Yes saw you'd posted one of the same castle. Great place to stop after the long haul up from Fort William. Loads of bikers there when I stopped, spoke to Canadians and Romanians heading to Skye. Only last month but seems ages ago now.

Fantastic biker country, love Glencoe, was going to stay there on way home from Skye (Clachaig Inn), but  stupidly dropped my bike in kyle of lochalsh and was ferried to Inverness for repair. I then rode home via Cairngorms, Perth, Edinburgh etc.  A brilliant trip, but was so lucky with good weather. It would have been grim otherwise. Planning is key.

Great pics and as said Scotland is a great country. It's not always down to planning though. Andy and I went up for a week in May, when we booked the accomodation 2 weeks before we went it was snowing and minus 7 where we were going. Our week was totally dry, there were no midges, and the temperature was up to 27 on one day. The locals said it was unheard of for May.

Planning is good but luck is better.   :bgrin :nahnah :dancing

The road through Glencoe was spectacular.

Agreed it's a wonderful place to tour. Not seen photos of your bike before, and it definitely stands out!

Nice. How are you getting on with your new bike?

itís great, a right laugh and quicker than youíd think, I was surprised at how good the little engine is. it feels like a V twin and is definitely feels more powerful/torquier than my Hyperstrada.
typically the suspension isnít brilliant but itís a budget bike and a Yamaha so wasnít expecting much.
mine did come with loads of extras so Iíve spent nothing on it other than a cheap standard exhaust for modíing.

Glad you're enjoying it m8.
Who knows, I might get to see it up close and personal one day.
If I haven't sold up b4 hand that is.
On the verge of selling mine. Maybe get something cheap and cheerful, that I don't mind sitting around for weeks b4 I decide to go for a spin.
