Great photos, some stunning scenery there when the weather is good.

The roads look amazingly quiet, I guess it was either out of season or early before the coach loads of tourists appeared !

Weather makes the difference for sure. It was first or 2nd week september, 15 years ago, before the NC500 ruined it.

Did a similar 2 day trip a few years ago, Oct 2015 I think. Drove from Kendal to Ullapool the first day, via Mallaig, Skye & Applecross.
Day 2 was Ullapool, Scourie, Cape Wraith, Altnaharra then back home... Some pics from day 2

Some stunning scenery and photos. Been up there in car a few times but I haven't got further than Ayrshire on the bike. Was all set to do it this year but never made it due to covid the weather makes all the difference to a trip like that.
I had a Mille R myself a good few years ago, the earlier version though. Great bike let down by a few niggling faults, Ohlins fork seals, sprag clutch, water in clocks and a dinged frame after it toppled off the dodgy sidestand to name a few lol.

You need to get up there mate, let me know if you need any routes as i can help with the best roads etc.

I had a black/red mille r and wrote it off at 5 weeks old, hit a small stone with my knee down and washed out the front, not a scratch or bruise and this was at about 80mph. Bought the bike back of insurance and converted it to track only, had some good fun on it. Had 3 Aprilias at one time as can be seen in pics. I now have an old Futura, a couple of RC8R's and a BMWRT1200 for touring on. Not thrown a leg over a bike this year due to covid, hopefuly make up for it next year though. An extra 1 .5 horsepower in bottom pic;)

Only managed about 2000 miles myself this year as opposed to my usual 6 to 8 thousand

Looks like your road trip cost you a new tyre!, bet the Prilla was great fun on those roads!.
More than envious of your collection!

Beautiful landscapes and motor cycles as well. Drove cycles for 44 years and always loved my trips.

Beautiful bikes and wonderful engineering but I would not get on one for a pension.
Too many people get killed on them through no fault of their own.
