Buying or selling? Any good finds?
Just buying. My partner got a few decent LPs (Porcupine Tree, Talk Talk, and 2 Peter Gabriel Albums in vinyl which she previously just had on CD). We are both Vinyl fans!

I got the original Spirit LP a small amount of folding stuff. Not the original pressing but for £10 I'm happy enough as it was in mint condition.

Tomorrow I have the day off so going to work on my Guzzi and source another battery for my 9T my second battery has not lasted well at all. First one lasted over 4 years, the replacement Yuasa is starting to give up the ghost after half that time.

Sounds like a great day out.

Up to Callander, Dufftown, Fort Augustus, and a few more places. Not been that far up on a bike and don’t have any bearings with names there.

What you will find are excellent riding roads (though the road surfaces might not be - pretty much in line with the rest of the UK).

Callander, gateway to the A82 & Glencoe, Fort William on to Loch Ness. Only downside is to be aware of traffic, even in the depths of winter, there's a lot of tourists, trucks & impatient cars.

Dufftown - whisky country.

Hi guys, well my Urban has just arrived at Motorrad central in Dalkeith.
What a glorious day for a bike ride here in central Scotland today, the temperature managed to get up to 16 degrees.
I set off at 11am for a trip up to Crieff I traveled through Glen Devon then past Gleneagles on the way to Crieff where I had organised for a set of continental TA3 to be fitted to the GS1250.
These tyres had been recommended for the bike on another forum and the difference is unbelievable, anyway I had a nice and careful ride down to Edinburgh to have a look at the bike and discuss when I could take delivery, so next Saturday has been scheduled in, just hope the weather holds out..
Looks like an excellent day for delivery. I was in Central Motorrad a few days ago and it looks absolutely gorgeous. Happy riding!

The weather was so good last week and I would have joined you for a run up to the welly if I hadn’t needed to go down south on Saturday. I agree with Muzzer it would be good to meet up for a coffee and put some faces to the names, maybe in the next couple of weeks.

I managed to get a few extras fitted to my Urban the other day, got the rear rack, Evotech tail tidy, wunderlich screen and the rear gs crudcatcher all fitted.
Photos to be loaded up soon.
Yesterday I took the bike out for a nice run to Callander, 40 miles from my house and ended up meeting CNC from this parish totally out of the blue, spent a good hour discussing all things R9T, cheers.
I then returned back home through Lochernhead down the side of the loch through Comrie ,Crieff and Gleneagles and back home, longest run so far with 110 miles clocked up on the day.
The bike is booked in for its running in service next Friday and I’m up to 300miles so another couple of decent runs around central Scotland should suffice.

Hi B,
Pretty sure I passed you going the other way today stuck behind a broken down Astra.
Great chat yesterday 👍
Tried getting some chorizo sausage rolls today but none to be had 🙁
Interested if you manage to get a meet sometime.
Yeah you did C , I enjoyed it so much I thought I would do a repeat with my mate on his Fatboy, sausage rolls were epic, I’m not sure how to remove any previous posts on this forum, maybe B Dave could advise me?I will have a look at some dates for a meet in the next few weeks if anyone else is interested?
cheers

Thanks for that advice C job done.
Anyone up for a meet next Saturday 23 April ? I suggested Powmill Milkbar previously but I’m open to other suggestions.
