Cool pics again bubu. 'Track day' sounds good (I have never actually done one). I just hope next year work improves over this year so we can get over to France. It's been a bit 'challenging' this year and at the moment seems to be continuing in the same vein ...... I'm sure there is a light at the end of this 'financial crisis' tunnel ...and fingers crossed that 'the light' isn't actually a train coming the other way! Lol!

Hey Kamchat, I am very grateful for your offer! It is so valuable to have a good contact when you are visiting another country. If you intend to go to Sweden, I will of course help you with anything, if I can.

Quite close; I thought my head would be run over the front wheel & was wondering if my Helmet would withstand; gladly there was no necessity to it

Thanks bubu - that's a very kind offer.....I hope though if I come to France I will be riding there with the bike so if all goes to plan I will have my bike with me. But I will bear it in mind should we end up travelling by car for some reason.

Thanks again.

Cheers Aargee ..some cool pics there ...I like the one of the group with all the bikes lined up ...it looks like you have a good gang of riding buddies there .... Nothing beats going for a rideout with a crew of good friends to share the fun with.
I guess Busas are pretty rare on the roads there? It doesn't look like some of those road surfaces are the best for riding a Busa on!
In fact I would have thought the perfect tool would be something like the big GS BMW's for a mixture of on / off road riding?.. Are they popular? ..or is the cost high for BMW's in India.
Those Royal Enfields are on sale here in the UK ..I know someone who recently bought one. They are supposed to be quite good if you like a more relaxed style of riding and love the 'nostalgia' feel of old Brit bikes.....without all the hassle and leaking oil!

Catching up with pics ...Last Thursday it was a lovely evening so after work Sarah and I took a run down to Largs on the Ayrshire coast for fish n chips ..It's a popular evening destination for bikers....

Bikes on the front





Some guys had ridden down on their 'monkey bikes'...


A bit of a culture clash ..the funfair and the church on Largs sea front...



Sarah enjoying her fish n chips from the Viking Fish Bar....



After a walk along the front it was time to finish off with some ice cream from 'the world famous' (apparently) Nardini's ..... they do have a huge range of ice creams ..and they are damn fine.



Sarah deliberating over which flavours to go for ...we ended up with a mix of scoops - Belgian chocolate / Rum and Raisin, Double Vanilla and Coconut.....


On the way home the road climbs teeply up the hillside at the back of the town ...we stopped to take in the view over Millport.....

Luckily I was also able to get out on Sunday too.....
Because rain was forecast to the north and west (our usual playground) we headed south and east to St Marys Loch for a change ...unfortunately this means the first leg of the run is on the M74 motorway to get down to the good roads quickly ...

Then up the A702 to Biggar



Stopped at temporary traffic lights ..Dave comes forward to let us know we are missing Andy who got stuck at lights further back..luckily he knew where we were heading for our first fuel stop and met up with us there...



Through Biggar ..


and on to Peebles ....









We weren't the only ones out on two wheels



Arriving in Peebles..


For our first fuel stop.... and met up again with Andy and Mark ...

Flashback

What fun to see roads that I have been to!
Last year, when the deal with the Guzzi was done in Glasgow, I drove to stay overnight on "Hassendean Bed and Breakfast" near Hawick. A very familiar B&B owned by the supernice couple Janet and Les Ross. I drove through Biggar and Peebles and then come to Selkirk where I stayed at "Tony's Tower" to eat delicious fish and chips. Tasted extra good because I had not eaten anything since I left Sweden. Hunger is the best cook. Continued the next day through Northumberland National Park and further to the port of Immingham. I really enjoyed my short trip on your beautiful roads.

Good to hear the pics brought back happy memories. If/when you return you must come and ride the roads to the north west of Glasgow for a real 'treat'.
When we were at St Marys Loch on Sunday there were a couple of nice Guzzis there..
