Thanks Jay!

All decisions to be made nearer the time but appreciate the heads up!

Wondering if the plan is to stay in one place and different rides each day or if weíre sleeping somewhere different each night?

So far plan is as follows:

Friday - arrive at leisure and set up camp/book in accommodation, head to pub!

Saturday morning: meeting place to be decided as of yet. Maybe mountain roads, stop off for lunch somewhere near Lough Neagh (gonna find someplace with a few options and can accommodate all bikes. Parking is free everywhere here for motorcycles regardless if itís a car parking bay or not.

Saturday afternoon - short trip towards Larne for the coast road back up north.
Windy roads, steep hills, tight corners and beautiful scenery are the order of the day at this stage. Stopping off in a few places for ice creams and GoT (Game of Thrones) locations. Iíll keep these secret for now.

Saturday evening - pubs or anything else you might want to do. (There will be a list of pubs to avoid guys. Nasty places where outsiders arenít welcome - even me!)
Award to be handed over to the next ďluckyĒ biker!

Sunday - everyone heads home

Plans might change slightly but thatís the idea for now.



Also a few of you pointed out my First Bike on Scene patch.
If there is enough of an interest I can ask for a course to be held for those that can stay an extra day or travel late Sunday night?

That is an old Irish custom you are taking the piss of!
A tradition that has been passed down to me by generations of the drunk Irish!
I must admit though the street of Hawes tasted better than my home town haha.
