    I was forced to concur that I had.
    Ha ha love it, got the same sort of reaction when performance touring on my 996R

    Anyway for anyone interested here are a few pics......

    Looking out from the pub at Applecross


    And a nice old Riley RME spotted in Ullapool.

    Who did you go with?
    Looking at the pics I assume you didn't camp.
    Am interested to know how you organised accommodation. Did you plan and book ahead or just chance your luck?

    If the old grey matter allows me I'm sure he posted at the time that he went with his son!

    Aye Sam. Your grey matter is obviously faring better than Robbie's. On that occasion Niall had previously booked the accommodation a month or 2 in advance. He had planned doing it with a mate, but the mate binned his bike a couple of weeks before the trip was planned. So I got the offer to go instead since the accommodation was already booked. First night was at the Weigh Inn at Thurso, just at the Scrabster harbour turn off. Next night was in Ullapool at the Argyll Hotel and final night was a B&B in Oban close to the harbour.
    For some of classic club challenge trips I've used booking.com or just googled for B&Bs in the areas I'll be visiting and usually manage to find something if I'm looking 2 or 3 weeks ahead.

    I find it really good. It will fit on any of my bikes and is completely waterproof although it wouldn't stand immersion. Mine is the US20 pack which I find a good size and will hold enough enough for a weekend away.
