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″ […]
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!
We’ve been gowling around this nifty fifty racing the past while, so it’s only right to put up a short video of our antics. This is me, starting the race and going well for the first two laps till the inevitable happens. I mean, it […]
In 1996, at the tender young age of 18, I went off and joined the Army. Why? I’m not really sure. I wasn’t sure then. I’m not sure now, but it seemed like an ok idea at the time. My 14 years in the Irish […]
