    Nice footage.

    Skye is beautiful and I will be there for my 60th this year during an island-hopping tour of the West of Scotland. Can't wait.

    I could have chosen anywhere for such a landmark birthday, but wanted to return to Skye.

    Nice one ... good footage, but a little sharp and jerky at times with the helmet cam, just remember when filming to make the head movements slow and steady

    Walked up and along the Quiraing on Skye with my new metal knees ... wonderful

    Fantastic video thanks for sharing!

    Did the NC500 last year and loved it so next year we are for returning to do an island hop of the west so this certainly wetted the appetite!

    Your right, first thing a bought when a came back was a gimbal. Much more stable footage looks great when mount it on the pillion pegs facing the back tyre with the camera keeping level and the bike leaning left/right.

    I a cheated with the hills using the drone, that some achievement with metal knees

    Thanks,

    A forgot that a put that bit in, it's a sort of if you made it this far here's a laugh.

    Am not a fan of listing specs and blah. Making fun of it seems better, a just hope no one is looking for a bmw hornet, Kawasaki fazer or Fiat 800gs on ebay.

    Interesting.

    I was in the car park at Eilan Donan 2 days ago to let some friends take a picture and there was a big notice saying it was a 'Drone Free Area'.

    I they came and told me afterwards, it would have been fine taking off in the layby outside but not in the grounds.

    Drones have a seriously bad image and most of its from the bombs that our government seems fine with dropping on other countries.
