I am planning a trip to the UK next spring (center'd from Scotland but trips all over) Can anyone tell me of places to hire a WR for a week or 2?, I have been thinking of a WR instead of a car.

Simch, yes the plan is to register the WR for the road, I'll let you know how I get on
Did 30miles round a local track at the weekend with the bike totally standard, gonna to a few more and then de-restrict
Oh, by the way, Yamaha put engine oil in the motor at the factory, I thought it was empty and put more in only to find that when I checked the level oil was flowing out of the dipstick port...doh!
Sox: Memory Map Navigator software is good for planning trail rides & you can upload to GPS from it. £130 for OS Explorer maps for the whole of Southern UK

What's at Towcester then?
Some guys at the keep biking forum go to Hemel a lot
Ashdowns good for a blast,
Trail riding bores me lately, there's too many moaning minnies about!

Where aboot in bonnie scotland you gonna be lookin at bud?
I am planning to stay in Fort William, but open to suggestions. My family are originaly from that area.
I thought it would be better to hire a WR type bike, then a car. I just want to explore on my own and not with a tour group.

Well what do ya know!,fort william not that far away from me,jeepers that where i bought my wr!it was 6 weeks old and no a spec o dirt on it!,you really gonna enjoy your trip here!,i could ask a guy i know that owns a bike shop and is well into dirt bikes if he knows of a place to hire from or if he could sort you with a ride(not certain he could though!)
That would be great, as I'm in the early stages of planning.
I want to travel around March/April.
BTW... Do you do a lot of off-roading in the Highlands?
