    Commando Monument 11-11-18 or virtue signalling as its called by some dick head

    Hoping to still have some feeling in my fingers & toes this year, as the temperature seems set to remain above freezing on Saturday night and into Sunday morning.

    Tea & medals in the Mill afterwards I think.

    Now, where is the a poppy smiley?

    I rode up for Remembrance Sunday to signal my virtue about nine years ago. I went with a pal from Edinburgh on our Stelvios, it snowed as we rode over the lecht and Glenshee. We stayed overnight in Aviemore waking up to several inches of snow, but luckily the roads were cleared (very impressive). The ride over to Spean Bridge was feckin cold, but was worth it. I went to lay a small wreath because my Nan's brother Fred was a WW2 Commando.

    Yup. Anybody.

    Maybe, but not likely to be on 2 wheels.

    I'm at Neptune first then up to Spean for afternoon.

    Maybe a bit quieter too.

    Would love to join you Steve, but I’m going to an event on Burghead beach at 09:30, followed by laying the wreath at Mulben War Memorial at 14:00. No matter what any dickheads say, I will remember and honour all the fallen.

    Been wanting to do this for a few years, forecast looks pretty decent, rain overnight will mean wet roads but dry overhead. Need to force myself...

    Memorable moment at the monument earlier today and no virtue signalling to be seen

    Nice meeting you SteveT, hope you had a drier ride home than me pouring rain from Fort Bill all the way home worth it though.

    Well done guys, think I've finally convinced myself that it's never going to happen at this time of year I'm afraid, just too far in rubbish weather for me,.
