Aside from the very different riding position how did you find the power difference on the XR to the 1200S. And how much did the dealer offer trade in?!

Re: A Wee Grampian Adventure Fri 17th July - Sun 19th July 2020

Set off in damp conditions from Broxburn in the morning and despite the glorious conditions to the North arrived back to damp and grey conditions (at least the days' flies were easier to remove from my visor). Not many opportunities for ph...

Let me know if you are coming and if you want to wait at Newbridge for us passing or catch us at the Bridge to save you riding round the bypass to come back no problem :D Accepting the time aspects I'll meet you guys at the pub before 0930, so I can try to put names to faces and bikes before we sta...

Re: A Wee Grampian Adventure Fri 17th July - Sun 19th July 2020

I am working a plan that may/should see me along for the ride on Friday. :D

Looks like there is no room at the inn on Friday night, so I'll be heading back to Broxburn at some point on Friday afternoon, perhaps picking up some pf the stuff you will be doing on the Saturday.

Re: Calling Stoney

Room for one more? I have permission from SWMBO so assuming that the weather remains as forecast I am game :D

Riding up from Preston. I have some stuff to do later in the afternoon so might run away a little early depending on how things go.
