Yes kielder famous for its rallies in the past and it's one hell of area I love the drive from Bellingham through the borders to the T junction where you can turn left for Newcastletown or right towards Hawick and Jedburgh direction would be a fantastic place for a gathering thanks for the comments guys. I feel so lucky I live 40 mins away so I manage to go up most weekends

Someone should arrange an S2 gathering up there (cough cough - hint hint) but not in the winter when chances of it being cold, wet and horrible reduce the appeal for the soft southerners lol

Try starting and cuts out straight away and takes about 6-8 times before it doesn't cut out anymore a little annoying and cheers John!

Lovely area up there.The cutting out straight after starting sounds like it could be your immobiliser is playing up.

Hey Ant,
That road isn't so good when the fog drops down!!...when we stopped in Hawick last year, well nearby in Bonchester bridge...its a proper scary with a "the shining" vibe almost to it when your driving across the moors in the fog....

car's looking awesome as per usual

I do agree that in that part of the country the roads are mint.....

oh thats what those buttons are for....

to be honest it was that thick and what with the road profile they were almost useless as it just reflected more light back at me....anywho...

once I saw the road's in the day I realised that this was a place to bring my "Stu"
