Quick spin out

Postby slparry » Thu Aug 02, 2018 4:30 pm

Decided to nip up to the Altnaharra Hotel during my holiday from work.

270 miles yesterday
276 miles today
About 260 tomorrow
Then 270 home busy few days

The a836 North of Inverness has to be one of the most scenic routes in the UK

The RT is a great tourer making light of journeys. At my last service last week work discovered the exhaust flap has been sticking, and replaced under warranty goes much better now than it did on the Welsh weekend :)

The A836 near Altnaharra at 9am on a weekday morning .... I'd not seen another vehicle for 20 miles
