Second week in June I took off with a mate to enjoy the west coast of Scotland.
The weather was a mixed bag, ranging from miserable long spells of rain, through sunshine and showers to glorious sunshine.Not much writing below but some pics:

It was the best motorcycling I can remember in a few years - exhilarating
intense, all-consuming, sensory, in-the-moment, and too much to absorb in a such a short space of time.
I am always blown away by the stunning, breath-taking, other-worldly scenery and the exciting roads of northern Scotland.
At times it was gruelling and challenging as we covered 1,600 miles in seven days, much of it on minor roads. The unseasonable weather added to the challenge - very cold northerly winds for June and frequent showers.
It has re-ignited my passion for motorcycle adventure
