Hey Gents - just thought I'd share the news I finally made an honest woman of her... despite the fact she rides an R6 ... got hitched last Saturday.

Both been over the course before so just a small ceremony with immediate family who had no idea we were getting married.

Honeymoon spent camping on the west coast of Scotland sharing the tent with our two dogs...who said romance was dead????:rolling:

Anyone considering their next tour on the Nelli should really think about Glencoe/Skye/ pretty much everywhere up that way if you've never been...without doubt the most stunning scenery in Britain, roads to die for and plenty touring bikers to share a beer with. Obviously we were in the car with two mutts but couldn't help feeling very jealous of every biker we saw.

Many congratulations on the wedding and making an honest woman of her! and great venue for the honeymoon. Could not agree with you more regarding the scenery. I'm over in Skye / Mull area as much as possible. Here is a wee photo from a couple months back (Sorry folks was on my R1) but I was there with a Benelli 750sei! :) .. who says it always rains in scotland!! :p

Last May I took my Nelli up to Shiel Bridge. Visited Loch Carron, Applecross area. Returned via Kyle of Lochalsh and Skye, trip on the ferry then Fort William and Glencoe. Absolutely brilliant! Got 3 different days; a dull but dry one, one with heavy rain, then a glorious sunshine day :ele:

Attached are some photos :D

I agree totally, beautiful scenary and great roads.

Nice pictures Bob. May must be the time to go as your bike appears strangely fly free after such a long journey!

It was the weekend of the early May Bank Holiday.
Absence of flies, that may well be true. I have to admit to washing it after the ride up :D but also due to the horrendouse rain of the previous afternoon/evening for the ride out to Applecross LOL

not always blue skies

The above photos were taken on the Monday ride home.
Here's a photo from the Sunday ride-out. You can see the early morning sunshine is giving way to very Highland-esque clouds all ready to dump on us for the rest of the day :rolling:


here's another from above Loch Carron on the start of the pass to Applecross (app the highest paved road in the UK).


The Highland weather may be unpredictable, but the scenary is always stunning :)
