I had a good morning riding around the "bikers playground" that is The Campsies and The Trossachs.  Plenty of bikes out today - both motor and bicycle!  One thing to remember is that with cafe's closed you need to take your own coffee supply - I can see picnics in laybys making a comeback!!

These photos are just outside Doune, and for anyone who doesn't know the area, Doune Castle in the distance has been used in films and TV, including Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Game of Thrones and Outlander.

The river Teith is very low I noticed yesterday going over the bridge at Doune.
p.s. I was a member on this forum before, but got locked out due to those CV posts.

Getting locked out after all you've given to the forum seems very harsh..... :151:

I took this picture on the way back from a familiar place where i like to walk around a dam, but by an unusual road.
Near Ambert, in Auvergne.

It's OK under 100 km/h. Between 100 and 120 it's more physical, you feel the wind force.
Above 120 it's better to lie down on the tank :001:.

But i don't have now the unpleasant no´se provide by the ermax screen mounted ont the bike when i bought it.
