The bike was ready. All consumables were replaced. Fresh tyres, pads, filters, bearings, you name it – it was done. All that was left to do was to go ride the actual trip that was planned. And hope to not make a complete balls of […]
A bigger roadtrip than normal was on the cards. Ideally suitable for the Tenere, but it looked like it was going to be a solo run so maybe safer to bring the KTM? Lifting a 110kg bike is a lot easier that a 210kg bike, […]
After all the talk of adventure riding, and planning and building the bike.. it was more than a little disappointing to have this Coronavirus scupper all our well laid plans. Over the past few weeks I’d been slowly toying with the idea of a more […]
So for my opinion on the 2020 KTM EXC-Fs.. I was riding the 250EXC-F, and having had a Honda CRF250X in the past I had a certain expectation on what to expect from a 250cc four stroke, but I was wrong. This bike wasn’t […]
So this all started out very innocent. I had some time off work, and I started looking at flights, not really expecting to find anything decent, because, well, just because. There’s not been a lot out there lately that caught my eye. But then, out […]
I’d been having an itch to visit the famed Silk Road for the past while. The ancient link between the Mediterranean and China. It’s an important place in the history of our planet. The finely preserved culture of Khiva and Bukhara and the legendary architecture […]
It’s one of the biggest cities in the world, but it has great public transport and is easy to get around. The friendly people and great food only add to this amazing place. It’s possibly the cleanest, safest, most diverse, animal friendly, tolerant city in […]
A very last minute trip to Thailand and Cambodia provided a welcome break from the dreary Irish winter. 30°C, no wind or rain, everyone smiling.. it was perfect !!! Found some time to get a ride in too :o)
Road trip time!! After spending a couple of days in Vancouver, attending the Fringe Fest on Granville Is. and basically getting my bearings and adjusting to local time, I flew to Calgary, picked up a one way car rental and set out with my cold […]
Road trip from Pisa, via Cinque Terre and Malcesine (Lake Garda), to Venice.
Some would say it’s a long way to go, but then some have never had Murphy’s ice cream. So yeah. Fuck the haters. Take the boat to Tarbert. Drive to dingle. See Muckross and Torc Falls while you’re down there. Make a proper day of […]
I got an unexpected week off, so decided to head over to Spain for a few days riding with Redtread. They have a fleet of fresh enough Yamaha WR250Fs which were soft and gentle, but still quick enough to have a bit of fun on. […]
The second year of the National Fleadh was coming to an end, and it was time to head away somewhere new. SAS were good enough to put on a twice a week service from Shannon to Stockholm and so it was decided.
Decided to go on a solo trip around Argentina. Starting and finishing in Buenos Aires, with a stop for a few days snow hiking in Patagonia, El Calafate & Chalten, Laguna de los Tres. And a stop for a few days in the sweltering heat […]
Berlin is such a cool city. It just fucking is.
