Got home and funny enough those black clouds and heavy rain did no more than wash the road before I arrived never hit a drop from leaving you all in Edwins burgh Infact it was damn sunny in the borders north of Coldstream where I had a short break. To Angus and Bruce - Excellent do,great site, grand pub, too much ale and too much rain but overall a superb show from the Highland division Thanks to everyone involved. Jake.
Hi guys, weather was great here this afternoon. Mark (weaklinks) and I finally got to ride up to Glen Affric, without getting wet. We were both blown away by how beautiful the place is.
Mark, Rory and I are staying one more night at the camp ground, then we're going to Ullapool for Rory to catch the ferry to Stornaway, and then Mark and I are going to roam around for a few days.
It was fabulous to meet everyone and I had a GREAT time. Thanks Bruce and Angus for your warm welcome and the effort you put in to make it a great weekend, despite the rain. And special thanks Bruce for turning me on to McCallan and water.Hopefully the Gods will allow us to meet again sometime.
All of you are welcome to visit me in OZ if you ever make it there, I'd be happy to show you around and give you somewhere to stay.
When I manage to get my crap together I'll start a blog and post a link here to it.
It's late and finally getting dark so I'm of to bed. The body clock seems to be running on local time now, and I'm stuffed.
Hey guys, I just wanna thank you all for the greatest weekend I've had in ages, thank you Beej and Chris for inviting me, and to all of you who made me feel welcome, this was a weekend I'll be talking about for ages, and I owe it all to you guys, thanks again
Thanks a lot for the brilliant weekend! We had an absolute blast! Comming back after the Applecross run was I think the best decision we could have ever made. Had a great time! My fingers still hurt a little bit from the guitar but it was so worth it I should do it more often or maybe just take one with us for the trip.
It was great to meet all the different people--and to feel welcome. Hope to run into all of you in the future. If anyone is ever in the States--don't hesitate to give me a buzz for anything I could help you out with!!
PS--Andy, I will have a special bottle of vodka waiting for you at my place! (Gosia too, of course--just so she doesn't talk my ear off! yeah right--lol)
Well folks it was a pleasure and a privilege to meet all of you.
I've been at many bike meets over the years, but that was the best.
The local boys did a great job.
I met some great characters, (a 30 year old Gussi and no tent, man you’re a star.).
Had a fantastic run back up to Ullapool.
Ed the Ausi, - keep enjoying Spayside’s finest
Andy & Gosia – Travel safe and travel well.
Oh and the pain bit - I’m stuck with that yank for a month . . . . . and he doesn’t even have a kilt !
Hi all,it was a pleasure to have met you all,what a great mixture o folk resulting in a fantastic chilled weekend.It was typical, yesterday was the hottest day o the year the Applecross run would have been stunning,but i still enjoyed it anyway even with a leaky rain suit! Hope we can make it an annual event.all the best Angus
Adding my thanks to the list, great to see everyone again and meet new people, hear new stories (though I never did get to hear the one about Angus's trousers...)
Alex & I started off on Sunday morning under the same grey skies as everyone else, but what a change through the day, by lunchtime we were under blue skies, admiring the stunning beauty of the Gairloch peninsula. We bimbled all the way to Skye, about 200miles all in, and camped at Glenbrittle in the company of a couple of Alex's friends - blue sea, blue sky, sunshine, tents dry seconds after being put up, and enough breeze to keep the midgies away almost all of the time.
I had to head back on Monday so turned south, via the Mallaig ferry and the Strontian coast road, nothing but sunshine all the way, one of the most beautiful days' riding I've had.
Again and again, even under grey skies, this weekend has reminded me how lucky I am to live within striking distance of scenery to rival anything you'd travel hundreds of miles to see.
Hope the current travellers have great trips, and see you all soon.
