I've been up loads of Glens. Glen Coe is the most spectacular ride.

Nice wee run out of about 40 miles today, just out towards Muirkirk and Strathaven.
Started getting pretty cold though, and roads were pretty mucky from farm traffic.
Under the trees was very wet too.
Enjoyed it though. :mrgreen:

We were later going out or else we would likely have made a trip to the welly via Inverary.
Good run all the same, and loads of bikes passing through Biggar.

We went up to Oban via the Green Welly today. Late heading out because of police interview taking aaaaages then having to jump start the bike :roll:

Absolutely cracking ride, though I am a little bit achey from my 203 mile trip :shock:
However, tired achey muscles whilst unleasent is MUCH better than crippling back pain :D

Think I have done as many miles on the VFR in 2 days as on the gsxr in 16months :cry:
VFR starting mileage 2012: 29,995
VFR starting mileage 2013: 34,086

get out and enjoy it thats what i say i would rather go out all day than just for an hour yesterday was a 285 miles for me and to be fair most runs i do are 200+ miles
the borders are always busy when the weather is as good as it was close to home for most people and some truely great roads

Great run. The road at Knockhill is terrible. Weird since all the other roads are good to superb.
