Congratulations on the job front Beej - everyone seems to be worried about cuts etc just now its just the way the workplace is nowadays -
Excellent that you will be getting to Russia - that's another five weeks of me sitting at work being jealous of someone elses travels (Our day will come though!) - not exactly sure on buffet price - but should only be five/six quid mark.
All being well will pick up racks for Serows tomorrow - so just the powder coating to be done now - do you/Chris know anyone in Edinburgh that is reasonable for powder coating - nothing at all in the Highlands - as usual looking for good price , good quality and quick service - really want to get them bolted on and at least one good test run/camp before going to Ripley in June.
Look forward to seeing you soon - are you coming up with the rest of the Edinburgh gang ?
Just spoke to Touring Ted this evening. The pair of us are committed to travelling to Edinburgh on Friday arriving sometime at 6pm ish (cant pull out of this it was arranged last year). We will be setting off to Calander (sic?) and Kilmahog early on Saturday morning and have to be back in Edinburgh sometime Sat night. Just looking at the AA autoroute and Cannich is 3.25 hours away from Kilmahog and 4 hours back to Edinburgh. So altogether aprox 9 hours in saddle non stop including ride from Eburgh to Kilmahog.
Ted did say we could just ride up to the camp, plant a flag to say we were there so when you came back from your ride out you could see that us southern softies had made an effort!
I have a mobile number for some one and I will let them know on Saturday whether or not it is feasable for us to "pop" in. It is doable if we left Eburgh at 5am or so but that will be dependant upon hangovers and the state of the caliper Ted is sporting on his leg!
Helloooo... Just had my half day holiday for Friday (PM) confirmed
So my plan is to Finish work at 12:30 (Edinburgh, City) and shoot back home (Bathgate) to load up the kitchen sink etc...(I like to keep my pots and pans clean) and meet up with you guys at the petrol station/Mac Dons just before the bridge.
Dougie - I will be up in Cannich middle of the day on friday long before your leaving Edwins burgh, But Keiren is finishing work at 1.30 in Rothbury and heading North Hoping to meet the Posse at the services before the bridge he reckons he will be there by three - which sounds about right for the distance he needs to cover so will hopefully meet up with you all. What time are you expecting to arrive in Cannich ? if you don't get lost on route.
Look forward to meeting you Aussie geezer and glad Kierans coming along too. Jake you will probably be first to arrive - I am not sure when I will finish work but probably wont make it until after 4 - I will let Angus know you will be there early. Doug if you are coming up from Speanbridge -there are filling stations at Invergarry,Fort Augustus and Drumnadrochit - I would think Fort Augustus and Drum will probably be open.
Jumped the pond yesterday, endured 24 hours of airport agony flying standby to save a buck, and dodged the ash cloud! NOW---I'm just hoping my lost luggage shows up with all my riding gear still in the bag!!!
WOW, Bruce, sounds like a hell of a spread you're putting on--or organizing anyway! Any family jewels from some poor unfortunate Highlander bull calfs on the menu?? Makes venison pasties taste like chopped liver!!
Yes, moxy is a compliment--and will have to withdraw from the skirt contest myself---since I prefer to keep my private parts packed neatly away in my trousers---rather than dangling in the wind!!!
Anybody bringing extra hangover medicine--sounds like it may be needed!!
Might also be interested in exploring further north and west with anyone interested for a few days after the weekend is over
