Greetings from Argyll and Bute, Scotland

Post  tomocr on Sun Jul 13, 2014 8:10 pm

Thought I'd best say hello seeing as I have asked for advice.
Living in Scotland. Views are spectacular. Midges are dire.
So. My toys list at the moment include my 1998 XR400r and my 2001 XR650r. Both being set up for longer rides, not RTW, just a few hundred miles or so.
Basic mods on both bikes include the long range tanks and 12v auxiliary socket. The wee 4 has had a new Wiseco piston fitted as there was no paperwork with regards to servicing. Same story with the BRP so she'll be getting the same treatment soon.
I hope to get some good gen from this forum and also to help other folk out if I can.
Gary.

Alright Baz. Good to see I'm not the only BRP rider in the village. Any good trails round your way?

Not much round here, there is a practice track at Irvine but no trails as such.
Although we have the right to roam anywhere in Scotland we can't use our our bikes to do so. tears 
South of the border is a different story, loads of trails down there.
Anything up your way?
