Hey, we missed a trick We should have had a tank to pour the collected water contents of boots and gloves into...(bit like 'it's a knock out')...we could have run a tote on the volume of scottish rain collected lol Also anecdotal observations suggest some of the ALDI & LIDL biking stuff really came up trumps on this trip having been tested to the nth degree. I'm thinking santa's overboots, jim & wacko's thermal belts and brit's all in one waterproof suit Thinking about blackberry's comments about how good her waterproofs were, maybe we can pass on some info to other bm'ers about really good gear as our stuff was tested to...errr...saturation. I know some peeps had really quite expensive gear that was a tad disappointing while others had cheaper stuff that performed really well My ancient, third hand buffalo jacket was ace and i love it to bits

Hi all. Apologies for the no show! I was on Skye and planned to head over directly from there on the Sunday but had to leave Skye on the Thursday due to a problem at home and couldn't get away after that.

Hope I didn't mess you around as much as the weather did.

Well...what can I say...

Fantastic week, great people, 1400 miles and an awful lot of precipitation. Would definitely do it again, but next time, not in a tent

A huge thanks to Madhat and Jim for getting everything sorted and organising the rides out. Jim you're a star, those roads were amazing.

Keep your fingers crossed the weather's better for the next time

Weel everybody, that was my first real test in extraordinary conditions and I failed to last the week, sad to say BUT I'm back to normal (if I ever was) and look forward to whatever comes next....

Jim, & Maryann could not have done better and nor could anyone else, the trip was brilliant. Thankyou guys.

Also a wee mention to the poor poor buggas who had to put up wi me and me weird ways, (it can only get worse) Thanks guys you're all special.

Overall nothing could better a special week with special people except for next year maybe .....JIM!!!!!!????

great crack everyone!! well done and many thanks to Madhat and Paneurojim for the organisation and fantastic ride outs - was the weather bad?? Love my supercheap Aldi one piece more than ever. Bobkat - your Harley is like on of my Brit singles shaking itself to bits lol! Think jaeger bombs need a health / stupidity warning - how many did we have - all your fault skinny lady / Pete!!!!! Cant wait to see Applecross - might just go there on my own! Dry ride home (after Crianlarich) seemed a soft end to the holiday!!! Ride safe all Brit
