Highlands by bike

INFORMATION DESK: YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED BY OUR PANEL OF EXPERTS
I'm a would-be traveller with a keen desire to explore the Scottish Highlands by motorbike. However, I don't actually own a bike although I hold a full biker's licence. Is there any such thing as an escorted two-wheel tour?

The Travel Editor replies: First, it is advisable to take a refresher course if you have not been on a bike for a while. Highland Rider (tel: 01506 846616) organises escorted tours of the Highlands on hired motorbikes. A five-day tour of the north-west Highlands costs pounds 598 for two riders sharing a Yamaha Sports Tourer, including full insurance, a guide, ferry crossings, b&b, route maps and AA cover.
