I Used To Have One Of Those

About This Club

All of Scotland
  1. What's new in this club
  2. In East Lothian, Drift Cafe by Tantallon Castle is hipster and fancy, often busy, but with the best views in the world, I’m not surprised. Good coffee, cake and soup. if lucky enough to get inside table, notice how they are carefully arranged so no table totally blocks the view for others. also E Lothian, Glenkinchie Distillery is v pretty (thats why Diageo bought it, and I believe closed a better bit less-picturesque one), not been inside as on bike. Food truck outside tho!
  3. I think that should have been Que sera sera, in case a few Pedants are reading.
  4. Great Pics, Bike and owner both looking well. You are like me I manage to post a photograph and then the next time I try it takes me all day. Che Sera Sera as they say.
  5. This is the third time ive tried to post photo,s . if at first you don't succeed etc Oban1
  6. This appeared in the bike press maybe mid-80s with the slogan (approx) "Score 2 out of 3 and you could be working for us." I can't remember the name of the despatch company. It's been on the wall in my garage for a number of years and makes me smile.
  7. ...check out the pile of swarf (that's pile #2; I already tidied pile #1!). Little wishbone is still on the bike, giggling and giving me the tongs!! But it's only a matter time now...
  8. Been stuck like glue! One of the two bolts joining big Prolink wish one to swingarm on CX500EC. COBALT DRILLS, MMMMM!!
  9. On the wall of local Honda dealer Paterson (now calked Paterson ATV), April 2019, Dalbeattie, SW Scotland

    MkCX's 1980 CX500A

    A selection of photos of my 1980 A model, including it's original form in the early 80s, it's discovery in 2016 in my grandparent's garage where it had been sitting for 30 years, some rebuild progress photos and finally a few from more recent runs.
  12. Sorry Mark, just spotted your comment mid-Jan! NTV is classic high-end Honda build, but not comfiest seat (got mine refoamed for Germany last year). Tiny battery for size of engine. I put higher bars on, used to get sore shoulders after 90 min, would still like a little higher. Engine accrues speed in a "modern" manner, competent but not exciting. 55mpg urban stop-start, more out of town. Fine 2-up. Heavyish to pick up if dropped <ahem>. Mine was low mileage, dealer serviced annually, until 4 yrs before me when it was all year commuter for previous owner. This does mean a bit of cor
  13. How do you find the NTV? Theres a cheap one I was considering as change from the CG as my commute may be getting longer soon.

    BrendanO's NTV650P

    BrendanO's XBR500

    Never ridden one of these but always fancied the idea. So your dad was into bikes as well ? That explains a lot !!

    Brendan, I don't know if you were aware of this but there's a dead pheasant hanging from the back of your bike.

  18. Nov 2018. Borrowed Lawrie's ZAB while staying at his house - stunning day, beautiful autumnal colours, quite mild, and roadside snow if you look hard.
  19. The scene of Scottish CX rallies (jointly with Ariel OC) and general haven for bikers, snowsports fans, and tour buses, before it burned down.
  20. November 2015, A89 returning to Edinburgh having collected a bouldering mat bought on Ebay.
  21. Nov 2018. Borrowed Lawrie's ZAB while staying at his house - stunning day, beautiful autumnal colours, quite mild, and snow on distant mountains if you look hard.
  22. That's a very well-shot pic!
  23. Marty, you do know that Highlands And Islands is only one area of Scotland? (cue massive debate on correct current and past name for every region/county/administrative area/borough/local council and what went wrong with boundary changes. And the Beeching Axe)
  24. Thanks Mark for adding Victor - I know he was having bother getting on the site at all, so you've removed a hurdle for him. Lawrie is probably the most active member currently - he's been posting on the new site. I am unsure who else is a real member and who is a past member but turns up to stuff (like JohnnyAlpha). Oh, Paul H the baker is a current member I think.
  25. Got both of them already

    Well done Mark. Thanks for doing this. It just helps to open up interest in the site and you can also put down any events you read or hear about in Highlands and Islands.
