After this break in transmission, will now return to normal motorcycling programming .

The best part being, that this IS the "normal programming"

Definitely closing in on Muckle Flugga/ John o' Groats

Dunnet Head is further north than John o'Groats on the mainland, but didn't visit either; I ran out of enthusiasm that day and figured I was going a lot further north than either of them anyway .....

Thanks Robbie. Scotland is like a giant Tassie, but with tartan and midges.
