Adventure rider

I was on my way home from Achnasheen tonight and overtook a rider on an old moped laden with camping gear. i had to meet up with a supplier on the road home so i pulled in at Tarvie on the Ullapool road, the moped rider pulled in behind me. I spoke to him for a while, turns out hes a Dutch student, the ped is a 1966 Simpson Schwalba.. Which i think means swallow... He had ridden up the west coast of Scotland, over the Bealach na Ba ( highest mountain pass in Scotland ) in first gear most of the way! Up to Ullapool and was heading south to Hull to get the ferry home... We get loads of BMW GS mounted adventure riders stopping in at Achnasheen at the cafe, but none of them know true adventure...
