We hit the road early this morning to make full use of the limited daylight that was available. There was no need really though, as we were done by 1pm. Still, was handy to get home and have the bikes washed and put away while […]
A couple of spins to Tipp over the weekend saw us explore some old, and some new trails, and make some new friends too. It’s great when you meet another group of riders that you kinda know to see from previous events, but don’t really […]
It looked like there’d be 5 of us going for what I’d describe as an exploratory spin. Some good trails, some known terrain, but in an area we don’t often visit, so it was always going to double up as both a trail ride, and […]
An unexpected ‘who’s going for a spin later?’ message in our WhatsApp group led to the biggest (and most spontaneous) woods spin in ages as SEVEN of us arrived out to see how well our bike lights lit up the path under this magic canopy of trees. […]
Not been up around the Lough Atorick area ever, and had a day to spare. The TE300 is going in for an engine rebuild soon so took her out on one last spin before the maintenance. For a first day in a new area I […]
It was a miserable Wednesday, and the only thing to brighten it up was to take a spin. Seeing as it was a solo spin I figured I’d take it easy and bring a couple of old cameras to record a short video from different […]
The run that very very nearly didn’t happen!! Between the solo recce on Friday, and the actual run on Monday, some bike issues were discovered. The rear of the airbox had separated from the left subframe rail. Rear wheel bearings on brake side were goosed. […]
Had a great day out at this ‘Roadbook’ event. There were fast sections, technically challenging obstacles, punctures, and some laughs too. Great bunch of guys n girls and a great event. Huge thanks to all the organisers :o)
A lot of erosion from the recent rains have been tearing up some of those trails and created some deep ruts that you really want to avoid. The mud was slippery as feck and some of the trails were rockier than normal. Dropped the bike […]
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 […]
I seen that Philip up at HTM offroad had a low hour used TE300 in. It looked good in the pictures, fresh rebuild w/piston at 55hrs. It was lovely. I had to buy it.
