    Thunder in the Glens

    Yup, it's that time of year again. The first few HD's have started arriving in the valley, the sun is out, Aviemore will be fully booked and the breweries will have sent all they can spare from the Edinburgh Festival up here.

    I'll go through on Saturday morning, the ride out (in the sun) is worth watching - then a few relatively peaceful beers before they all get back - then a few rowdier ones .

    Cairngorm bar has bands on in the afternoon, plenty to walk about and see up the hill at MacDonalds, given decent weather its not a bad day out

    You don't have to want to own, or like, HD's. I quite enjoying looking at some of the things there though, even if you have to get past the week day lawyers getting all badged up to strut with attitude.

    Thought there was a lot of Harleys passing through today.
    Is there anything on, on Sunday ?

    I saw 3 massive ,(bigger than my house,but that wouldn't be difficult) Motorhomes with harleys on trailer going up the A9.

    Never been to it but quite fancy it. Going on the drink might be a bit dangerous though.

    Went well, Saturday weather was great, huge number of bikes out for the Rideout, good atmosphere. No trouble as usual and beer was fine.

    Sorry Gordon, missed post, few wee rideouts on Sunday plus all the music and stalls and entertainment

    I'll be there, probably sat and Sun evenings, at the Cairngorm hotel having a few beers and listening to the bands!

    I'm heading up on Thursday for three nights, we normally go on the bike and stay at the Coylumbridge Hilton, no bike this year though, I'm taking my caravan and staying at the Dalraddy site just south of Aviemore. hope to catch a few beer at the Cairngorm which is my prefered watering hole whilst at Thunder.

    There's no fuel available in Aviemore at the moment. The filling station is being rebuilt.

    I'll be there Saturday - for a few ones through the afternoon and evening. Always a grand weekend, good music and beer and bikes. And yes, coming from the south or west fill up at Newtonmore, coming from the east at Grantown and from the north - Inverness should do you.

    Maybe a couple of pints at the Cairngorm Saturday?
