                Any one got a used copy they no longer want, thinking of doing a trip from Australia next year.

                        Did a trip round Arran last year as part of a 12 day tour including the NW 500. Lovely place :-)

                            Hopefully, (weather permitting),  I'll be heading to Tyndrum in May for a 4 night stay. The Kawasaki 1400 GTR Forum are having their annual meet up there.

                            I've used John G. Fergusson's guide book to help plan some day ride outs. Some of the roads, on some of the routes, do look challenging. One takes you over an old railway bridge. Having "Google Mapped" it, I emailed John for confirmation, he swiftly replied that it was ok to ride over the bridge.

                            If you are using the guide and have any comments or feedback, I'm sure John would be pleased to hear from you, https://www.tarmap.co.uk/contact

                              Hi David, Are you a former owner of one of those beasts, or do you have mates that ride them?

                                A friend & former RT (think it was an 1150) owner now owns a Kawasaki 1400 GTR. He asked me for some potential routes for the GTR meet.
                                As I'd created the routes, I asked if I could attend. The response was most welcoming, in fact, around half of those attending so far will be on various BMW models.
