International Cubbing.....

 I stopped on my way home for these photos. Its the border between Northern and Southern Ireland that until the mid 90's was blocked off. It's still a notorious road for smuggling even now.

The bike is on the wrong side of the road for a good reason. Opposite was someone's house. I didn't want them to think I was taking photos of their property. Lol.

Just a note, if my front wheel (south) wanted to phone the back wheel (north) it would be charged international rates.
If the back wanted to ring the front, it too would be charged international rates but the rate would be cheaper....! Explain that to me please......?

Honda vs the world

If you haven't come across this guy before, you've got to check out his story!!!!

He is Ireland's own Sean Dillon from Wexford and he's riding his Honda C90 from Alaska to Argentina and he's having a whale of a time. There's loads of photos and videos on his site. He's actually doing what we all only dream about.... Check it out....

Bailieborough Honda Run 22/4/12

Had a great run today. I managed to dodge the rain on my way to the meeting and as the usual suspects gathered the dark clouds looked ominous.

Sure enough as we all set off the heavens opened up but it certainly didn't dampen our spirits.

The run was slower than usual due to the weather but still good fun. In all, 55 little hondas were registered.

After the run we were treated to chicken curry and rice. My luck was in today. Not only did I manage to score one of the last meals, (they ran out) but I won a brand new leather jacket in the raffle :) ..... Only problem is, is that its too small for me :(

Great day out with no major mishaps. 106 miles total. Happy Days :)
