Great! I have always liked to travel on small bikes in the past, I do have an xtz660 sat in the garage but the c90 is the machine for the job! Travel slow see more right?

Also good luck on buying a c90 they hold top dollar! I blame ed march for this!

Will do another update later on

We heading into town and looked for a cafe for some, breakfast and coffee,
We found the local campshop and it had cafe above perfect!
We sat and drank our coffee and ate our bacon rolls in the morning sunshine... Sun in Scotland... Yea right haha

Anyway while sat there we had a couple come in to the cafe to find us and ask about the c90s parked our side, they where on a big triumphs at a meet they held each year in Ullapool, they where impressed and asked for a couple of photos and then we headed our separates ways, them heading north and us south to gairloch to a friends of ours, I do think they wish they where on c90s there just so fun.

Filling our tanks and our touratwat extra tanks strapped to our bikes we pulled out and headed south along the coast.

While buzzing along at 45/50mph we got overtaken by most veichals on the road but we just plodded along, a few miles up the roads the and we cought a bunch of guys on big BMW'S and yamaha's in the bends, it was then Bernard stared to over take them! Well you don't slow down on a c90.

We stopped about half way to gairloch and I asked Bernard if his rear brake light worked... We checked it and yes it did work fine, his replie was I don't use them!! Even I used them!

Heading into gairloch we met up with Ian and headed to his place for the night,

Will update more in the next update.

I recognise that lay-by. Is it not overlooking Little Loch Broom just off the A832 by Durnamuck? (Middle photo two posts up)
