Another chance to get away on a wild camping trip presented itself, and it was an opportunity to not go wasted. I quickly loaded up the 500 and made tracks, this time travelling solo, and in a different direction too. The route was a bit […]
I had a new drone to test, and didn’t want to interfere with the flow of a group ride, so instead just two of us went out and did a bit of stop/start riding around the West. Took a short clip here, and a short […]
It was a beautiful Sunday morning for 3 of us to hit the trails. Summer part II might not last so we’ll take what we can. CRF250 Rally – FE250 – TE300
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 […]
Finally, after months of waiting.. after the departure date of our planned offroad tour of Spain had come, and gone, and still never happened. We should have it done by now, and be home a week already, but we’re still in lockdown. Phase 3 of […]
Pondering mortality? The never ending social distancing? The efforts to protect ourselves and our families from the terrible sickness, and at the same time thinking the queue for Lidl is possibly worse than the sickness could ever be, and we’d nearly rather try our luck […]
What a great idea. Soaking in a hot tub, with seaweed, right on the West coast of Ireland, looking out over the Atlantic ocean. Don’t take my word for it. Go do it. They move around a bit, just to keep you on your toes. […]
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 hell and some of the trails were rockier than normal. Dropped the bike […]
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 […]
Out in exploring the trails again. Super day for it. Dressed fashionably and all :o) Took the cycling bike to Dromore another day to test those new etrex maps, they seem to work really well so happy with that result too.
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 […]
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″ […]
