Just back in from a wee rideout.

Coming fast into a favourite set of twisties I noted some smoke drifting across the road - rolled off the throttle thinking someone was burning refuse or having a roadside BBQ.

Smoke then gets thicker and thicker and it ain't smelling like a BBQ or someone's old rubbish. Visibility rapidly reduces and then as the corner really tightens up - out of the smoke looms a steam powered traction engine with a bloke prending to be Fred Dibnah at the controls. At the heady speed of 7 mph anyone running into it would simply have been flattened or pulped.

Funny how many tourists had maps open on their knees as they drove along - are Sat Nav systems that expensive?

Meanwhile the road safety 'experts' continue to target speeders as public enemy No.1 - coz there's cash to be made.

Saw a bloke riding a yellow GS1150 Beemer on the A34 wearing leather waistcoat with Hells Angels patches and colours all over it - must be a bit of a schizophrenic biker

I saw a reflection in a shop window of a Mitsubishi Delica that looked just like mine, but with a flag on it. Then I realised it was mine, and that I'd put the flag on to keep my footie mad 8yr old lad happy.

Mt T - Perhaps the finest posting from you in yonks - absolute class! .............. and those pics are truly a joy to behold ................ and all I get is a Fred Dibnah lookalike producing enough CO2 to end the world North of Alston.

Had a GR9 Harrier and his wingman come and ping me on the A 713 Ayr-Castle Douglas once riding down to Carsphain (some gun runs)...note to thumpers/SD/SM personnel that is a road worthy of the visit...and if you fancy some off road the world is your oyster in the Galloway forest.Trust me its as good as the NW Highlands.
