Superb write-up. IRL now on my bucket list for sure!

I may have missed it, but what kind of camera and photo-processing software did you use ? The pix are SO GOOD they have my wife packing and googling places to rent a large scoot when we go (she has a Silverwing 600 scoot).

Thanks for taking the time to do this. It was worth it!

Good to see you enjoyed your points of the black stuff. It's a national treasure.



Great write up.

A great RR and thanks for doing it.I did a similar ride in 2010 but I think you managed to cram more into your ride than I did with mine.When I was in Joey's pub in Ballymoney I was fortunate to be served by Joey's widow,a lovely woman,when Ted Simon walked in and we all had a pint of Guiness.What are the odds on that happening.
I bought a K75s for not very much to tour the UK and Ireland and liked the bike so much I brought it back to Canada.I plan on doing it again in 2015.Good luck on your next trip to Ireland with your father.

Outwardbound: Believe it or not, I used an iphone 4s and the application Pro HDR. No software, no camera, just my phone and frozen fingers.

ericGSsti: Agreed about the black stuff, I stil get wistful when I drink it here.

Velocipede: That's pretty crazy, small world. I would have loved to have met Ted, he makes my little trips look like a run to the grocery store... Not a bad idea of just buying a bike, that would be tempting if I had some serious time to kill and wanted to hit multiple countries. Not sure how I would register it being from out of country, but, when there's a will...

Pfft, the cheek of you. First of all blowing through my home town without giving it a second look - but mostly because you continued to ingest that Dublin swill when in Cork rather than switching to Murphys, the nectar of the gods! (Bonus points would have been stopping off at Franciscan Well brewery for their Chieftan IPA, which is bloody tasty!)
