We had tickets for the tour, as well. Saw them in the 80’s but hope Ann recovers and they make it out again.

Rode from home to Dumbarton yesterday in the worst day of weather I have experienced in all my riding. Everything was wet. To compound the issue my Beeline threw a wobble so we did a huge 60 mile loop extra :rage::rage:
I really didn’t want to get back on the bike today. Anyway was dry when we set off and apart from a tiny shower early on we even got sunshine :smile:
Some cool bikes at the Green Welly



Me having to wear an MV fleece as mine was still soaked :confused:

One of motorcycling’s least pleasurable experiences is the first feeling of cold rain finding its way through the crotch of trousers you thought were waterproof. :grimacing:
I hope you get a better day tomorrow!

Rain? That wasn’t rain. I’ve been drier in the shower :grinning:

Should have gone to Galloway first: it did rain here all day yesterday, but just ordinary moderate rain - nothing biblical.

There speaks a man with experience :grinning:
Even the guy who owns the top left his MV at home (fortunately)!

A great night in Oban last night :smile:
Spent a few hours in the Oban Inn, very friendly place. Got talking to a random couple who worked on the ferries, and it turned out the guy worked with my son’s mate on Fisher boats in Barrow a while back :smiling_face:

Today was a great run from Oban to Moffat taking in the A701, brilliant!
Now sat in the Buccleuch Arms and I must say, I am very impressed so far.

You will have had a nice run down - jealous! A701 though?

Talking to Dave at the Bucc about our ride home tomorrow and we mentioned doing the Mennock Pass. He brought us this


He suggested doing the Crawick loop , back up the Mennock then back down to Drumlanrig. Sounds fun :blush:

Safely home now. Lovely ride through Mennock Pass this morning


Just over the edge where we’re stopped, in the valley there was a traffic cone, warning light, a chemical toilet lid and a full set of camping equipment dumped on the river bank :rage: Bring back hanging!
The final numbers from a cracking little trip (except Tuesdays ride :confused:).

That’s where he keeps his wallet :slightly_smiling_face:
I think it’s a Ventura pack, sits on a frame like a tall grab rail.

Rode up to the Sma’ Glen in Perthshire today (that’s the Small Glen if you hadn’t guessed!). Here is a photo of the road as it meets the River Almond (A822), and one of the river looking towards the bridge over the river.

The bridge was built by General Wade in 1730 as part of the network of roads built to quash Jacobite uprisings, supporting James Stuart (the Old Pretender) and Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie)… and the Scots and the English have been arguing ever since. :wink:
