    Will see what I can find out. Tremors setting in will not help the bike's handling.

    it rained every day but was still enjoyable, that day around Gairloch it was a force 7/8 wind, multi in 4th gear on most hills struggling to pull. Got into Ft William frozen and wet but still smiling. Sun would be good but its about the roads, company, craic and food as well
    True! The roads are good, you've chosen the company so all else will drop into place.

    Lily,
    I know the tale is that it always rains in Scotland and when it's not raining it's snowing! Not true.
    Black Isle rainfall is about the same as East Anglia. West coast gets rain due to mountains/Gulf Stream etc but it is usually mild. Are your waterproofs midgie proof though

    If you bought your waterproofs at the same shop you made me buy them waterproof gloves then they definitely will not work. At one point on my recent trip abroad I realise I was wearing what amounted to 2 giant sponges on either hand. I dare not take my hands off the bars in case they plummeted groundwards such was the amount of water them gloves soaked up. They are still drying out now!

    Steve they were made for Hillman Imps as a job lot so they will be fine!!
    To tell the truth I don't think the shop gets the joke as I am not sure they are supposed to be!
    The pumps are relics of the sixties I reckon but it all adds to the atmosphere.
    Pity the prices are not still in the sixties.

    As regards waterfroofs you wont need them! We have blue skies and no clouds and everyone is in shirtsleeves etc. Typical day in the Highlands!!

    Now now CTM...

    We purchased new spangly waterproof's from a certain Italian store in Manchester, seems Mr Rossi likes their clothing so I'm hoping that'll be OK.

    Plus I told Julian to sell you some dodgy gloves because you wouldn't commit to a KTM there and then
