Well theres a new record for me. Eleven straight hours of twisty mountain roads at a little over 400 miles today. Important safety tip: Scotland puts steel grates in the middle of their blind curves. Over and over and over.

Some of the twisties got really tight and very narrow. I even had to go off road.


Look close at the third picture.

Another view from one of the roads and the bridge I just crossed. Many times you have to stop and wait for other traffic to come down a narrow road before you can go again.

Scooters squeeze between the cars better and have more places to park. They use Gold Wings for taxi service.
