    Thumbs up

    Thanks for the kind comments folks. Here are a couple from yesterdays wanderings on the 'ickle GS:-

    Auchindoun Castle



    Blervie castle



    The River Spey



    Rather ominously, the Police dive unit were at the Advie bridge, with the RAF Mountain Rescue trucks a little further down stream. Nothing in the local paers about a floater, so i hope it was just an exercise

    Very nice Steve.

    Currently planning a long weekend (4 days) riding around Scotland with the old man. May have to pester you for suggestions/recommendations re roads and routes to make the most of our trip.

    Very jealous that you get to play on them all year round.

    More nice weather!!!????

    Twas 12 degrees Celcius yesterday, 29th December, so I took the F8Gs up into the hills . . . . specifically I headed for the Lecht Ski centre via Grantown on Spey and Tomintoul . . . . . .

    Here we see the centre without much snow . . . . unlike less than a week ago when the road was closed due to TOO MUCH snow


    This is the view towards Braemar, showing the growing bank of clouds that contain much wetness . . . . . . .


    Headed home via Strathdon and the Cabrach, with the sun and the very strong wind at my back

    Today, I'd be better off with a set of water wings and not motorised wheels . . . . . . check out the River Dee video clip that shows a mobile home being rammed under a bridge

    Lets see what tomorrow brings, weather wise, to take us into the New Year

    That's it! I really need a slightly bigger little bike, may pop into Willie's to see what he's got...

    I really fancy learning these 'alternative' routes...

    Thinking of doing a camping trip sometime this week (or next), you working as usual??

    Another close to home 'practice area' Steve and less chance of being shot at here I'd take the GSA up there but there's a gate and ditch to negotiate so slightly easier with the CCM!
