MAY RUN – Photos from May club run to an event that happened a month ago, I blame the chair for that, as one member came on his Matchless especially for the run. 13 members turned up on a warm and cloud day, with the fear of rain looming it was decided during the run to just go to Spean Bridge instead of Fort William and return via Laggan and Newtonmore. A good run and a good day out.
Some photos from the first small cc and older machine run in May. Brian had puncture, but repaired it with one of those punture repair inflators which he had carried for years, it got him home.
First run of the year to Strathconon, maybe a new record, 22 machines assembled at Dingwall for this first run of the year.
The first optional club run for February saw a good turn out, with the run to Fort George. Weather dry and cool.
It was nice being along at the club meeting again the other night, I enjoyed it and hopefully I’ll acquaint myself with the many I don’t know in the coming months.
It didn’t enter my head at the time but I muted the idea of a charity run to aid the hospice and another lad from the Highland Biker group is taking the bull by the horns and getting things moving.
The plan at the moment is meeting at Eden court car park circa 9.00 am for a 10.45 ish set off. Date, Sunday the 2nd of April.The route is a long one heading off Gairloch direction, round the Dundonell loop and bearing right to town at the brae more junction. Obviously that wouldn’t be great for a lot of the old bikes but even if they come along to display and do a short run of their own choosing if wished and put something in the collection/buy a coffee , bacon roll it all helps. Drinks and food are going to be done by hospice volunteers.The hospice is firmly on board and we’re hoping for a decent turn out for the most worthwhile of causes. There’s something on their FB page.
Please pass the idea/details about. Thanks.
Cheers, Richard MacIntosh.

Sept Club Run – The run was to go from Inverness to Fort William & Aonach Mor chair lift, but the weather changed the plans. Instead we took a run down the old and new A9 to Newtonmore transport cafe, then on to Spean bridge for lunch, a change of plans due to the weather and home via Commando Monument and Fort Augustus. 7 rider took part with Brian only doing a short run before returning home at Carr Bridge.
3rd Small cc & Older bike run – The Sept run went from Nairn to the Keith & Dufftown Railway at Dufftown via Grantown for their Historic Vehicles Day. The reward for attending a free cuppa and a return trip on the the train to Keith Town Station. The sun shone all day, just another great day out.
August Club run to Applecross, a run with a few bites, Cliff dropped his bike going up round the tight bends, Neil had an incident with a car & Brian just fell with his bike just for the hell of it, and the sun shone, great day out for some …
Here’s a video clip from the Applecross run click here taken by a drone someone just happened to have in their topbox?
