The trophy (The red Beluga) was a great bike. It had enough power so that I did not have to keep heal (Ana) shifting all the time but way to heavy for the twisty twisty roads we were riding.Cool! I noticed the Triumph Trophy in front as we have one of those.
We're going to the UK in mid December
Great pictures!...coming soon...
All in all the drivers are way more curtious and over all just plain and simple better drivers. They tend to drive a little faster on the smaller roads but are more attentive. In the 7 days we rode I only recall one idiot forcing his way in between us and that was on a really twisty section of road where we had been stuck behind a line of about 8 cars for about 15-20 minutes.Great pictures!
BTW, how did the car drivers behave around motorcycles on your trip?
Is Eilean Donan the name of that castle? I think it's been in a bunch of movies. The opening scene of Highlander flashed through my head when I saw that picture.
I'm jealous, I toured Ireland and Scotland years ago, but that was before I rode. I can only imagine how cool it is to ride motorcycles through that scenery.
