Well that's further north than me, I've only made it to Glasgow and that was in the works van. I'd love to see the northern lights too.

Me and the missus done Kent to Newcastle and back in a weekend on my Suzuki RF. Left Friday and returned on Sunday.

Whilst up there on the Saturday we rode up to Scotland, I couldn't go all that way and not pop over the border.

err.......... :huh:
i read that as whats the furthest north anyones been on a bike as in guinness book of records furthest north :laugh:
you can only go so far, then you start going south! someone mustve done it. i seem to vaguely remember watching a topgear special a few years ago, think it was the one with the toyo hi-lux to the north pole, and they met a jap on a dirt bike or scooter or something that was doing it.

personally, for me its either on the rideout we did at the first boil rally in cumbria, or the other side at rosedale, north yorks with the XRV crowd. i realise thats home for a lot of you guys but i do live on the south coast, and i prefer to go south its cold oop thar!
i do want to go to one of the ullapool rallies as part of a tour of the highlands. i have driven to eddinburg in the car but 4wheels doesnt count
