    Spotted this proper cycle while on holiday. Unfortunately no engine.

    Hundreds of larger bikes (BMW GS, KTM 1290, Africa Twin) spotted. Sorry no pictures, too busy navigating the narrow carriage ways. All the ones I saw were fitted with proper street tires. So I guess there are not many off road routes.

    Driving here is very stressful as not many areas are straight. My rental is the equivalent of a chevy equinox. This is considered a full size SUV here.

    I am in motorcycle heaven, with no motorcycle. LOL. Wish I could plan a motorcycle trip here. Definitely would require proper heated gear and rain gear.

    Most photographed castle in the world.

    It’s Eileen Donan. It was in ruin for a few hundred years and restored about 100 years ago.

    Doune Castle is winterfell. It’s not very big and they said it was a pattern used for the CGI.

    I wanna go too. That should be awesome and shouldn’t be missed!
    But I will have to settle for going to the nearby Silver Mountain Extreme Challenge. It’s an ”Erzeburgish” event that is event #4 of the 2019 AMA National Extreme Off-road Series. Supposedly will have some of the world class level US riders competing. And you get to watch part of it as you take the chair lift to the top of the mountain!

    Currently sitting on a plane in DFW, literally half the people on here are going to the National - so much Fox and TLD on this flight! Going to be a good ride home.

    The beat the heat ride went really good even though we lost Chris for part of it. Got to ride some tacky OHV sand trails.

    Did not see anybody out there except two black bears. 701 suspension work really paid off.

    Also got to ride Ernie’s 300, wow me likely

    I just got my helmet back from Kansas. Does anyone have a bandsaw? I want to cut the helmet in half and see the damage to the foam. The helmet appears to be misshapen. The shield doesn't fit properly and the chin bar is wonky.
