    Ha ha.....caught!Well the burn that joins the Ayrshire/Renfrewshire border runs below my Maws bedroom,
    so i'm nearly right!
    So used to being in foreign parts,i just say Glasgow,least it can be found on a map.Scotchland doesn't
    exist in a lot of American eyes.......one reason i hope that changes in 2014 when we have a wee country
    of our own! :)

    So can a Yankee rent a KTM and ride around the countryside for a week or so? Bike rental? Recommendations on roads, trails, sights? Thanks guys.

    I'd imagine it won't be to hard to rent something(not sure about a ktm though) as for where to go, this is gods country pilgrim take your pick. Can't speak for anybody but there's a few of the scots riders that will be like myself and have a couple of bikes, i dare say if you ask nice a bike could be sorted(probably won't be a ktm though).
    Last but not least we DO NOT speak english, we speak Scots, it has lots of similarities but that's about it, don't worry though it dos'nt take long to pick up the differences(this dos'nt include Doric from the north east/Weegie from the west coast or god forbid you meet a Fifer as then you're fecked).

    Never mention England and Scotland in the same sentence. They are not exactly best friends. And as far as speaking English/Scottish, it is hard sometimes to understand it. Then again, for this Texan who has been to Scotland 8 times, they have a hard time understanding me.

    I hope Scotland gains it's Independence. Worked out pretty well that us American's split from the Brits....
