Had coffee this evening with 88KE so we are still game. We probably need to make some allowance for a cold morning, would a 10 or 10:30am breakfast be realistic? Comberjohn and yourself have about 140 miles to Stradbally, I have about 110 and if Darren comes up he also has about 150 miles or so. Darren has back roads to travel. 88KE, Trapper, Tom Foley have some choices between back roads or taking long way around and staying on motorway. Rest of us are mostly motorway? I am probably going to plan to be there around 10am....?

99KK.

Today I had coffee with Tom Foley and also Corkboy.

We had a short discussion on 29th December and it does seem as if we all have domestic and family occasions in the evening, as suspected. We also have weather risk.

Proposal therefore is perhaps meet around 11 or so to overcome early morning cold/frost/darkness, enjoy a very long and leisurely brunch, and be on our way around 1-2pm. Some of us have up to 3 hours [less at K pace in good weather] which would mean back home with some degree of daylight and less evening frost risk. I will keep eye on weather but we would have some idea by 26th as to what to expect.

I would say we are eccentric enough to drive 150 miles for breakfast, coffee and chat and then go home again! I'm still in.

Well not really, as no-one has ever predicted the future. Except for me of course, when the grasshopper tried to leap across the pond, I knew the pond was too wide for any grasshopper to cross. But was that predicting the future or something else?

Would this be a meeting of minds?....since we took to the Meeting of the Waters in summer perhaps a meeting of minds is appropriate

I know with many of us having different family things and weather say 11am brunch would be good.

I am definitely mad enough for this, the degree of eccentricity [if any] is subject to the vagaries of the Minister for Finance.

Sgmayhew and myself had a truly excellent day in October so it would seem that irrespective of numbers physically present we are all present in spirit. It even seems appropriate to be typing this post while enjoying Mahler's 4th symphony.

Very important little question: are those 9 degree thingies Fahrenheits or Celsius things? I hope Celsius because it would be great to meet up.....Brunch, Christmas pudding.

Here is a little thought. How about a small gift exchange, creative so maximum expenditure say €3 wrapped but no names and put in a box so we have Christmas pressies....mad or what? Can be edible and I fancy some nice Northern soda bread.....I could offer some more wheaten bannocks...

Ha,

Some things are so good why change them......progress isnt always good.

As for 300 years in the past......Ireland wasnt such a bad place when one reads the history, it was calm, peaceful, the worlds first Yacht Club was still 7 years away from being founded in Cork, Nelson still wasnt born but some out our cities were in great shape.

Strauss in the background just now........ah yes isnt progress funny. The music is so much from another time......but Linn is so much in the now.

Anyway I am looking forward to meet up! I have my Santa hat ready.....batteries charged. santa

If Olaf offers euros I would take them and keep for 5/6 years and then you will have a head start when the stirling area changes to the Euro. I think the pound is from Italy back in history.

I couldn't resist stopping for lunch today at our meeting point whilst passing back from the Mother in Laws "en famile" as they say. Forecast may mean a damp start but conditions set to improve for the homeward leg. Keep a watch with Met Eireann 5 day forcast.

I arrived home to find the coolant in a puddle under the bike but its just a perished hose to the expansion bottle. Should be able to sort that from some bits in the shed and make the meet.

From the Met Eireann web site "SATURDAY and SUNDAY will be showery days generally, although parts of the east and southeast may enjoy some dry, bright periods on both days. It may also be cold enough in the far North for showers to turn wintry, but generally temperatures will be around normal for the time of year, though it will probably feel cold in blustery westerly winds." Might need those sun glasses CJ Cool (but not on the way home)

Safe riding and all the very best for 2013

Trapper all the best to you for 2013 too. Sorry you cant make Saturday but we will have more opportunities during the year.

I was looking at www.met.ie and the rainfall for Saturday does not look too bad although showers are called up. I think us poor lads in the south west might be starting out in rain but looks like it will dry up and will be dry for everyone else. Am still on for Saturday, looking forward to it now. Is 11am a good time? Seems to work well for weather and home for early evening....

ComberJohn let me know if you are still on, will bring some of those wheaten bannocks.....


Bjorn, if you need someone to get yours off the centre stand happy to oblige.

As it stands i'm still in, sat nav programmed etc but awaiting final approval from the boss. Not to keen on me driving down alone. Can one of you guys PM me a mobile number so I can text/ call in the morning to let you know if i am heading down. Chatting with John earlier, last thing he needs is a soaking/ chill & he is quite disappointed to miss the gathering.

Maybe ComberJohn knows something you guys don't?

Bad Weather: There's a fellow who is an avid rider. Actually he's a motorcycle fanatic. He has not missed a weekend of motorcycle riding in years. Every Saturday or Sunday morning he gets up very early and goes meets his buddies for a nice long ride. On this one morning, he gets up early, dresses quietly, gets his riding gear out of the closet, and goes out to the garage to prepare to leave. While out there it started raining a torrential downpour. There was snow mixed with the rain and the wind is blowing at 30 mph. He comes back into the house and turns the TV to the Weather Channel. From there he finds it's going to be bad weather all day long. So he puts his bike back into the garage and comes back inside. He quietly undresses and slips back into bed where he cuddles up to his wife's back, and whispers, "The weather out there is terrible."

To which she replies, "Can you believe my stupid husband is out riding his bike today?"

Have a fantastic time and hope the weather gods are good to you

rossco

Said you would need the sunglasses.
Looks like it was a good meet. Really sorry I couldn't make it but still feel like shit on a stick.
Looking forward to the next one.

CJ, the rain was so bad between Banbridge & Newry I was going to turn round and go back, down to 30mph (in a 70 zone)due to poor visibility. Cleared after Newry, a brief shower outside Dublin then fine the rest of the day but started to feel the chill late afternoon. Would have done you no favours.

Good company, a good feed then home by 4.30pm, 324miles done. Rumors of a meet around St Patricks day ish.

Sorry about the late reply too. I only got back at 11pm. . . .

It was a great day and as for weather...apart from the bad stuff between Banbridge and Newry it was pretty good. Yet another day of sunshine. Comberjohn was missed and we all wish him speedy recovery. And Bjorn too...

About half an hour after I got home it started to blow a gale and rain so timing was good. All in the day for me was 360 miles....

There is truth in the rumour about St Patrick's weekend ish......ideas I suppose in a new post....would south east be a good place? Trappers territory? It is accessible enough from south west, then again Strangford will always be worth another visit. Sgmayhew suggested Long Island [West Cork] which is indeed a lovely trip but its not a one day from up North or Dublin for that matter. I have no preconceived ideas.

We seem to have gravitated to Saturday meetings/runs etc....do we look at Saturday March 15th? Comberjohn's blessings seem crucial to our run of good weather.....

Happy New Year everyone....

Hi guys,

it was great to meet up with you all. I felt like the "newboy" as everyone else knew each other (apart from Ringfad - but I knew him from years ago).

We were blessed with the weather, and that cafe was brilliant.Nicest full Irish I've had in ages.

230 miles is the most I've done in a day in a long time, so I was pretty stiff by the end of it (not having the luxury of those full LT fairings and screens.

I can't make March 17th, but will definitely be up for any other one.

And I got a set of the mirror extenders - thanks Simon!
