I don't mind wasps - but I wouldn't go as far as eating them! Must take a lot of wasp kebabs to fill one up. Do you catch all your own fresh - or do you buy bags of 'barbecue wasps' from Tesco? Lol!

You would win that bet - it does sound awesome....more like a V-twin than and in-line four.

Heres to you, mate!

I hope "The Big Man" will never come to you to ask if there is problem here.... (maybe you know what I'm talking about, as a Glaswegian... if not, never mind )

Sweet bike that is, take care of it. Happy riding!!

Ok, rewind to last Saturday ..... what a great day ...well 'new bike days' are always special days..a bit like Christmas when you were 8 yrs old.

First pic of my new baby .... outside the dealers (thought I better get a pic before I dropped her ! )....



Got a week to do 600 miles to run her in ...so we thought we would head north of Edinburgh along the coast to Anstruther for fish n chips..... the chippy there is famous for it's award winning fish n chips..... stopped to take in the view over the Firth of Forth...



Anstruther .....






Afternoon tea was had at the Tormaukin Inn in Glen Devon on the twisty A823 ...just down the road from the Glen Eagles golf course..... they do great tea and scones. (Tormaukin means mountain hare)

On Sunday we were out again.... this time with Kevin and Lisa ..... we had to stop in the centre of Crieff to give way to a host of pipe bands coming the other way ...... the Highland Games were on.










I quite like the sound of my own new 'pipes' too .......
