Buddy and his wife rode the NC 500 a couple years ago. Bastard wants me to go now. Guess I'll have to rent a bike there, or something. Does anyone have rentals for poor folk like me?
My buddy is a photographer for a major network, and came home with some nice landscapes.  :123:

I also ride my Husqvarna 701 Enduro. (Been known to ride the "Vet" track @ Fox Raceway.) If you see and old, fat guy on a 701E, it's likely me!

Believe it or not, I'm down to 2 bikes!

Newcastle to Fort William. 2 nights at Cruachan Hotel.
Fort William to Skye. 2 nights at The Portree Hotel.
Skye to Aviemore. 2 nights at Coylumbridge Hotel.
Aviemore to Aberfeldy. Final night at Moness Resort then home for tea.

Not the NC500...done it all ends up long before it got famous...but a good week away.

Setting out with 4 other Triumphs on Thursday next. Keep an eye out if you're nearby, or join us for a pint or a ride.
