Perth to: Aberdeen
For all rider's who like me, have experienced the EDINBURGH to MOFAT run and the MOFAT to SELKIRK run this is one not to be missed!!!!!! head for Perth (if like me coming from EDINBURGH use M90) once you arrive in perth fill up! (next stop 70miles) Then head for sign's directing you to DEESIDE TOURIST ROUTE TO ABERDEEN follow this road carfuly for about 15 miles, this get's you past all the small villages and town's outside PERTH you'll know when the route starts because there's an iron bridge you have to cross that's single track. After this point the road become's F*!ing brill it's full of fast bend's huge straights and section's of tight twistie's the trip up over Glen Shie is breath taking (FUCK SENIC VIEWS JUST NAIL IT). At Braemar it' time to fill up, and carry on to Aberdeen (more brilliant roads) Police tend to stay around small villages so if you stick to 30MPH aproaching small villages you'll be OK and so will every one else in the future Have fun and keep it rubber side down!!
Ashford to: Folkestone
On a nice warm sunny day, try taking the A20 from the Ashford roundabout J10 M20. Follow the road through some nice wide curves, and great straights, national speed limit applies to most sections, although please slow down when entering some of the more picturesque villages.....Bikers in Kent need to maintain a good image!!!!! The A20 takes you alongside the M20,although the back roads are generally empty, look out for the odd FRENCH tourist who's lost the M20..ha ha ha. Safe Riding, and if you see a copper Busa zipping around there, give us a flash!!!
Castle Donington to: Derby
From Donington Park, take the A453 to Ashby, watch the new 40 mph limits and traffic lights around D.Park. Fun time to Ashby, taking care not to hit reversing lorries in the middle of the road (true story). From Asby, take road to the right at first mini roundabout, then minor roads to Calke Abbey (brown tourist signs). Pick up and follow signs top Derby, will take you over Swarkestone bridge and to new A50. Very fast road (dual carriageway) back to M1, watch out for the black Omega, it has a video camera and hidden blue flashing lights (another true story). Thsi route has good combination of twisties and frighteningly fast stretches. If you see a big bloke on a ZZR1100, give me a wave!
Exeter to: Back to Exeter
Lovely road! 377 is 50-odd miles of twisty heaven, though surface is starting to go in places. Record is about 25 minutes !! However constant ton-plus easily poss. Narrow-ish road follows the river. Speed limits starting to pop up in stupid places, but few appearances from local Bill make these optional. Coming into Barnstaple take the (boring) A361 to Bideford - watch for Rozzers as they love this road - through the town, then join onto the A386 to Torrington (watch for some nastily sharp corners) - onto the B3220 through Beaford/Winkleigh - nice fast roads, and back onto the A377 about 15 miles before Exeter. Good route for a Sunday blast. Good weather normally brings a fair few bikers along the A377. note: Summer brings loads of tourists down here, mincing along at 20mph with their caravans. Hope you enjoy it. We have, for the last 6 years.
