Well I had a good ride up to Callander yesterday. Took 8 hrs ride time the scenic route there from Holmfirth West Yorkshire. Went up the east side A19 then barnard castle, Alston, Bellingham then A68 Edinburgh. The A68 was a far better road than expected so I was pleasantly surprised. Dufftown today

Well I’ve just stumbled by accident on the ‘Green wellie’ if that’s what your all on about? Just staying at the big MGM Muthu hotel tonight.

Never done it. How does it compare to the Blairgowrie to Braemar road?

That's a favourite of mine.

@Tigcraft . Lookin good mate. Are you heading back south over the weekend?
Your really missing out if your coming up that road and don’t finish it by traveling the lecht road to either Aviemore or even better the moors road to Nairn, one of the best routes in central Scotland in my opinion.
im in Forres at the moment but in a transit van rather than bike.

On the plus side, finally managed to fit the Puig hugger. Thanks to @BaldyDave 's recommendation of the R1200R (to 2014) fitting kit for the Abba stand, finally managed to get the back wheel off the ground and get the hugger on.

The Abba stand is still far easier to use than a normal paddock stand IMO.
Hi, I have both the Skylift and the superbike stand but no fitting kit yet, what exact kit is it I need ? I looked at the bike and didn't think it would work somehow, I have the kit for my GS and KTM, still have the kits for my Ducati S2r and VFR 800F (both sold now).
I got a Constand with my Racer but tbh it's a bit flimsy and I don't trust it, certainly nowhere near the quality build of Abba or Gubellini.

Hope you can help guys and maybe we'll meet up one day, I'm in Ayrshire.

Might not have! Went on a back road to Dufftown that was barren, could it have been that one? The asphalt was a sand colour and no other vehicles on it for miles, the bends were perfect!! Fast, smooth and it made you push to extremes.

I bought the R1200S/R (up to 14) fitting kit. You do have to zip tie the pegs up, but that's no big deal.

Aiming for about 13:00-ish, just depends on how long it takes.

Any pictures of your bikes on the stand, I can't see how or where it connects compared to the other kits I have.
