    Wee hurl in the cauld - Scotland curry trip

    Hi Gadgies,

    As I said in my opening post....I had a run down to see my daughter for a wee visit (and a curry....honest dad I'm not hungry). I took some photos on the way. At last I've got round to uploading them.

    The bag on the back is actually a HG tank bag (too box still in the shop). I needed it for carrying a change of clothes and my trusty Sambas. I didn't want to put the panny's on just for that.

    Although it was cold on the day....at least it stayed dry:) I only got a wee bit cold (fingers and toes...should have put on thick socks...doh!) near the end of the trip (5-10 miles near the coast) when it was 0deg for the last 50-60 miles. I can give a big thumbs up to my HG textile jacket and HG rocket leather trousers. Comfy and warm the whole day. Also thumps up for Daytona boots and my HG mitts over my summer gloves.

    Anyway, the trip was from Peterhead down through Aberdeen, Dundee, Perth, Striling, Glasgow and ending up in Greenock at my daughters. A wee walkaround with her and the son-in-law, the said curry, and back home again. Loved the whole day...great bike for that type of thing for me.

    The first picture is around Aberdeenshire, then a couple overlooking the Cylde from Greenock, and finally the clocks when I got home to Peterhead later that evening. 415miles round trip.

    PS excuse the crud on the bike!!!!

    Sounds like you had a good but chilly trip, and 415 miles is a long way at 0°C!
    I'd love a curry too, but they are few and far between over here  :003: ...another reason for coming to the UK in July.

    Now get that bike cleaned  :745:

    PS. Now did you get on with the touring screen?

    Only the last 50-60 were )deg. It was around 3-4degs during the day. Still chilly though.

    I like the taller screen because the OE caused a lot of wind noise around my head. The taller screen seems to ease it quite a bit. Was thinking of trying a different one....maybe one with a lip on it. maybe someone can advise on that before I go and splash out money on one.

    As you mostly all know I also have a Tuono. I don't get the same buffing on it due to the much lower screen, and it seems to let my helmets do it's work. (Aria Quantum or RX7)....however, I don't get so much weather procection either on the Tuono.

    I've only ever heard the term 'gadgie' from the Gardner, is it Len, in Stella street. What does it mean?

    I'm serious by the way.
