Got this blog set up so that I can hopefully update this on the move. Its a trial run if I'm honest for possible longer events.
Anyway, for those that don't know I passed my motorcycle test last year and this is my first serious trip out. Four days to southern Ireland and around 850 miles, although the route might change slightly yet.
I will be going with Paul who is a more seasoned rider than I am, and has experience of touring on the continent, albeit some time ago.
Paul an I went for a 200 mile trip (unintentionally) a few weeks back to get a feel for the distance being covered and it was quite easy though tiring. This was hopefully giving us a feel for the distances we will be covering on each of the four days in Ireland.
So 14 days to go.....and still plenty to do. Ferries are booked as are digs in Fishguard, digs in Ireland to do and new front tyre as well as minor bike prep. Luggage is ready to go, bought some waterproofs, as it will undoubtedly rain.
