It was fantastic, we need more gopros for next time, lots of missed opportunities. There is more video but it'll take time to edit & post. The road before Glencoe was a major highlight & we forgot to put the camera on lol

Will look forward to the video. I've googled some of the roads and they look like 'bucket list' roads!

Some are almost "kick the bucket" roads , especially applecross, but I'd do them all again tomorrow. If you get the chance to ride up there, take it

I had a blast just reading the summary of what happened, I really hope I get to ride these roads one day. Glad you had a blast mate, and happy that incident wasn't any worse, you're girl is one hell of a fighter!

Eagerly awaiting the videos.

The good lady went for xrays today since the swelling hasn't really gone down, turns out she fractured her wrist & broke a finger when she hit my exhaust, then continued to ride for a further day & a half!!

Great report guys. The roads there look AMAZING!
Wish I was closer, I know me and AF would be all over a good trip like that if it weren't so far away! lol

Huge respect to her! Great pain threshold.

She'll still never know how bad it feels zipping up her flies too quick when going commando though ;)

It would be a trek for you guys, but what a trip it would be, every biker should get round Scotland at least once, it's stunning

Talking about adrenaline & dedication to ride & not spoil the trip for the rest of the group get well soon & if they order therapy make sure you attend all the sessions therapy does wonders later down the road when you get older



If it doesn't challange you it won't change you

Aye, there was a lot of GS's on the road, they're popular hire bikes in Scotland from what I hear

That was her exact thinking, not to spoil it but to ride with broken bones takes a lot, I'm not sure I'd have carried on tbh

dude, that hill is about 6 miles from me, it's on one of our fav routes. its called the "electric brae". if you put a car in neutral at the bottom, it will continue to roll up, never tried it on a bike though.

it's a pretty cool optical illusion
