Outside its a dark, November night.
Join me on the back of my K16 for a run through the Conor Pass in Co. Kerry and down into Dingle on a sunny Saturday last August.
Was doing the Irish Photo Rally that weekend and met up with Olaf that evening towards Cork.
Covered almost exactly 1000 miles from Friday to Sunday.
Roll on next Spring.

Enjoy the video.

Thanks John, nice video.

After passing the zebra, I was waiting to see a kangaroo crossing the road.

I will certainly enjoy watching it again in one or two months when I will suffer from PMS.

Not possible.... The wax is freezing on the rag and it then scratch the fiberglass.
Once in while, we wear our winter gears and go in the shed to start the engine.

Great footage and a lovely run CJ. I can't believe the Zebra van was the only thing in front of you on the way up!

Aye, only a German would drive something like that van!Cool
I think it must have been relatively quiet as it was late afternoon.
If you look closely, you might just spot a red K100RT parked at the side of the road. Unfortunately, I nodded my head at the rider just as I passed and didn't get a good shot of him.
I'm starting to get the hang of editing the footage from the gopro so I'm looking forward to getting some good movies next year.
