It's going to be busy up there, some Maxi-Muppets are in the area along with the Ugly bunch and Lyn.
I plan an overnight in Moffet, then see whats going on, from there.
We'll do a roll call later,
Dave

OK we will keep an eye on things from here. I'm not going to move this into an announcement as it will all get too confused. Might be a plan to meet up on the 19th as mooted in the first of my posts at viewtopic.php?f=18&t=29739

Then we can arrange stuff on the hoof.

Looks like a nice Innova you have there. FI i think from the piccies. Only bettered by the Wave110i (but i would say that wouldn't i)
You know TBH the only thing that made me choose the Wave over the Innova was that it had cast wheels and it was cheap :shock: :shock:
Would suggest you consider a screen too ;)

Ah, yes. Can i ask you (blackdog) to pop your location in your profile so we can try to make sense of the logistics ?? Ta. :) :)

Blackdog,

Could you post a few close ups of your pannier rack. I would like to do something similar on mine.

We are thinking of riding the North Coast 500 in the summer. On cycles :shock:

Doesn't look like i'm going to be able to make the Scotland trip this year due to all sorts of unplanned things happening here, sorry guys.
