    24 Hour Petrol?

    Coming upto SS after work and swinging by Newcastle for a quick half on the way up with a mate.

    So I'll be getting into Scotland pretty late / early depending on your view.

    Whats 24Hr petrol like past Glasgow? Can't honestly remember seeing any other than in Fort William and then they were a maybe.

    I think the Co-Op in Broadford might do petrol till late though I think its not 24 hours.

    Generally coming A82 / A87

    Never done a trackday but always fancied it. How much does it cost & do you have to dress like a power ranger?

    Thanks for the info on Knockhill. I see you've got a trackbike so you've obviously done a few of these trackdays & you're probably well handy on a bike & possibly a faster rider than little old me,you're certainly a much more economical rider as i only get about 200 miles to a tank. Don't mind meeting up & going for a run sometime but I think I might just hold you back.

    Oh and don't fill up at the "last chance before Skye" - It's cheaper on the Island.
