Trip to Scotland.

Postby Knowles01 » Thu May 31, 2018 9:35 pm

Hi Guys, Firstly a big Thank You to everyone for the Burnley Rally really enjoyed it. I think I may have mentioned a couple of times during the weekend that I was going from the rally North to tour sunny Scotland. Well apart from falling off at the start :lol: I managed to complete the trip 12 days and approx 1850 miles. (Which is more miles than the bike has done in the last 20 years) I say approx as the Speedo packed up on the Isle of Arran. Apart from that the bike never missed a beat. The weather was fantastic and the Scottish Highlands were superb. It would have taken a few days less except for the amount of people stopping with the usual I used to have one of these etc. Anyway just thought I would let you know it was a success and it really was great to meet so many of you at Burnley . And if you haven't done the North Coast 500 you need to get out there, it really is superb. Ride Safe Alan.

Well-done Alan - you certainly got the best weather we've had in a while. I can second the NC500, and indeed Arran ("Scotland in Miniature"). If I'd known you were around, perhaps we could have got you to our wee meet last Sunday.

Thanks Eric, this looks really great. I take it the weather is always like this? Only problem is my wife has threatened all kinds on me if I go to Ireland without her. Her great grandparents were from Cork and Waterford so looks like a trip over in the car first.
