It's not a big bike! it is not a big heavy four cylinder like the others...

Yes, you are absolutely right. I just felt a bit sorry for the Mv, that it wasn't noticed in the pic.

Thanks, that front 'mudguard is very 'distinctive' .. I guess it must work ok though.
As for the single track lane ... yes, and it got more fun as it started to wind it's way down some steep declines to the reservoir below ... these pics don't really do it justice....

Narrow road, sheep and cars .... not the best combination to exploit the maximum fun from a 1000cc sportsbike...



However the A701 down to Moffat IS the perfect road to enjoy a 1000cc sportsbike on ...and we did ..unfortunately I put the camera away to fully partake of the experience.

At moffat it was time for afternoon tea...... they do have sheep too but this one doesn't move much! ...just watches over the bikes from 'on high'.





Quite a few other bikes about ...this Aprilia RSV4 tagged along with us for the return 'blast' back up the A701 ....

Stevie sporting a new look in head gear.

and on to the 'bend-fest' that is the A85 east from Loch Earnhead as it winds it's way round the contours of the Loch..

That's not too bad - it was 5C when I jumped on the bike this morning...
It's bloody cold at nights now. During the day it gets up to 20C, though. Weird.
But yeah, summer's definitely over.

Just to keep the thread running... ;)

Not the same caliber as the bikes running in this thread.. But the pic is at a historic moment :)

First time ever my daughter ride a motorcycle. She has just started to practice driving, for a driver's license. You can not miss out on how happy she is inside the helmet. Feels good with a small contribution to the regeneration of bikers.
