Today the Mountie, me and a pal of the Mountie went for a little ride to Applecross. Luverly day, with persistent rain from home to the other side of Inverness (Achnasheen to be exact). The afternoon was fine, with the sun only occasionally obscured by rain and hail showers.


When we got to the view point on the top of Applecross, the Mountie decided it would be a good idea if we went a little higher . . . to the phone mast and beyond.



The view from the top . . . . in between hail showers of course!


Small problem with the Venom exhaust on the Mountie's steed - it kept working loose. Ended up re-securing it 3 times. This fix point was Shieldaig, in the sun :D.

All in all a luverly day out in some really scenic places on some really empty and twisty roads.

Must do it again before the snow settles.

Having drove up today i dont think it will be long before i get the bike out upthere cos the roads look the job.

Yet some more views from the phone mast . .


This one of me and Paul settling our nerves having followed the Mountie up the hill.


The view down from the phone mast . . . . only for the brave!

Bazza,

Look forward to meeting up. Could sort out a run south from here and meet you half way - say Blairgowrie or Pitlochry?

The Mountie and I are planning another little run this week once some domestics are complete. You free at all during the week?

I'll keep you in mind when I sort a end of riding season ride out for us up north. It'll be no later than mid October due to lighted hours reducing rapidly.

TTFN,

Steve T

Nice one Steve,

Had to work :mad: :mad: :mad: as you know, maybe next time.
BTW I went up to the mast in the winter with a dusting of snow, started to sweat a bit on the way down.
Was planning it on the haggis run but there were a group of bird twitchers, with radios, would you believe, scampering up the track.

Did you check your chain guide for squished Ptarmigan chicks ?? :D :D

See you soon

Only wild life up there was us, one lesser spotted HiVizMan, one grizzled Mountie and a sheep chasing Welshman.

Sorry you missed it due to that work thing (I'm back t mill next week).

I'll pm next ride details soon - Sat or Sun good for you?

TTFN,

Steve T
