Club weekend trip to Mull & Iona – Some photos from the trip to Mull on a very wet weekend, but the sun did shine while we visited Iona.
September Club Run – Only 3 riders and machines turned up for Saturdays club run to Portsoy. Nice steady run on a warm, bright sunny day. One stop at Buckie harbour to stretch the legs and lunch at Portsoy, then 2 took a run down to Dufftown. Nice day out.
Older biker and small cc run – Inverness to Fort Augustus September. Four brave souls turned up to to this run with 2 old bikes and 2 newer machines. The run was a little wet, but it had its dry moments. Brian Fieldsend lead the run, around by Nairnside, under the A9 and on to White Bridge for lunch, then down to Fort Augustus for fuel and then a ride back to Inverness in the wet.
August club run to Kyle & Eilean Donnan Castle
Orkney trip by Peter & Alan – strange who you meet, Bert? Tactors by the dozen, bikes by the few.

Just for info as I missed this club run – Today Wednesday 2nd Aug took a run, with Colin Rose, up to Lairg via Shin Falls then on to Rogart and round to Brora & home. The sun shone and got some interesting photos. Shinn has a new cafe and a electric charging point, Lairg was nice and sunny, relaxing, Rogart station very interesting. Neil

Loch Ness Rally 2017 – For raffle, trophy winners and photos, see gallery LNR 2017.
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.
