  2. Edinburgh: Police probe as teen pictured on stolen superbike

    Chatter
    In Edinburgh recently there has been a rash of ne'er-do-wells—children, dammit—stealing motorbikes, joyriding with scant regard for anyone or anything, and then burning them to the ground. It seems no-one is safe, particularly in the affected areas. But this report in the Evening News has...

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Taking the scenic Gairloch - Edinburgh route, really enjoyed the dry singletrack roads after 'biblical' Friday and 'gradually improving' Saturday. Well worth the hour or so's diversion (particularly with new-found confidence in the twisties courtesy Mr Ric Or & his Intiminators!) :)

    Chatter
    As some of you know the BMW disgraced itself on Friday morning and was recovered to Edinburgh Motorrad at lunchtime. I get a call early afternoon saying it will be ready either Friday or Saturday and they would call me back and let me know. Well no call on Friday or Saturday so I eventually...

  16. Edinburgh to Troon (Non Motorway)

    The Longest Day
    For those of you wishing to avoid the Motorway I took a run down the A71 to Troon today. I followed this route. The route itself is pretty simple ans once you reach point B on the map you are on the A71 and you simply stay on the road pretty much all the way to Troon. Once you near Troon the...

    The Longest Day
    Has anyone checked that we can still get vehicle access to the Castle esplanade these days? The Castle is still a working army barracks and the esplanade used to be the car park for castle visitors but something is nagging at the back of my mind that makes me think for security reasons it is...
