    The bike looks at home in it's natural environment, and good to see you made it through the Dalvene Pass safely.

    We had a great ride, we did the 740, 797 and the 702 twice..

    Heading home we got to Dumfries sooner than we thought we would so had a coffee and headed back up to Moffat and took the road passed St Marys Loch to Hawick.. I just wish we'd have had another day.

    Hopefully back up in October.. albeit with at least 2 sleeping bags..  :190:  :164:

    Steve's xr at the side of my tent with a lightweight tarp.. created some under cover space for cooking and keep any showers off of us..


    8am Tuesday morning.. fresh but dry and bright and 3 passes waiting for us, what a start to the day..

    Nothing to do with you ride but a question about the wind deflectors, do they give the same protection as the the knuckle guards?

    In all hoesty, I didn't notice a difference when I fitted them. I did buy then very cheap from a forum memeber, if I'd have paid full price I would have been very disapointed.. :009: just something else to clean and polish..  :155:
