Complete bollocks, Richie! A Scotsman in a kilt with his dander up is one of the most fearsome sights on earth. That's why the first choice for the British Army when it came to clearing trenches during the two world wars were the Scottish regiments, particularly the Black Watch. It's widely held in military circles that there isn't a more effective trench-fighting soldier in the world than a Scottish one. Now enough of those skirt jokes or I'll send a few of the lads over to sort you out. ;-) On the other hand, a kilted Scotsman on a classic bike, I readily concede, is a ridiculous (and draughty) sight...
