    Scotland to Russia and back.

    A tale from this summer. I rode to the far north of Russia via Lofoten and Nordkapp with my Dad!
    This is a long one with loads of pics and as always, it's on my blog.

    What we need are clearly defined areas of doubt and uncertainty!

    Sneek has a big branch of Motoport where you might even have got your dad’s disk fixed.

    Thanks for all the comments guys.

    Westride, I'd love to be able to do it full time, who wouldn't! I just need to find someone to pay me.
    We'll be in Applecross a few times no doubt, I'll ping you an e mail before we go.
    I'm putting on a bike rally in April too that you might be interested in. Should be a good laugh.

    Cheers
