Awesome pic of the bikes, buddy! Though the whole bike's not seen, whatever's seen sure makes us drool ( even if these are bikes we commonly see)!
Way to go!

Takes me back a few years - I did the drive in a Vectra TD wagon. Great car for the drive. You must post some pix and write about Passing Places!

Beautiful photos and scenery. Loved those rides as well. So we got a photographer, a nice feeling camera and Scotland, what do you expect? Keep going mate, I'm all eyes for this visual treat on display here.

@Roopakr: Your narrow and twisty picture reminded of my trip. on the twisties, where certain places its only a little more than one laner, it was awesome fun.

yeah!! not only is it wider.. but seems to have a longer wheelbase too. or may be it looks so.. There seems to be quite a space between back seat and boot door.Notice the slope above the rear wheel, little extra space for sure!!

@sawyer, simply_sunny :- Will try to put up the travel details and directions later, if that will help you plan your travel.

@pervez :- Thanks, Will post more pics soon... :-)
@gpa :- Thanks mate. No its Canon.

@Milecruncher :- Yeah too narrow,smooth and twisty roads....Risky and fun to ride.I was keep reminding myself not to push the car more ,coz I love to feel the screeching sound of the tyres when you take hard curves in speed ..LOL

Nice pics, Roopakr. The cars look almost as good as the surroundings.
