I guess the idea only works if on any given day people can travel to a central point in approx the same time.
The location of forum members is well spread over the country.
SteveT tried to organise a meet recently (Glen Lyon) but I don't think he got a response.
::) I have stolen the title from another forum.
Almost certainly the wrong time of year to launch it here.
The other forum has a basic premise for the events ---- no weans (made that up), the Lunch must be Monday to Friday, no tea (made that up as well).
Anyway a good idea is a good idea -- can it fly on here ? Snuff folk interested ? Could we find venues to give all of the lunchers decent runs out ??
Answers not on a postcard !!
Steve T did you get to Ireland last September :-\ ??
I have just been reading Andy Outrunner's ;D guide to the cliffs and saw your posts ----
Andy, I enjoyed your story.
;D. Good to see a big smile for the fotie.
There are of course many European equivalents --- Fairytale route, Wine route, that I have shamelessly researched !
I picked up a thread on an Irish forum where the Irish poster suggested the WAW was a creative figment that used many roads that the Irish Eirish only used to escape the west coast to find an Airport to take them to work
;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 ?
Sofnolime , would you expand the DTL ?
Bennets who selected Zenith Insurance PLC.
Includes ------ Protected no Claims, legal expenses, breakdown cover ("complimentary" EU) , Brokers arrangement fee.
Â£600 compulsory excess.
2015 Triumph Tiger, with the value recorded as Â£9200.

Be interesting to see what this topic yields.
Press and Journal !!
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. :(.
