Well its not exactly sunny out and im no Kevin Carter but heres a few snaps from ditch pigs last outing


This is a narrow, windy bumpy little road up the 'Vee' in the Knockmealdown Mountain range In Tipperary. The DR loves this territory.
You can Chair, Ardfinninn, Clogheen and Ballyporeen (birthplace of Ronald Reegans kin), on a clear day you can see as far as Cashel.


You can make out my house with some glasses too.


It takes in some nice stops along the way like Bay Lough.


Here it is in summer, excuse the interloper. You cant swim across this as its haunted by the witch of the knockmealdowns and is said to be bottomless


Then onto the historical Lismore Castle where the roads smooth out but are still twisty all the way to Fermoy, great fun throwing her through the bends.
And thats one of my Sunday spins, when its not lashing

The same like on german beer: getting seriously drunk
Kilkenny is one of my favorites from Ire, by the way.


How comes that you lived a spell over here?


Cheers,

Ahh Kilkenny, an acquired taste, i like it too Lars


I lived in Munich about 11 year ago when i was in college. I spent some time working on the old airport Alter Flughafen and we lived off Einsteinstrasse just near the Luchtenbergring u ban stop.
I really loved that city, still remember fondly walking about Marienplatz and cycling in Englischer Gartens in the sun wondering why there were so many naked people about lol. We used to go swimming in Olympia Zentrum and Hershing lake on the last stop of the s ban. What a place!
On the beer topic again i vaguely remember drinking the finest of beer known to humanity in Andechs served up by a silent order of monks, what a day was had!Must go back there.

Thanks for the pictures with green surroundings.
Winter has eventually decided to take control in Sweden.
250 mm of snow and -15 degrees Celcius outside at the moment as I'm getting ready for 8 hours overtime at work today(saturday).
Summer seems far away...

greetings from Roger

Hello Roger,
temperature is the same here in the middle of Germany but there's no snow where I'm living. Still training the huskies on wheels ...
Seeing your nick reminded me, that a friend of mine called our Bigs 'off-road-Katanas' referring to the beak and the whole styling, that really bears some relation to Katana-styling.
To the Irish fellows:
Iris and me could collect you in the surrounding of Cologne and lead you to Resi's home within 2 hours on main-roads or within 4 - 5 hours with enormous fun on back-roads ... But let's wait 'till spring!
Kind regards, Bambi
