A quick spin around Ireland

A quick spin around Ireland

So made use of the dacent weather we got the other week and shot off to do the wild Atlantic way.

Starting and finishing in Dublin, headed to start off in the south at Kinsale.

twas a touch over 2500km in total spread over 5 days and sure got to know the SD990 well :biggrin_old:

It did the job very well and apart from a pitstop in galway mid trip for a new rear tyre no issues :bag:

I thought I would be able to compile the total footage (100Gb+ :ninja:) into maybe a 40 minute video. but yeahh that wont be happening so it will be a part for each day at this rate :lbhbh:

Bike recommendations – a triple ?

Bike recommendations – a triple ?

Variety being the spice of life and all that, I’ve owned a fair range of bike types over the years, but something I’ve never actually owned yet is a triple.


I’ve ridden a few – some fairly anti-social Kwack 2 strokes back in the day, and then latterly an early Triumph 900 Trident, but never had more than a short blast on any of them.


I didn’t really like the Trident btw, as I had an early 900SS at the time, and although the Triumph was quicker, it felt top heavy, and just a horrible thing to ride in comparison to the Duke. But then, maybe it was one of those things where you had to own it and get used to it for a while before you started to appreciate it properly.


Anyways, I’m at the stage where I’m thinking seriously about buying a decent triple to give one a shot. Wondering – are there any that have a bit of character/ handle not too badly/make nice noises, and would be worth thinking about running for a year or two ?
