From Seth

Hey everybody! This thread sure went quiet after our ride. I'm sort of just posting up so the darned admin will let me reply to a pm I got on here. But, we should meed up at the Cumberland again? However, I'm stuck in California at the moment with a visa issue.

Post up!

-Seth

I also need to add a post in order to PM folk - but thought that whilst I am on I would ask if there any plans for another Scotland trip in 2009. I am based in Inverness and ironically was at a rally in Skye the weekend you travelled up last time. A mate was broken down in Lochcarron and whilst waiting for a recovery a load of adventure bikes road by ! - now I know it was you lot - keep me in the loop if there turns out to be something arranged for this year

Cheers

Chizz

It would be nice to get together for another scots meeting, maybe with an earlier arrival destination (daylight/dryish and someone pleasant that would let us camp on the site we booked) also a nearby pub would be good. Beej how about you getting it on the road ? then you will get loads of posts on here to get you up to speed - see that put you in charge already (ps hows the tent?).
Got to say did not see anyone broken down on the last run - shame cos I am sure we would have - with our combined heads knocked together and tool sets rattling - saved him a recovery and got him on the road again.

I'd be up for this. though I'd prefer to stay to the east (the west is wet, full of tourists and midges :-) )

a possible alternative is up the tomintoul road through the cairngorms, there's a decent campsite up at Granton. plenty of wild-camping just past Glenshee. there's also Glen Isla or Glen Clova, both of which have great pubs (Glen Clova being better).

another alternative would be a one-nighter down at Jedburgh. there's a caravan club campsite there that has a wee nook just off their main site. it would be ideal for ten or so tents/tipi's, and is out of the way of everyone else.

Beej is away for a 5 week euro-tour at the moment. so, you're in charge ! :-)

cheers,
Doug

Hi Doug - remember - problem is I'm English - wrong side of the border - I've organised several mini meets in Northern England - maybe someone else's turn - but if no one else volunteers then I can sort something in Scotland - if the proud chaps and chapesses of Scotland will accept being taken for a ride by the English ! - Jake.
