Heartfelt Thanks

Tuesday, June 5th, 2007

I would like to thank all those that made my trip so wonderful. Thanks to Colin and Carol for organising the whole thing and adding Harley riders to my list of top people. Also Dave and Jacqui for putting me up in Shetland and helping me with my riding skills (unfortunately I don’t have good […]

By Bicycle

Monday, June 4th, 2007

Riding to the gym this morning was weird after spending a week on the motorbike. Actually I don’t think that riding for 13 hours straight yesterday was so great for my hearing as my ears were still ringing this morning even though I had been using my specially moulded earplugs from (www.hearingprotection.co.uk. I had seen […]

Test of Endurance

Sunday, June 3rd, 2007

On the way back from Orkney I was going to take Sunday, Monday, Tuesday to stop and take photos of the various land marks from the Round Britain Rally. After spending some time perusing the map of where they were I decided to forgo the few that were out of the way and just concentrate […]

Jewels of Orkney

Saturday, June 2nd, 2007

If I had known that the Orkney Islands were famous for their jewellery making maybe I wouldn’t have changed my ferry ticket to come back a day earlier. As it was I only had one day in Orkney. Unfortunately it wasn’t the best weather either so the landscape wasn’t really shown to it’s best. On […]

Shetland Island Cruisers Overseas (SICO) Member

Friday, June 1st, 2007

On Friday morning we were forced out of cabins after a few hours sleep an hour before docking in Lerwick. As hard it was the sight of Lerwick in the sun was worthwhile. After a couple of hours rest I finally headed off to see the puffins. I have wanted to go to the Orkney […]

Published Photographer and Motor Sport Journalist

Thursday, May 31st, 2007

Thursday was our last day in the Faroe Islands before catching the overnight ferry back to the Lerwick. Last year when the Shetland Island Cruisers had come up for a visit they had brought along a journalist with them so there was a misunderstanding and they thought that I was also a journalist – I […]

Tonnes of Time to Think

Wednesday, May 30th, 2007

On the Saturday in Shetland I had checked my email before going riding and I had an email about the roof leaking again, the vacuum not working, one from my business partner in Turkey and one from my mother saying I needed to sort something out in New Zealand. So I spent a lot of […]

Kirks and Drinks

Tuesday, May 29th, 2007

On Tuesday I woke up ready to ride after not drinking at all on Monday. My motorcycle journey up from London at 55 miles an hour had well prepared me for biking in the Faroe Islands where the speed limit is 80 kms per hour (about 50 miles per hour). Though no one had prepared […]

Trikes and Tunnels

Monday, May 28th, 2007

When the NorrÅ‘na docked in Tórshavn on Monday morning I was a bit worse for wear after an enjoyable night socialising with Shetland, Faroe and Icelandic motor bikers. For the first few hours we hung around the local Harley dealer who feed us until we could check into our bed and breakfast and afterwards took […]

Sitting in a Side Car

Sunday, May 27th, 2007

Dave who put me up for my night in Shetland is a qualified bike instructor and gave me a few pointers on not dumping my bike as I changed down a gear and rather easing out on the clutch and to roll my hand over the front brake. It was good as with all the […]
