Hi
welcome, please put your location (Not just Scotland cos it it Too Big) in your profile to get Local invites and advice.

A matched pair, which do you prefer? Or is it dependent on the ride? I loved the RS but it had too much weight on my wrists and neck, The RT on the other hand was a bit big sometimes

Hi,

I'm just down the road in Perthshire not far from Pitlochry. I have a '76 R60/6. a '81 R100RS and a '86 R80RT (as well as a Triumph Sprint ST but we won't mention that. 8-[ ).

There is a Northern meeting group within the club and forum but most of the meets are, inevitably, down in the borders and Fife. I've been putting forward some similar meetings a bit further North - let's say, north of the Tay. Would you be interested. Informal lunch or tea meets.

You are a lucky man - some great roads between Forres and Carrbridge/Grantown-on-Spey

Hi Rob,
I would love to have Northern Meets further North, it would be great if you can find a suitable location, let me know and I'll do the necessary to add it to the Northern Meet list for next season.

I was up that way a few weeks ago... sadly by car... had a very pleasant lunch at The Admirals in Findochty. I'll get some locations together in the general area and we'll see who's interested...
