Over the 600 miles now, the WMR around to Lochinver was good for the gear change and accelerating decelerating bit.

Been watching the forecast so guessed it would be a good one, bit chilly on the A95 but pleasant afterwards, not too warm and the visibility was superb. Would have been nice to climb Stac Pollidah, but that can wait for the next sunny day. Not sure which decade that'll be in!

Knew that I could get to Ullapool in three hours, but going out and straight back seemed to be a bit of a waste. Did wonder how the backside and legs would enjoy the hours on the bike, but it was so enjoyable I think that I forgot to worry about it. No great aches or pains afterwards, though a small screen would have been nice when on some of the faster bits.

Hopefully the weather will be just as h=good for the various forums trips to Ullapool this month.

Hope you're keeping well Steve.

Glad your finally able to give the little machine a bit more abuse . . . . . . . I mean use ;)

All well thanks - popped into ARI and took eldest out for a tour of the cities dealers this afternoon. Ecosse managed to find a bike like yours still in stock down south. Couldn't come up with a price, but it's got me a-thinking :roll: ;)

Hope to see you on the road some time.
