Went for a run up the east side of Loch Lomond today, hadn't been up that road for years.

Just north of Balmaha

Such a clean bike.  :008:

Outside the Rowardennan hotel. Didn't get in becuase my boots were so dirty.  :005:

The end of the road just past the hotel. It's a long walk from here to Fort William for those West Highland Way walkers. :082: :112: :037:

Time to head back home now and give this bike a bath.  :821:

Thanks for the photos, I haven't been up that way since around 1990! My ancestral homelands, early burial grounds on one of the small islands there.

It's a pleasure. That's interesting. I spent a lot of my teenage youth on the loch. I have only ever visited Incmurrin and Inchmoan islands. Balmaha has totally changed from what I remember. The ride brought back happy memories.

That's a nice area - Balmaha has grown, hasn't it?

Used to be a favourite family spot in the 60's, when we had the speedboat, the single track road up to Rowardennan always surprises me now, never remember it being so narrow.....

Ha!Ha! Those were the days - 12 foot boat, 40hp Johnson outboard - speeding around Loch Lomond before it had a speed limit!!

That's interesting as I spent most of the 70's down there at the weekend. My late friend was a car dealer and had a few boats over the years. He had a Fletcher Arrowbolt at one time and a Birchwood cabin cruiser, another friend of his had the Fletcher Arrowsport. We spent a lot of time at the Duck Bay and went across to Inchmurrin for drinks also. He used to water ski and so did his mates, but I was never a water sport person, just loved the speed and freedom of the boats. I have many stories about our times down there, it was great.

2nd ride on the bike.
Forecast was for a dry day today so I rode the CB500x to work this morning. Sun came out a bit later so I took 1/2 a day off and headed out on the bike.

Look there's some blue sky



Time for a coffee stop



What's that bright thing in the sky?



170 miles from Plymouth turning around at Cullompton. Mainly un-named roads (the sort where grass is growing in the middle!). Left work at 11:30 and got home about 6:30 pm

Bike is in need of a clean. Took this for the "Best Rear Hugger" post but Applecorp has already decided.

These are pictures from various trips my friend Tony and I have done. You will see his old KLR in some, and his new 2016 Tan CB500X in others.
All pictures are from Washington state, some Western and some Eastern. The one with the sunset is from my property in the Yakima valley.
 





Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!

On holiday in New Zealand and just had a great afternoon on my son-in-law's family's farm, riding one of their CRF230F's on gravel roads, farm tracks, ridges and hillsides for a bit of huntin', shootin' and fishin'.......

Not great at any of them, but good fun.....especially the bike which made me look very capable off road!!

And the photo shows my riding gear - plus a baseball cap and a pair of trainers.....typical farm riding, no protective gear, but it made it even more exciting!!  :156:

Leafing through my usual motorcycle websites, and on this one I found......me!  What a surprise!!

This was a couple of years ago, and obviously with my previous bike.  Good (long) day ride though.......!  :001:
