2013 r1200gs adventure Outer Hebrides and Orkney april Motorcycle Tour
Earlier in the year I buggered off on my trusty r1200gs for 10 days to explore Harris and Lewis as well as Orkney. I have visited most of the Outer Hebrides before but have never been to the Isles of Lewis and Harris.
Harris was visually an amazing particular the Golden Road area in the south. Lewis is less mountainous but still beautiful with empty white beaches.
Orkney is packed with history and some very weird and wonderful people. Great roads and scenery and trips like this really make you realise how lucky we are to live in the UK and so close to Scotland.
I spent a few days on Harris and Lewis and about four days in Orkney. Ferries are good value for a biker and I wild camped a bit. Longest day in the saddle was Edinburgh to Ullapool via Oban and Applecross - about 440miles and it was very wet. It was fun once I'd got into the groove and the BMW r1200gs is a great bike when fully loaded. Fun but stable.
I hope you like the pictures and if you've never been to the Hebrides and Orkney get your finger out before you are just too old and fat!
