I am also a motorbike rider (BMW R1200GS) and this book has been discussed on one of the forums I am a member of. One of the forum members put the “Curves” routes together as .gpx files that can be downloaded into a navigation system. Unfortunately, Porsche do not allow us to import routes into the PCM + Nav, but you can still use a stand-alone Garmin satnav.

Anyway, I have copied the relevant sections from the motorbiking forum: –

Day 1. Glasgow to the Isle of Skye

https://www.dropbox.com/s/04usbooqug…Ferry.GPX?dl=0

In listing the hotels and things to see I have done nothing more than lift them out of the book, which seemed only polite and it’s a nod towards the author’s efforts. All the five days are offered up as sort of taster of Scotland, not in anyway a definitive guide to all the best ways from A to C via B. No doubt there are ‚better roads‘, cheaper, more popular or less popular places. Find your own, is all I can suggest. Similarly with the routes, I’m sure that there’ll be shouts or moans that some possible alternative part has missed out or done one thing when it should have done another. It’s all a compromise… If you know something that will knock the pants off it all, share it or keep it a secret….if you must.
