    Thanks for the tip. That bad are they already. I'll make sure I pack some and a long sleeve top :-)

    Hope the weather stays good

    I know its a tad cheeky at this late stage, but Beth&Me plan on being up in Scotland nx week. We wouldn't need food just a spot to pitch the tent. Is it OK to just drop in and say hello / join in the rideout ?

    You are more than welcome to drop in- there is loads of room at the campsite and plenty of local accomodation.
    Also plentiful are places to eat and drink

    You are also more than welcome to lead the ride out as Klanky now can't make it.

    Midge report

    Just had the lowdown from two "experts" here in Inverness. One says camp as far as possible away from the sea cos they tend to swarm around the seaweed at low tide. The other says camp as close as you can to the sea - avoiding the damp vegetation at the outer edges of the campsite. So there you have it!

    Anyway I wouldn't worry - I was up at Tongue a couple of weeks ago - its the blood sucking ticks that give you Lymes disease you have to watch out for.

    The roads by the way were still deserted, the views fantastic and more bikes on the roads than cars - can't wait.

    Not sure yet Roy it may be earlier if I go on the Ural or later if I go on the GS as i've quite a bit to do tomorrow and meeting someone in the morning I used to work with. If its anywhere near 2 and I'm on the GS i'll give you a call or i'll just hold you up and with roads like those I wouldn't want to do that
