Early start today for the Easter LDNT spin.
Another one of the long distance navigation trials, this time starting in Doon. We were greeted early on by wind and hail, but it’s December 29th – it was always going to be a cold one. The terrain was mixed, mostly forestry trails, some road, […]
Kilfenora was the starting point and most of today’s waypoints were in or around the Burren. The new xTrainer was brought out for the run today, she has about 10 hours up now, so the suspension is bedding in at this stage. The front end […]
We had a core group of 6 riders, but our group increased as the day went on, as it does. We picked up a couple of neighbours from the campsite just before the night stage, and then three more classic smokers joined us on Saturday […]
The April edition of the Long Distance Navigation Trials series saw our team of dedicated adventurers go into follow-the-leader mode. Not surprisingly we still managed to find ourselves split from the main group and down some slippery wet mud trail .. fun times :o)
A few of us came down to Cork today in the hopes of a nice trail ride around a well known enduro circuit. We weren’t fully prepared for the snow though, and there were smiles all around as we got ourselves completely engrossed in the […]
So the Husaberg has a fuel pump issue and won’t start. But fear not!! Murph, our fearless handyman has a plan B. The off-road capable, always ready, Honda Cub 90.
Well.. another year, another Paddy Dakar. This year was a bit of a wash out, or maps were wet, the big ‘berg was having fuel pump problems, there was a broken chain on a CRF, just nothing seemed to be going our way .. so […]
Not fully healed from the bad off at White Mountain last month, so it’s a good thing we took it handy in Glendalough. It was a tough course, no doubt, but being complete pussies, we managed to stop for snacks and photos every now and […]
I had a bad off on the first timed section and landed hard on my right shoulder. Managed to get back on the bike and complete the lap, but couldn’t ride at any real pace, was just limping back to park ferme to return my […]
So, after busting my wheel bearings recently, it looked like I wasn’t going to make it to this years Paddy Dakar. But then. At the last minute. . a rear wheel belonging to a CRF250R became available. Ok, so its a 19″ instead of 18″ […]
Found some nice trails. And some nice bogland. Nice soft bogland. With holes. Big holes that could swallow a bike. Was fun dragging her out.. you know one of the best qualities of a dirtbike in a boghole is the way the back tyre digs […]
On Friday afternoon a bunch of the guys and I headed towards Doon in Co.Limerick for the Paddy Dakar. Gazebos were raised, BBQs were lit, tyres were kicked, burgers devoured, and one or two beverages may have been consumed. It was a grand old weekend. […]
I mounted a GoPro Hero3+ onto a rear facing snake-arm that attached to the peak of my helmet for some reverse view photographic experimentation. Shot in PES mode, and captured a still image every few seconds or so until I got bored and went home […]
Out exploring the hills and trails around Co.Clare on the CRF250X. Found some new trails, some lakes, took some pictures, had a blast!
