2015 – Scotland with a Spaniel in a Sidecar

Date of tour: June - August 2015 (10 weeks)
Distance travelled: 5000km (within the UK)

Spaniel in a sidecar

At the end of 2014, we got a dog. Since we still wanted to continue with our annual motorbike tours, and we didn't want to leave our new pooch at home for three months, in 2015 we bought a motorbike with a sidecar - a Ural 750 Retro.

We have done several motorbike tours in the UK, but this was the first time we toured with a Spaniel in a Sidecar. As well as the Ural, we also had a Moto Guzzi 1200 Stelvio with us.

We even made it into the local press!
