I'm considering a motorcycle vacation in either Scotland or Ireland around mid-May next year. It would be a self-guided tour with my wife riding pillion, probably around 9 days. The options: I could rent from Celtic Rider outside of Dublin, or Scotland by Bike in Aberdeen. My family is originally from Orkney, so Scotland would be have that discover-your-roots vibe to it. We have friends in Dublin who we like a lot and rarely see. Both will be expensive, with sketchy weather and food, and great booze and scenery. I have a feeling the roads might be more fun in Ireland, but that's just based on what I've seen online. So...it's a toss-up. What say you?
