It looks pretty simple - there is a map on the first post here:

I'm cheating and using the sat-nav.....alternatively take your lid off and listen out for the racket :whistle:

Have a safe ride up.
I take it that the timings your using are based on Google Maps? 600+ miles in 11 hrs! Me thinks you will take a little longer, but I'm regularly wrong about a lot of things ;)

Stay safe and see you there

Woohoo that's the bike all packed and filled with petrol, took it a wee run this afternoon to check the weight and it was ok, I think I seen a few of the lads at the little chef on the A82 being led my a GS,
So sometime tomorrow I will be in ullapool, leaving here between 8-9am.

I was given a wee gift from an uncle who wanted me to be seen... A Hi Viz with glasgow to ullapool 2011 embroidered on the back, so if you see me on the A82 with a wee vara and an orange hi viz give me a wave,

See you's all tomorrow

Cheers Paul

All my kit is packed, but my bike lives up the street so it won't be loaded till the morning. Managed to get my new twat nav holder fitted this afternoon, but not had time to get petrol, or check the oil, or the scottoiler or the chain :blink: so i'll still have a bit to do tomorrow.

@BABY V, @Moto Al - i'll probably be away after you so i'll drop you a text when i get to Broomfield and us weegies can compare notes on the run up ;)

I see that @Matt W and @Gundog are enjoying Moffat's finest hospitality in the Buccleuch Hotel - lucky buggers :lol:

Bike's are both loaded now, sitting ready to rock! Both also fueled up so out of here in the morning. If a dry start we'll head south to Spean bridge and see some of you on the road maybe.
Wet, we'll head west, 2hrs ETA, dry, long way round, see you at suppertime!
Bring it on folks!
Honda, the power of dreams.
