???
I guess we will just use the petrol station at the other end of the town from now on.
Glad to see you back on the bike.
Maybe you could run a masterclass on the mysteries of Claybar and Detailing at the next Rally!
I arrived at Strontian on the Thursday afternoon and Wilbur invited me to set up the tent near his.
We spoke frequently over the w'end and I got to find him a friendly ,open, sincere man.
:o Great PIC of the pony in the truck !
Stu flagged up that he is aware his recovery is limited .
Don't get caught thinking you have recovery when the policy says " nearest garage or place of safety up to 15 miles".
I have a mate who only read that small print after buying the policy
. If you trundle around the West Highlands a recovery policy like that is next to useless.
Mountie, fully comp ?
That seems remarkably cheap for Carole Nash ---- I have been with them and they always seemed similar to Bennets.
Any special discounts involved ?

I went to the Alford bike thing today ---- what a great day out it was.
The bike racing was hilarious and exciting !
If trying to get Mr Honda to go, ---- mmmmm (in Japanese) maybe there is a problem here---------, is an aspiration read the stuff still bring posted about Kevin Ash's accident on the 1200GS in 2013. :(.
Stop re-analysing the analysis !!
Clearly feeling better !
Anybody on here got plans to go to the Bike day on 4th Sept ??
I hope you are back "North" by now. Remember to do exactly what the Physio says and not your own "programme".
Best wishes for a smooth recovery.
P.S. Use the time to come up with a difficult 2017 Quest !!
Thanks for the responses; Sounds like the ------ Jim Rides This and Outrunner's ------ consensus is the Olive Tree , LHS from the South.
