Abbotsford is a nice hotel. Easy to find as well as it’s right on the main road 👍🏻

I did the NC500 last year as well. Hired a camper in the end (what a ball ache on those narrow roads). Most B and Bs were booked when we went as well but that was July time.

I’m based from Dumbarton anyway so I can suggest some decent places local to here if that’s any help for you 👍🏻

I'm usually between 140 and 160 after brimming it till the lamp comes on.

generally about 150-160 miles before the light comes on for me too. thought that was riding pretty conservatively as well  :o :lol

not for me that either. its hard to toe the line between controversial and funny and that fell just on the wrong side of it for me.

Washed all the schmoo off the bike that it got on it yesterday. Then lubed up all the pegs and side stand as they were starting to get a bit crunchy.

New pads ordered for to fit later in the week :)

Im with yamfazfan in that I have always brought cars around 3 years old and they have all seemed to be ex mobility cars very well kept.

Whilst we are on the subject lets talk about disabled parking, mainly in supermarkets, they always seem to have way too many for the amount of cars using them I mean loads. I know that you can rule out the driver as they may the designated driver but quite often I cant help thinking "whats wrong with you" they seem quite able bodied to me.

My local asda petrol station has a pump designated disabled but it is exactly the same and people have been so conditioned that no one uses it as a normal pump.

You can't just look at someone and decide they look able bodied.
Physically they might look okay, but they may have breathing difficulties in which case parking nearer to an entrance can be a huge benefit, especially in cold weather.

Indeed. Thats why we have got Grace's sign coming in up here:

To many people think disability and associate it with "wheelchair".

almost the exact same reason for me buying chinese levers Dave - the clutch was just too much of a reach. The chinese ones have been fine for me (long ones), but the anodising is tarnishing a bit as they age. for £20 its no major headache to buy another set if its a serious gripe.

And don't wonder if it's worth it - from someone who was lucky enough to have the treatment from Mike a couple of years ago - I STILL get smiles from it thousands of miles later... the full monty was worth every penny I paid.

Aye, just passing the vale of leven academy. No wonder, that was out of order. A bit of patience wouldn't have hurt him. Some of the patch guys that were there looked pretty hardcore.

I was there, but on the Pan...

Great turnout for the lad.... thought the police done well to control the ride too..

You are joking! I was about 5 bikes behind you. I kept reading the "hero" reggy and thinking "I know that bike from somewhere". Now I know why.
