Re: Fear

I had a motorbike (only a small one) in the past. It is not really my thing. I have seen to many people die on them growing up.

Re: Fear

Hardknott Pass on a motorbike, no, but we used to go up regularly in our very basic early Mini.

The Bealach na Ba (Pass of the Cattle) to/from Applecross I've driven about a 20 times, but in a modern car - a really great drive, always rewarded by a good meal at the Applecross Inn, as well as by the amazing views.

Edit: my hysband has reminded me of a trip up the Hardknott Pass in the early 60s in an old Austin A30; the passenger had to get out and walk, as the van was really struggling to make it. Another time, in snow, the passenger sat on the bonnet to give the tyres more purchase to make it up the hill.
Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.
