If I stick to my rotation, I'll be home Wednesday 9th July, so any weekend after that is fine by me & miss954 (unless miss954 has arranged something else).
I'm not telling you you have to have that weekends No fix the weekend that has the most people.

I was thinking Mallaig or Skye though that would be quite a ride for the eastcoast mob ( oh sounds like gangsters) or Braemar, thats pretty much a good ride no matter what direction were coming from.

mmm don't think so Chilli, but it really depends on the road (weather) we take.
Easy; Inverness - Drumnadrochit - Invermorison - Kyle of Lochalsh - SKYE.
Longer; Granton on Spey - Aviemore - Kingussie - Roybridge - Invergarry - Kyle of Lochalsh - SKYE.

OK before any of the eastcoast mob starts questioning this, this is only a guesstamate: 4hrs the easy way and 5hrs 30mins the longer way (at legal speeds) Suspect

Remember to fit wets to your bike Nutty, you don't want the same result as the last time we were over the west coast.

Just to put a spanner in the works (sorry Nutty) the Kelso BMF is on the 12th - 13th.
Does anyone from here go to this?? just thinking if they did and we DID pick the 12th, it might compromise the numbers.

I don't like riding in the wet
Jesus, it couldn't happen AGAIN.
IF it rains this time, I'm never going on a ride out with you again.
Also see your looking at the LONGER route, mmm I'm slowing down at the bends before Roybridge then arse I've seen WAY to many ALMOST crashes there.

No, there's a group I ride with down here, bit of an assortment of bikes - 08 busa, couple of gixxer 600's, & a 750, a 916, ZX10.
So fingers crossed for dry weather

nothing wrong with that Gordy, if you want to set it up mate. post up a route/destination and map for those of us that might not know the route.
