    I've been thinking about the European ride for long time. But thinking about it does not take you anywhere I realized.
    So couple of days ago I booked a flight to Ireland.
    I've been looking at donedeal.com site for used bikes. I contacted couple of people and they said they will help me. So we'll see.

    Arrived in Dublin. I spend couple of hours here and I now understand why people will fall in love here.

    On my way to the city center. Dublin public trans operation is very good.

    So I went around to see used bikes. This place served me tea. Classy fellas.
    Good place to get service and parts.[​IMG]

    Contacted Dooby from Border Insurance for insurance need. He can insure EU bike with none EU rider he said.
    Paper work on my part for registration started.
    This is where I got my bike. I went to couple of different sellers and decided to go with them.[​IMG]

    Great bikes for the money. I Owned a 1988 TA in Los Angeles in the 90's. Enjoy the ride. I will do some riding in Spain on my R100R after June 19th. Good luck.

    In the city center of Dublin you will see this thing called Spire. It's a metal tower reaches up to 300ft in sky.[​IMG]
