Welcome to HUBB too. I'm in a similar boat. Did licence 2 years ago (almost to the day) before a year's volunteering and backpacking (non bike) and so that I'd know what to do on a bike in Asia. Hired a few in Asia for the odd day, and only just got back to 'reality'....so had to buy a VStrom to make my job more interesting (ok, the commute).
First decent trip to the Hebrides at end of July (based in Edinburgh) and only a couple of overnighters so far.... maybe the next time I travel it'll be on a bike, but loads to learn!! Heading to the HU meet in the peak next month though which I'm looking forward to. Only problem is I'll want to head off into the sunset straight afterwards....and my bank 'balance' won't let me yet!
Also love photography too...
