Well since i have had the cat , well had it for about 1 1/2 months and managed to rack up 2000 miles so far.

For some reason a trip to my local shop 5 mins away takes 30 mins on the cat and 20 miles longer Very Happy

Loving the bike more an more and now seeing what it is capable of.

Gave it a good clean yesterday stipped the back wheel and fairing off and gave it a good clean what a difference.

Glad you are enjoying the cat mate.

You fancy a bit of your local Big Mac rideout this July. We'll probably be passing by your house on the Saturday!!!! Details under Something for the weekend.

Cheers

We are basing at Ullapool youth hostel Friday, Saturday and Sunday night.

You are welcome to stay here too if you fancy. Ideally need to know sooner than later for this and they need monies paying too.

From Ullapool we will take in John O'Groats (not sure the exact route or whether we are going clockwise or anti clockwise yet.

Furball is from Inverness and led the last Big Mac run up there a few years ago.

If you have local knowledge of any must be done roads, must stop photo stops or must have coffee / lunch stop then please let us know.

Sunday will take in Torridon, Applecross and as much of the West coast as we can do I think.

Cheers
Rosco

Just a thought if you are going to John O Groats I work wth a chappie that does the Speedboat tours, but they are happy to do the more speed than the tour and last time i had friends up got a good deal.
