Just a note of thanks here.  I've been in the UK over three weeks now and have been having an incredible time.  Made it from London, across Hadrian's wall, out to Arran and Skye, to John O' Grouts and across the top of Scotland, now back near Leeds.  Feel like I have ridden every single track in Scotland and absolutely loved it.  Rather ride here than in the States!  All the tips everyone gave me really helped adjust and now I just fly through the roundabouts like everyone else.  The big arrow I taped on the inside of my windscreen really helped at the start.  Now I'm saving it to reverse when I cross over to France! 

Also stopped by and had my 12k service by David (Muddysump) on my way north and can't begin to recommend him enough.  His work was first rate, price excellent, and he and his girlfriend (an even his mother) were most hospitable and kind.  Great guy!!!

I think that the summary of the last three pages is to stay aware and to recognize that traffic behavior and road rules change from location to location and are not even consistent within the same country.

Just hang back behind a local and see what they do, not infallible, but a good guide  :001:
