Hello Willsy! Greetings from Pennsylvania. I imagine the countryside in Scotland would provide some of the finest motorcycle touring anywhere. Good to meet you.

Hi, yes we are fortunate to have a wide range of terrain (and weather!) all within a couple of hours wherever you live in Scotland.
From mountains to deserted white sandy beaches.

I've been round that route a lot as a kid, im looking forward to doing it on two wheels with some friends in the Spring time

Truly a stunning country, & as a Brit who has travelled north of Hadrians' Wall, if it didn't rain so much, it would be top of my list for any future biking holidays around GB.

Well I do still have contact with my relatives in Scotland, thought when we tried contacting the German relatives we were essentially told to pound sand.

Cheers folks.

And it doesn't matter where you're from that's important , it's where you're at!

Ride safe y'all! ( in my best Louisiana accent as I've spent a lot of time working there)
