Winter is almost here ! ... It was 4C this morning on the way to work.
Yesterday we didn't get out for our usual full day rideout due to rain ..however a few of us met up for breakfast ..... Jimmy has had his Triumph painted (pics taken with my phone)...... looking good...





I'll get some better shots of it next time we are out ..although that might be next year now winter is 'knocking on the door'.

Just enjoying my saturday morning scottish browse mate, yet more great piccy's!!, excellent shots from the ullapool to durness section, on a personal sad note i'm not going to make my intended autumn highland fling now due to the boring tedious stuff in life so it's looking like next easter time is the next time i'll be up in the far north but i'm sure this great thread will keep me chomping at the bit. Big thumps up on Jimmy's triumph, i like it lots, thinking of maybe treating myself to a new/newer bike next year and a triumph is at the top of my list at the present time, on a bike note must also mention 5cotty's 250lc, this picture brought back very fond memories of the early 80's for me, in the 80's i owned 3 lc's and a ypvs but my first love was my bog standard blue and white 250lc, isn't nostalgia great!!, you can just blank out the bad days and remember the good ones, ha ha!!!.

Great stuff as always mate.

Cheers. Keith.

No problem, I will try next time I see the bike ...although it may be a while now (we are all but done for this year with winter knocking on the door.... so it may not be till next spring. Also Jimmy has three bikes - ZZR1400, the Triumph and a MV F4...so again it depends on which one he turns up on when we next meet).

Thanks mate. Hope to see you up here in spring. ..the thread will probably go a bit quiet over the winter ...but will see what weird weather we get ...it's been all over the place this year so who knows - maybe we will get some 20C days in Nov! Lol! (It happened in March! - so anything is possible).

Took this in a bar in Ulapool a few weeks ago - they seemed to have a decent choice of whiskys (I counted about 70)

You may be interested to know - the Waverley is back home..... she arrived back in Glasgow late on Saturday night for her winter 'hibernation' - but not before doing one last trip for the year on Sunday...... Sarah took her parents for a sail on her and being the last of the year she was fully loaded!...I took some pics on the day ....

leaving Glasgow Science centre -



I got this one looking down from the Erskine Bridge 40 mins later ...



As luck would have it Sarah and her parents took this one looking up from the boat at the same time ...you can see my silhouette on the bridge Lol!.....


and her 'reversing' out of Helensburgh.....

us guys from the warmer side of the world will just have keep posting.
I have included a couple of photos 33yrs apart but somethings remain the same...I still have a Honda & my mate still has a Yamaha, we still ride together...bit of a break during various stages in life, we both ride road & dirt so I hope this is not off topic.

Cheers Terry
