Hey

Nice surprise to see someone in Dumfries on here - I'm just doing my DA course and looking to pick up a decent starter (been recommended ER6F). Hopefully get through it and get myself a bike before winter sets in!

I have been over Wanlockhead loads of times and never even realised about the Dalveen Pass. I have done my D&G run this year to get the tags.
