Lies, all lies!! That can't be the UK, it is sunny in most of the photos!!  Crazy


The town of Beer down on the South coast.


The Youth Hostel in Beer


Name that landmark!


A more typical British day by Loch Lomond


The moors where I grew up in Derbyshire.


Remind me why I went to the Midlands when I could've stayed here?


My home town of Glossop


Fort William in Scotland




Which way is up? Wink

I feel like the bloody British tourist board now!

Off to the Lakes at Easter weekend so I ought to be able to get some nice photos of that area, maybe even with a bike in it! Wink

As you two left out Scotland, I have no choice but to remedy the omission.

Ant One simply must make a pilgrimage to any town called Beer. Right?  Lol
The walk to the west along the beach from Beer and then to Branscombe for a pint in the local is worth the trip, too.

That was my thinking exactly, it was the day after I'd bought my motorbike and I was looking on the map for somewhere to go. The word "Beer" just lept off the page and when I saw there was a Youth Hostel there I had to go Smile
I did make that walk, it was a lovely weekend when I was down there. The pub in Beer on the cliff edge was nice, fish & chips and a couple of pints sat looking out to sea. Very good  Thumbsup

So, I turn 37 this month and I've only been touring on a bike since 2005.  England was already on my must-ride before I die list.  This thread solidifies it.  

I should have at least another 30-35 years of riding left in me.  I should be able to get there someday.  


Thanks for the images.

More than 30 I hope, I am 66 and still touring. This year I am planning a long trip, as I am retired. 3 months touring, about 8 countries. All them roads and different beers, can't wait.

Here's a couple of the Wye Valley on the England/Wales border. Taken November 2006, you can see the trees changing their colours. The weather is not always so nice in November!

Glencoe - Scotland



Somewhere on the Northern Coast of Scotland



Near to the Isle of Skye



The top of Bealach Na Ba pass (pass of the cattle). The highest road in the UK, sea level -> 2000ft -> sea level in 30 miles. On single track roads with 20% gradient in places.



On the way up the pass.







The famous Castle Dornoch






I could just keep on going but I will stop there Smile Sufficed to say I am now in love with Scotland, the Highlands and the Isle of Skye particularly.

Oh one more, in response to this photo of near Lands End.



John O'Groats, the end of the road.
Not quite so dramatic a shot but the rugged coast was hidden behind an inconveniently placed house!

You just have to be here when the sun's out!  Lol

In London, we haven't seen rain for a week. Today is overcast first day for a week that hasn't been glorious. Everybody is already wondering if the reservoirs are full enough to have a dry summer.

Here's a rape field in Lincolnshire taken a couple weeks ago. And, oh, my new FJR as well.  Inlove

Thanks, but it's not new any more. I dropped it at 350 miles. It's 75 lbs. heavier and the saddle is 10mm higher than my old bike. Just enough to catch me out during one of my routine parking maneuvers. The main damage was to my ego.

You can't see the scratches when you're sitting on it, though. The bike is more refined than my 2002 model. Smooth. Very.

We're off to Brugge this weekend. I'll post some happy snaps. We'll be in the company of two hired Harleys (a birthday present) so we're keeping the mileage down and hoping for this sunny weather to continue.

Thanks. I am really enjoying the new bike. Regarding the trip report, unlike Orson's which run and run (and rightly so) if you blink, you miss mine. The link is here:
