I think you'd really dig it.  The roads are narrow and windey, it rains a lot, and it got the greatest pub scene.


Wait, that sounds just like our Spring Meets

This trip will be our retirement trip.  It is going to be an 18 day four wheel trip, all of it in Ireland.  

Sue and I have two nights booked in Galway at the Jurys Inn.

Congrats on your retirement, Leon.  Enjoy the trip, you'll be missed in WV.  But, Ireland (the WV of Europe IMO) is a wonderful place.  Slainte!

Looks like the top along PR13. Ran that on my Tiger last year in similar conditions. Made for a great ride without being too crazy. Smile

For those interested, I have a 200 mile dual-sport loop to the north (up to Morgantown / Cheat River) that is best done on a thumper (KLR, DR, etc), but most could be done on a big adventure bike with TKC80s and some skills. I rode that loop twice last year starting from Coopers Rock State Forest. It's a good time you bet.


Hmmm... Haven't ridden up in that neck of the woods before!

I'm not sure that my multistrada is dual enough for this sport.  The rider (me) has plenty of experience off road, just not so sure about the duc.

I hope that won't keep you from making the trip. I'll be there on a Honda Shadow (or maybe a KZ1100) - plenty of excellent on-road riding in the area. Smile

That's my issue.  There's a trip I want to do in June, but it's not set in stone.  To do it, I have to forgo other trips before it.  If it do a prior trip, I definitely can't afford the June trip.

I hate it when people can't make commitments until the last minute.
