Long time, no see...........

Long time indeed .... Hi again ............. 'the Goddess' ? Lol! - don't be giving her ideas! Sarah has not been on the last couple of rideouts as she is still not fully recovered from her broken leg .. she can ride again now ..but anything more than about an hour's riding is too painful.... she has trouble changing gear and has to lift her foot off the peg over bumps. But she's getting there, slowly ..... went out with her for a wee blast on tuesday evening after work .....

At Christmas - Out on the beach .... on crutches ...walking the cat.....



Tuesday evening just gone - second time back in the saddle...

Aye! Lol! - but it's the gravel you often find on the tight L.H. bend just after the golf course entrance that bothers me more.

True. I was on it last night as a passenger in a cage, some fool in a megane convertible decided to go into the Queens view car park then changed their mind so were just sat across both lanes facing in at it pointing!

We were coming from Glasgow as a bit of a lick, so we came round the corner to this.

Quite a few bikes at the Carbeth as well actually.

I love that series of bends at the Queens View ...it's just a shame the entrance to the car park is slap bang in the middle of them! .... always got to be ready and covering the front brake as you crank round them.


Queens View bends - Sarah - 'on the brakes' as car ahead slows to turn into the car park ....

this reminds me, last year you know the farm shop fake cows at the side of the road just before the Queens View?

Well some boy was in his boxers tied to one of them.

Stag night or just the way they are out there who knows.

"you are going to die"

Just a wee post to say thank you so much for posting such great pics of my beloved Scotland. I moved back to the West about 12 years ago and got back in to bikes. We really are blessed here with fantastic roads, best thing that I ever did was getting a bike again. Only two complaints about this thread:

1/ I was up till 1 am working my way through the pics!

2/ I'm not in any! All my favourite roads are there and I was even on the 2009
Easter egg run. Have I been photoshopped out for being uncool?

Thanks again and please keep them coming.

Cheers

Tango2

PS If your pal with the Tricolore needs a kidney transplant, I'm prepared to give him one of mine plus cash for his Ducati

The blue cows! Lol! - His mates were obviously a compassionate crowd ..... if they left him with his boxers. Lol! .

Cheers - you are very welcome ...and thanks for the complaints. Lol!

I suppose 52 pages of pics is a lot to do in one sitting - It's taken me over a year! ..so you did well! Lol!

As for 'not being in any of them' - you are probably somewhere in the Egg Run ones - just not found yourself yet! (It's a bit like one of those 'Where's Wally' kid's books....keep looking - hours of fun! ) .... but if you want to be more prominent in some ... come and join us one Sunday. ... Send me a pm if you fancy it and we will sort something out .... We will be out most dry Sundays. (Then you can negotiate the 'kidney deal' with Stewart in person ).

Great I'll try and manage a Sunday, annoyingly I work shifts and Sundays seem to get hammered. I'm hoping to get along to this years Easter egg run.

Do any of you guys get to the IOM TT? I started going a few years ago and now I've really got the bug. Couldn't recommend it eneogh.

Cheers

No worries ... will be good to meet you one Sunday ... when you are free send me a pm and I will let you know if we are out that Sunday.

Not sure about this year's Egg Run ..they seem to be doing their best to ruin it - restricting numbers, having to pre-register, shortening the route, keeping it out of Glasgow City Centre and off any main roads.

Yes, some of our group do the IOM and also the North West races.

Sarah and I were at the IOM last in 2008.
