post some more pics

My Mom was from Glasgow.
I have relatives in Troon, Edinb., and Isle of Mull.
Many visits to Scotland and always wishing I had my bike with me.
Last trip drove a Vauxhall Vectra that we rented, was very difficult driving as everything is new and unusual from USA. My Mom about crashed car several times so I became the only driver and had a hangover each morning as some very good beer at the pubs. Watch out for the "loose chippings" and yankee tourists in rental cars. Everyone was pulling out onto the roadway and it was really freaking me out...I stopped in at an auto parts store and got some basic driving info that really helped out, I can even go thru a roundabout now.
best wishes,
Doug

Scotland has some of the finest motorcycle roads on the planet, when the sun is out. Riding on Skye should be on everyones list of rides to do. Great images.
