Yet more excellent pic's as always Kammy, I was thinking of you yesterday morning when I was watching the national weekend weather forecast, wish I'd have made the effort to come up north now, I ended up doing big loop of the Yorkshire Moors and the weather was cold to say the least, I know you get more than your fair share of crap weather mate but I'm still very jealous! ha ha!!.

Great work mate, well appreciated.

Keith.

Friday's ride....




Our friend Ralph who has only just passed his CBT came along for the day too ..which is some achievement ...It's only his second ride on the bike since passing...and he managed all the way up to Castle Stalker and back ..over 200 miles. We told him where we would be stopping along the way for meals etc. and he went at his own pace and joined us for the breaks...

We also arranged to meet another friend, Tony, from down south who was up touring Scotland for the Easter break ...
Up at Castle Stalker ....., Tony, Ralph and Sarah...



Tony's fully loaded Blade....





Sunshine at Castle Stalker...

What an awesome thread. Glad to see the sportbikes represented, and in "the old country." My peeps are from Edinburough; coal miners until 1867 when they came out to Utah. I ride a 2002 Honda CBR 600 F4i myself.

Good to hear from a fellow sportbike enthusiast. ....You must come back to visit your 'roots' ......(and ride the roads of course. )........

Hello Kam,

Just caught up with your thread you`ve been very lucky. If it was me I would put it down to riding skill that got you out of that one. Couldn`t agree more on your riding philosophy bends are where it is at.
