Another fabulous 27°C day in the July heatwave. Not a huge amount to say about this one. Four Yamahas hit the backroads and trails of the Burren earlier and put the Super Ténéré 750, a slightly newer Ténéré 700, an XT600 and a WR450F through […]
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, […]
Motivation has been a bit hard to come by of late. No problem motivating myself to get out for a spin, but the thought of sitting at the computer and posting something online just wasn’t there. This past winter seemed to almost be never ending, […]
Wild camping trip # 5, but without the wild camping this time. This time around we splashed out on a B&B, and it was amazing!!! There were pints. Many many pints. We left Clare at 10:30am on a bright Monday morning and ate road to […]
These wild camping trips are becoming a regular thing now with 4 trips under our belts .. and the fifth one only a few days away!!! The first trip was a real learning experience. My initial impression of the bike was that it felt wrong. […]
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 […]
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 […]
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. […]
Out exploring the hills and trails around Co.Clare on the CRF250X. Found some new trails, some lakes, took some pictures, had a blast!
