OK, by email we have a few replies already.

attending:
Paul The Baker (about 1pm)
MJA (JohnnyAlpha) - Darkside K75 or FJ1200?
Robert Burns

and "interested":
Ken Russell - Deauville

We also got apologies from our glorious leader Darryl who is doing Vanlife stuff somewhere.

So far, I think MARK is the only CX attending, if so he shouldn't be buying his own cuppas.

Fingers crossed for the weather...

Just as an aside the Classic Motorcycle Show in Ayr is taking place on 30th June. I'll probably be taking the CX along to that as well.

Lovely day out! Lawrie now describes hinself as the colour of "gammon" and I am feeling a little fried. Beautiful weather and great company. TWO CXs too! Smashing round trip including me doing the same 27 miles of the A701 THREE times, after a misunderstanding led me to go back looking for MJA, who had stuck to the plan and turned OFF the A701 to Biggar in search of petrol.
Final count:
Mark and Katrina Grandad's CX500 ZAB (sorry, I never know which)
MJA K75
Victor/Colin K75
Lawrie Wing GL650
Paul BMW GS1200
Bren XBR500

Robert, I hope you got your scoot fixed, and Ken, I hope you did sonething lovely today (ie disntbreak down on the way to us).

Photos already on fb I am told, maybe we will get some here too.

Mark is attending Ayr Classic Show, 30th June, great event in the past but I can't go this year. Maybe others will?

A great trip to St Mary's Loch, thanks to Mark and Brendan for setting it up. Just a shame that you get the "Nutters" out giving Biking a bad name.
I had a great ride home on Monday taking the Scenic route over Glenshee and down into Braemar then Ballater. The Glenshee Lodge is still a
burned out wreck surrounded by security fencing, so I don't see us having a Scottish Rally there in the near future.

On the BBC, I noticed that the petrol station in Penicuik that me, Lawrie, and Colin went to on the way home HAS BEEN ROBBED BY A GUY WITH A MACHETE:

Apparently, police are seeking a shortish white-haired man with a northern English accent who fled the scene on a GL. They were unable to give further details as his face was covered with a balaclava...
