So, where are you guys these days? I am at Tyndrum today and, if the timing as relayed by public is still correct, will cross paths with you guys in Oban on the 4th.

According to telegram and whatsapp, dealing with police more than being on the road.

1) Joe crashed off in a turn due to what he claims was target fixation
2) Frankiess's rental got rearended
3) Some rando biker was overtaking the convoy while they were all overtaking indicating and t-boned the pug

Also to add to that, Joe is properly sick as well. Waiting for a call whether he'll go to a hospital tonight or in the morning.. :|

Lung infection, apparently. He's got some antibiotics, was riding the bike today, again. Looks pretty sick still, though.

Finally an update, from someone actually ON the roadtrip:
Stuff continues to happen. We have no internets 99% of the time.

Further updates will not be available until Ringmeet.
