Bump Starting that is......

I don't know what came over me today....one minute I am casually browsing newer Varas for sale, the next......I pick up the 2009 model on Tuesday and traded my 2003 in.
It needed a new rear shock, a new rear tyre and a full service so I was staring down the barrel of circa £650+ bill...now I'm...
Just a short trip today – 304 miles for me, door to door. RickSkye may have done more though :thumbup:.
Met up on the side of the A9 above Inverness, then headed off into the hills.
This is a view along Loch Naver. Not ridden this little road before today – won’t be doing it again in a hurry...
