Harleys gathering for Thunder in the Glens 2016: 26th-29th August

 Thursday: young bikers heading for Aviemore and 
Thunder in the Glen 2016
after a brief pause in Newtonmore  
(above and below)

From Monday there have been increasing signs of Harleys and other bikes arriving for this weekend's annual Thunder in the Glens gathering in Aviemore. On Monday, while out riding my mountain bike near to the A9, I heard the unmistakable chugging, throaty gargle of a trio of Harley's making their way up to the top of the Drumochter Pass. My first Harleys of the weekend arriving several days early – rather like hearing the first cuckoo of Spring .... 

Since then there has been a gradual increase in sightings as some choose to come off the busy A9 and make their way to Aviemore through Newtonmore, Kingussie and Kincraig along what was the old A9.
