Another sunny Sunday, another shoreline spin. From Kilmuirs to Largs, nice fast roads, (even though we went no faster than the speed limit.) Largs on a dry Sunday is always busy, and you have always got other keen bikers coming up to chat to you about your bike, bike clothing, bike trips, bike modifications and... Continue Reading →

Must be nice to be Gotham City's billionaire, with your own research and development department, head of your own company, have a mansion and be Batman.
