Hi there, live in the shadow of Benacchie, but not a local. :D
Obviously not....you spelt Bennachie wrong! ;)
My spelling was an amalgamation of how it's said, plus spelt, with a hint of English pronunciation :lol:

Re: Accident advice needed

Probably worthwhile asking the advice from a lawyer who specialises in motorbikes, for example: https://www.whitedalton.co.uk/

What will be of help is if there were any witnesses I'd guess.

Re: Low seat height best bike advice

Assuming it's adventure styled bikes only that you're looking at, then maybe the Honda CB500x?

Re: Lights on?

You can tell from this comment that I know nothing about electrics but surely charging a battery pack off the bike's system is more of a draw than a couple of itty bitty bulbs. Power in watts is equal to amps x volts. So a 55w headlight is pulling 55/12 amps or just over 4.5 amps. Most battery pack...

Re: R1150gs

The Global lids for the OEM panniers add 6 litres a side, which makes the left hand one useful.

North East 250

Jumping onto the NC500 bandwagon, just seen this: http://www.northeast250.com/ Some good ideas for things to see, especially if you think the east of Scotland doesn't have anything of interest to see / do. I'm sure that there's one for the south west of Scotland, ie Dumfries and Galoway area as well.
