    Default Query: Motorcycling in Scotland

    Hi Friends,

    I will be in Scotland in the first week of August later this year. I have one-day in hand where nothing is planned as of now. I was thinking of doing a day of biking starting from Edinburgh, start in the morning and return by evening.

    Does anyone have any pointers for bike rentals or better still one-day organised tours? I tried searching on the internet and trying through my travel agent as well but not much so far. The only one I have got is Saltire Suzuki based in Edinburgh. Anyone has experience with this dealer?

    Also would need tips on what route to take for a day and general guidelines for riding in UK.

    Thanks in advance.

    Keep Riding

    Hope you did this ride..! Try the ride from Edinburgh - Loch Lomond - Glencoe and back to Edinburgh. Just go with whatever bike is available...even a CBR250R will be perfect as the speed limit is 50mph throughout this route / Scotland. My wife and I did London - Isle of Skye (NW Scotalnd) and back on my Suzuki VStrom 650 in 2012.

    Just for one day? Europe - Public transport rocks. Use public transport, do some good site seeing, visit some famous places & come back to India in one piece. Keep the lust of riding in abroad when you will have to stay for longer terms. It's simply not advisable to rent out a motorcycle for a day.
