    Thanks. I enjoyed your ride vicariously. Thinking of shipping to Ireland to start off a tour of Europe.
    Cheers.

    Glad you enjoyed it. @Steve. That's an idea full of awesome. A quick trip around ireland, nip over to wales and up to the west coast of Scotland and around the top. And then onto destinations further. It would be great to have the time, money, wife that would allow me to fuck off for a few months.

    FB....just finished reading this and your other ride reports. Fantastic stuff! Dunno how I missed them before! A tip o my hat to Walter C who said in his latest RR that your reports set the standard for all others (in response, IIRC, to a nice comment you made praising his rr). Damm you're a funny one! I can see why the wife won't let you go traipsing off around the north end of Celtica for months on end.......what would she do for amusement? But c'mon man, we need more of these reports of yours! :clap:clap:clap

    Wow great report. I spent 6 months working around Ireland in the 80s when when I was 18. Had an absolutely epic weekend at Lisdoonvarna. Thanks for bringing back those memories. You've added going back to Ireland for a motorcycle trip to my must - do someday list
