Indeed, like this one:

Good tool eh. Is this an extra or KTM on way out? I wish Triumph would make a light weight traillie, all my chums say same, we'd all buy one. We need a knocking about versatile bike.

That looks a fantastic road, never ridden it, went up for the Scotland north tomcc summer rallies for many years, seem to fizzle out a few years ago, but they were really good, usually held over the west side to give the Aberdeen boys a ride somewhere different. Had some great times & made a lot of friends in that club. Are you in their club?

Yes, me likey, cheers mate, my Sister will probably know this as she was a Postie in Banchory 20 odd years back. Shes actually in a Nursing home now in Cruden Bay,  poor old soul but shes actually doing well and loves it, just hope they let me in to see her as theyve recently had a staff member go down with C-19

Some great roads all over the north of Scotland. That one in video only 15 mins from me so will be doing it regular.
And no not in any clubs. Just go riding with some mates but often go for a wider on me own and end up in middle of no where haha

Paul2bikes told me a while back,
Great ride, you have some lovely countryside in Oregon. Looks like the highlands of Scotland.

I had no idea until I watched your video.  Thanks for sharing.
