    I had the same luck in Oban with a motorhome. Car park had a height barrier so no go but absurdly cars were allowed to park in the lorry park. We, due to size, had to park in the lorry park and so carefully parked within a bus bay as it was the only one free due to the cars taking 75% of the lorry park :confounded:
    Bought a ticket and went to the Highland games.
    Came back within alotted time and a parking ticket was on the windscreen. Appealed and the pompous arse of a clerk replied acknowledging my comments and agreeing with them to a point but " sorry" to tell me the verdict still stood.
    :rolleyes:

    Nothing short of profiteering from Oban council, shame on you!

    To add insult to injury the car park is well signposted as "Free" yet we were happy to pay and buy a normal ticket for our stay under the circumstances.

    Really lucky break today, had a visit from a neighbour, who showed me a post on the local Facebook forum. Seems a dog walker had found a triumph key on a cupar motorcycles keyring. I thought that's a coincidence,, then it dawned shit that's mine,,,, Thankfully it's just been returned and I'm on my way out to pick up a bottle of wine and some chocolates as a thank you. It helps being the only triumph in the village :)

    On one of the rare occasions, today, when I actually get out on a bike. I get flagged down by an older than me geezer. Looked pretty important so did a proper stoppy next to him on double yellows. He then proceeded to tell me he has a T110 pre unit.:neutral:
    "Is it for sale?" I ask, just in case it's one of those that's been in a garage for years and he'd like to out it. "Oh no" he says "I'll never sell it."
    Jeez....."I think I'll go home now....":confused:

    I had the pleasure today because of a summer thunderstorm with my TIGER once again in "submarine mode" to "dive" my 60 km over the highway to the office. But I could also have switched to "flight mode" because the wind direction would have fit.:rolleyes:

    Am very fortunate to have just picked this up, back on a Triumph after 3 years.

    Three more pictures and a write up to follow if a tech dummy can manage it.

    The rest,
    I went to the first Antler Rally at Kilchoan on the Ardnamurchan Peninsula in 1972 and didn't get farthest travelled so I went again in 1975 and tried to do the four corners on the way but problems with the T110 meant that I didn't get to the top end. The next year on a more reliable Suzuki GT750 I got as far as Inverness before beaten by time but got the farthest travelled both times. all told I attended all the first eleven Antlers.
    2022 as birthday treat for myself I left home at 4am on Wednesday to Ardnamurchan Point,- Dunnet Head,-John O'Groats,-Lowestoft,-Lands End,-lizard Point and arrived at the Fosse Riders Clubroom in Leicester at 8.30 on Saturday morning. Job done 4 corners and end to end in one hit,, can I retire now?

    @BATEBY45 I reckon you can retire now, yes ;). What a feat - I have just had to Google the Antler Rally and educate myself!!

    STS self cancelling turn signal module. Not an easy one but some 4 hours with test bulb, soldering iron and shrink hose it's done. Just a short test run but works as expected.

    Thanks, a little rain on the A12 otherwise fine, very windy down the A9 coast road but sunny mostly. Total mileage 2,352 average speed over the 50.6 hours of travel time was 45.6 mph.
    I don't recommend Cornwall's back roads in the dark but theA30 was brilliant day and night.

    How was the road to Ardnamurchan? i did it years ago on a sports bike and hated the single track road,ive never been back since, although i have been wanting to go again now that i have a more suitable bike.it would only be a 300 mile or so round trip so it would be a nice days ride
