Re: Mobile Touch screens not working with gloves.

Google touch screen gloves.

Buy a massive pair for over your own gloves or cut off and stick the tips to your own.

Re: Help & Advice Needed - 'Roughing it' in Scotland

Some laybys have signs saying no parking overnight, usually as there is a possibility of rock falls when in the hills.

Re: Help find an alternative to my Gixer!

Sensible approach is to have a look at the Triumph adventure centre or Touratech (if they are still going) etc. etc. go on a course or three over the winter and then decide.

Re: You've got to laugh...

To be (slightly more) serious for a minute, you could try some of that fluorescent tracking dust stuff to see how the wee bugger is getting around, then block the paths.
