Up North on the Nortons

 A long overdue run on the Nortons last weekend joined by Alex on the run up and some of the Tay Valley Norton guys, normally its on earlier in the year but for various reasons we decided to go on the weekend which strangely had very few midges. Alex arrived up Friday afternoon and we all set off after work on Friday, a stop at Tyndrum for a chippy and then a glorious very quiet run through the glen. The weekend was good but the weather on Saturday could have been better. Many of the guys set out on their own adventures on the Saturday and Phil won the prize for a few miles along a forest track road towards Glenfinnan, proving that once again the Norton Commando is a true adventure bike, especially when its clad in an adventure Blue petrol tank. We got up on Sunday to find a flat tyre on Fionas bike but campsite owner Tim came to our rescue with a compressor and after pumping it up the tyre stayed up and after a few checks on the way home it felt ok and got us home safely. The run home on Sunday was cool but dry and rounded off an enjoyable weekend, good fun, great company and nice roads, whats not to like!
