Sunday 15:30.

After 2'444 miles I am home. Nothing horrible to report unless you want to include wet boots, or missing the group picture ranting.gif

Will do some typing later and some pics.

Will say it later but what a bunch of great people to know and ride with. I'm very proud to belong here.

Couple of days Studs. Had a few soakings during the tour, and Come Sat morning, Saga mentioned he might be travelling up so I said I'd be his wingman. was going to rest Sat anyway and have done enough
I'm getting old and 10 days of touring was killing my hip
No complaints though, loved it and the pics will show some of the goodness we had. The 900 was faultless. Doing 90mph hour after hour yesterday and today, faultless.
Will look at bar risers and peg lowers soon, oh, and new boots, mine failed big time.

Loading some pics now

Well done to cats for posting the pics. Was truly a great trip and saw some fab scenery but a long time to spend on the road .... or maybe I'm just getting old? I know, probably the latter laugh.gif
Now on 9er number 2 .....
