    Small world. Carleton Place is just down the road from me. My Grandfather came from Scotland and was as Scottish as could be.... and an avid motorcyclist.
    He rode one of these and would be aghast to see all the German made Police cars/bikes and Japanese and Italian road bikes I'm sure! :lol3

    As for weather...when I was in Scotland, at times I really wished I had my bike instead of a rental car. At times! :D

    A great report here and wonderful pics. Thanks for posting!

    Got to love some of the A roads up the west coast. Anywhere else in the UK an A road has at least one lane in each direction.

    Thanks :D ... The Scott looks awesome ..although I bet it is a whole different experience to ride! I notice how much bikes have changed since I first got into bikes, riding the likes of GT750 Suzuki two-strokes (crap handling, tyres and brakes ... so God knows what riding those classics must be like !

    Your grandfather would hopefully be heartened to see we still have Triumphs in our group... and great bikes they are too. :thumb

    Yep, one of the most thrilling rides around here is the twisty 'Dukes Pass' over the Trossachs - the A821. Awesome road ..but has caught many a biker out.

    On the Dukes Pass...

    Makes sense! :D
    One thing you've got to have if you do photos that way is a bunch of fellows you absolutely trust. Riding in between the other bikes at full speed with only one hand (shame on you, bad boy!) - the others have to know that and react according to it. But from what I can see you have good company on your ride-outs. Seems like a really cool group. :1drink
    Have you ever been to Switzerland & the Alps? If not (or if yes, you can't be here too often) - I wanna see those bikes parked at my place! :evil:D
    We got a bunch of pretty amazing roads and loads of even more amazing scenery in the neighbourhood..

    Anyways, we have to get a camera like this (the Nikon is just too big for these purposes) and then we will hopefully be able to shoot some nice pics as well. Advantage in our case: My beloved live navigation system is riding with me, reading the map on my back - so why not taking photos as well. We gotta try this.

    Thanks again for the thread, makes my day!

    Cheers! :freaky

    Thanks for more killer pictures off the egg run! My hats off to you guys. Great to see so many motorcyclists getting together for a great cause. :clap

    We have charity runs like that here, but they are much smaller.

    Blows me away, the quality of photos you get from a Canon powershot. Looking forward to seeing more.

    Cheers!

    Thanks again Frank :D ... The Canon really is a great wee camera ... if these pics are any good it is down to the camera rather than myself ... I just tend to leave it on 'auto' setting and 'click' away. :wink:

    Last pic on here from our trip touring across France

    Heya!
    I really hope that picture above is not from Andorra... terribly wrong side of the road. :D
    Yep, you should definitely come to the Alps. You will not regret.
    As I said - we are planning on riding Scotland & Wales this summer. We will try to get a cam like yours before, so we can take some cool pics (maybe you guys will be on some, I'd like that! :wink:)
    Tanks again for sharing the pics and making the snow melt! :freaky
    Cheers.
