Ha Ha! awesome! ..and just after I had posted to you - 'it's a small world' re: the Italian tourist! ...It's getting smaller still!

Yep, we were heading through Aberfoyle to Stronachlachan at the far end of Loch Katrine....

pics from Stronachlachan pier tea-rooms this afternoon ...














Hopefully our paths will cross again soon and we will get the chance to say 'Hi'....

Amazing! - What are the chances!? ..

It's a shame we hadn't got there half an hour earlier and bumped into you ..it would have been impossible to miss each other as we didn't see another bike the whole 22 miles up and back the nadgery B829.

The Pier café is great and the cake is excellent, the coffee and walnut cake was worth the trip alone according to Sarah...

All four of my grandparents came from Scotland. It's a beautiful place, I wish I could go there sometime, but at 54, my time is running short.

I hope they ride sport bikes more responsibly there than they do here. Sport bike riders here have turned the streets into their own personal race track, and ride without regard for their own or anyone else's safety. They are universally hated by non riders and by riders of other types of bikes. I've heard this doesn't happen much in most of Europe.

Thanks for all the pictures. Ride safe.

Cheers ..you are very welcome ..... and don't say 'time is running out!' - I'm a year older than you!

As for being 'hated' ...yes there are probably some folk who hate us ....but then there are some folk who hate all bikes and bikers ..and who would consider just riding a motorbike as being irresponsible ...it's all matter of personal opinion ..and they are entitled to theirs ..it doesn't bother me, I just get on and enjoy living my life ('haters gonna hate').

Are we irresponsible? We don't speed in towns or villages or in 30 / 40 zones ...out in the countryside we have fun on our bikes - there is no point having a sportsbike if you are going to 'pootle' about on it all day...that's not what they are made for.

Equally, some folk like us ..I often get strangers coming up to talk about our bikes when we are stopped ...just last Sunday we had an elderly lady with her middle aged daughter come over to us in Tyndrum, they were American tourists and the daughter asked if she could take a pic of her mum with all 'the bikers' ..I said sure no problem and then I sat her on my bike for the pic ...she was well pleased (we had to lift her on and off the bike but good for her, elderly - yes ..but still 'full of life' - God bless her ).

Anyway, I hope you do make it to Scotland ...you will be welcome and you still have time .
