santa rendeer 🆒

I thought I would pop this up after meeting so many new faces during the year and a great weekend up north last weekend.

Date for Diary: The Christmas Brunch came up and seems the usual venue, Stradbally Fayre, Saturday 27th December. About 11am to 1pm or so to allow every one travel in daylight and be home in time for family matters.

Same rule as last year, any means of transport rather than miss out because of weather. I think Alex will come along and hopefully Ditte and a cool Estrella too.

I will bring extra Christmas Puddings.


Any K riders visiting over here at Christmas are very welcome too. Its just 6 miles on N80 from Portlaoise J17 on M7.


Update 5th November:

The child bride says she'll be glad to get some peace on the Saturday.Sleep
There'll be three, warm, dry seats available if the weather is dodgy.
No, it's not the K16.

Sounds to me like you might be checking up with GMcQ on the Dai so you can make your Markzz and Squig one more in!!

Excellent stuff.

Still waiting to find out who draws the standby short-straws for Dec 25-28 and Dec 31/Jan 1st. Murphy says I'm bound to get at least one of them and most likely on the most inconvenient day.

Typical, never mind the tropical beaches, Food and weather. Its always the first thought in everybody's mind.. I ve been married to one for the past 20 years.And no I didn't buy her on the net.. 
I suppose Its like the Irish portrayed as a bunch of pissheads.. hmmm Maybe that's not the best comparison  

I ve been off line for awhile, i'll have a look thru site to see what yer upto and see. clocked another 1500miles since last meeting.

Pity I didn't catch this sooner, I would of loved to dragged you guys up towards roundstone on the waw route..
PS. those of you virgin to the Burren roads..one piece of advice...

Slow in, Fast out..never take a blind corner for granted here. Besides that its all good. .
Also, only buy fuel from proper places like Topaz  etc.. it seems like these cheap fuel places have learned to add homeheating oil to petrol, to make a few Squids.. Unfortunately this tends to destroy pistons 

sounds good. I ll probably see you all then. 
easy now ted..

Well we still have Saturday free for a  ride out  Very Happy

Have ridden around Ireland and the Burren before so know what it can be like. Many years ago we had a two week tour of North & South. The weather was at least consistent, well it rained every day. The waterproofs were just thrown in the bin when we got back home. Still had a great time though!

Not wishing to hijack your Christmas Brunch thread.............

Yes, happy to go for a run on Saturday. We need to arrange a time and meeting point tonight though as I will be away early in the morning, getting back home about lunch time and then be setting off for the ride up to Holyhead. I could chat to some of the BMriders group tomorrow at the Travel Lodge in Holyhead and see if they want to tag along.

How far are you from Renvyle?

INCOMING MEMBER:

Picked up this afternoon on an Irish forum....appropriately replied to by Avenger GT and pointed in our direction.....

Looks like we may have an Irish Becky coming on board. Hopefully Magda will join our Christmas brunch. Got to get Avenger GT along too. We have to be on our best behaviour and make a good impression here. .....


Hello everyone,

My name is Magda, I moved to Ireland two months ago and I bought my first bike last Friday... Smile

It is a beautiful vintage BMW K100, which looks a bit as a Russian submarine or a tank, but runs smoothly as an S-Class Mercedes. I have big plans for it.

I can't wait to have it insured & registered and ride!!

I am a newbie, so there is no racing with me for now.

I will watch you & join events once my bike is ON.


Take care!!

Now about this thing of getting the most Ks in the one place.......St Patricks weekend outing 2015??.......How about the guys down under organising a similar meet up?


Update 6th November: Magda joined up today...JediGril.....welcome!

I told them that I'd ring them closer to the day with numbers, so they can put on an extra staff member (and/or kill another pig).

Just thought I'd bring the thread to the top again as there's only ten more sleeps to go, as my grandkids would say.
Short of me getting the dreaded lurgy, that was the year before last, dose of the flu, I'll be taking the car down.
Seat available for anyone who would like a lift down.

If the weather is like today we might be able to bring a bike.

 I have just been out for a spin testing the Corbin seat I acquired off Corkboy.

It is a great day and roads are dry around Dublin, so maybe time to also take out the K1.
