The big man only has about a 4 hour riding window (with the timings of his flights and the negotiation time needed with the dealer) , so we will be heading North about as far as Dalmally / Tyndrum area - weather permitting as there are a couple of high sections on the route (Rest and Be Thankful , and the section between Dalmally and Tyndrum) - Snow is forecast for thursday/friday - If the roads are clear thats where we plan to go - if not there are plenty of other options.

Bit concerned that you might have to rely on the colour for the mountain rescue bods to find you. The weather is not looking too good at the moment. Hope you are not disappointed after the wait to try out the new toy.
aye that is a bit of a worry but we will cross that bridge when we come to it:thumbup:

The forecast on the BBC Weather website is grim for sunday as posted tonight (wednesday). We stay calm !! We do not panic !! it's only wednesday there's lots of time for the weather forecast to change between now and then. The way the weather patterns are being "wheeched" along at the moment - anything could happen - a couple of hours either side of a front passing through can make a hell of a difference and there is no way on earth you can forecast that accurately with more than four days to go . .................. I HOPE !!!!!

There are plenty of alternatives for spending an afternoon on the bikes - but the mountains would be preferred methinks !!!
