Bert, you really need to get out on your K more often instead of playing on the computer.

2 degrees outside and it starts to snow.
Big storm expected on Tuesday. Maybe 30 cms or almost a foot. No rides for at least 2 to 3 more weeks.

Aw c'mon Bert. We all thought that's why you bought the sidecar outfit.

The outfit is still in my shop, and I am working on the electrical.
I just finished installing a radio, and had to redo the whole electrical for the accessories. Now everything is on fuses and relays (5 of them).
I still have to rewire the outfit, but that will be the easy part.

Next time I'm going to arrange better weather for my trip down there! First 30 miles at around 25-30 mph in freezing fog with -1c. I would have turned back but Stephen had posted that morning that the sun was shining in Dublin, so I carried on.
Sure enough, just over the border and the sun came out and dry motorway. Up to 80mph(ish), Officer.
And this was the sight that awaited...
Irish Eccentrics Patricks Day/Weekend. - Page 2 20130312
Almost. Stephen was waiting for us at the wrong Costa Coffee.
So that was four ruffy, tuffy motorcyclists for our trip.

Onwards to the New Grange visitor centre which was only a few miles down the road.This is a World Heritage Site and was built over 5000 years ago as a Neolithic tomb. Well worth the visit. It has a small window set so that it only lets light in for 17 minutes when the sun comes up on the shortest day. Nothing the rest of the year. They have a light to imitate this in the tour, but boy, its dark until that light comes on. Very spooky.
Great value. Only 6 euros including the minibus to the mound and guided tour. They even brought us back, too!

Irish Eccentrics Patricks Day/Weekend. - Page 2 20130317

Irish Eccentrics Patricks Day/Weekend. - Page 2 20130318

On we went along some really lovely roads. They would be marvellous in the summer months, although, it was dry and sunny with the temp about 10C.
Stopped for a bite of lunch in Navan. We had to abandon part of the planned route because we were talking too much.
Travelled on to Trim where they have a great castle. This was where the movie, Braveheart was filmed.

Irish Eccentrics Patricks Day/Weekend. - Page 2 Dscf1813

Irish Eccentrics Patricks Day/Weekend. - Page 2 Dscf1814

Here's one for our Australian brethren.

Irish Eccentrics Patricks Day/Weekend. - Page 2 Dscf1811

Notice the wall in the middle of the photo. This is what remains of the 'New Trim Gaol' where prisoners in Ireland where first transported to Australia from. Bring back any memories for older forum members?

While paying to get into the castle, the lady in the kiosk was going to give me a 'senior' ticket! She said that she had been looking at Stephen who was standing behind me. I think that she either had a squint or was in love and looking for a sugar daddy in Stephen.

Here's one from the top of the castle down to where Will(88) and me had parked.

Irish Eccentrics Patricks Day/Weekend. - Page 2 Dscf1812

Unfortunately, Will(88) had to part company at this point and the three of us made our way to the Hill of Tara, where they used to crown the kings of Ireland.

Irish Eccentrics Patricks Day/Weekend. - Page 2 20130316

There's not a lot to see but its a terrific viewpoint and you can see for miles in all directions.
We parted company at this point as the other two were heading south and the weather looked like it would close in soon. It did for me anyway!
We missed you, Olaf. You would have enjoyed it, especially with your interest in Irish history. Although, we may have had to gag you before the end of the day!
Hope I haven't bored you all with too many photos.

Travelling back up the motorway, I was about 40 miles from home when the temperature dropped to zero and I ran into a big hailstone shower. From then on, it was sleet and it didn't get any warmer. Wife couldn't believe we had such good weather that day. She does believe me sometimes, honest.
We had a great day and are looking forward to the next one, hopefully, with a few more faces the next time.

Cold, wet and snowy/sleety here too; still I might have gone somewhere today if I didn't have a sore head from an all day rugby-fest yesterday.

For 88KE,
not quite the correct place to post the link, but I know you will see it here.

Think you are gonna have to move to Aus and grab this little beauty.

It is in Queensland and you will have to suffer the occasional warm day (wet or dry), but I think the colour suits you. Maybe it is your eyes.

CF, you just gave me a thought, maybe a different BMW logo for each continental forum group, the centre piece depicting the country of origin , that Irish logo is tops, can you insribe "K100.forum.com" around the bottom edge.

Charlie , you could reduce postage weight by trimming it down in parts. Very Happy

The BMW logo holds a copywrite, and any modification must be approved by BMW.
They have strict rules and even club logos cannot have anything masking the blue and white part.

The idea is great, but I honestly cannot promote it. The Irish one is the exception only for a day a year.

If people want to make their own, so be it. Wink. It will be a personal (or group decision) and the forum will not be responsible for it.

I'd like to thanks the Irish people for the amazing pictures and reports of the ride.

Next September, one of my friend will be visiting Ireland, and I wish that she can meet few of you for a cold pint (She's not a biker but she's a fun girl to party with. Great sense of humour! ).

Cheers,

CF.

Does that mean you are K-less at the moment Tom?

@ Stephen....That's a great camera you have, it makes me look nearly as tall as Simon Laughing

Finished my weekends riding today with a 150 mile run home mostly along the N80, which being a bank holiday, was very light on commercial traffic. Stopped for a spot of lunch at Stradbally Fayre and took the only parking space available outside, just to mark our spot. 10 mins later a large group of GS riders pulled in and had to use the far side of the street, damned interlopers Very Happy.

just under 500 miles up for the weekend - most enjoyable!

Thanks Tom, that's a great idea about the Irish Photo rally. I was looking up the website and I think I'll give it a go. Like it says on the site, its a great way to overcome the inertia and give me a reason to organise a run on the bike.
There's 24 spots all over Ireland and while its not a competition, there's a an award for 12 or more photos that must include your bike.

Truly excellent narrative and photos....something of the historian in you, must be to do with that famous part of Ireland you live in.

All round seems very much an excellent day, sunshine as usual. Fabulous photos, some great spots and lots of good old chat etc etc. Why would one possibly migrate from a K to anything else?

However you have cleanly eliminated any possible thoughts I could possibly have of putting my K back as a naked bike. I have distant but still vivid memories of a naked Honda 500-4 back in 1976 in freezing weather and though, never again. Despite the best of gear all it does is slow down the rate of heat loss, it cant stop it. However when I fitted that same bike with a full fairing became a fantastic comfortable long distance tourer.

I will update on the replacement K......slow progress...

Olaf, I think the ideal is to have a faired bike for the cold and a naked one for the warmer weather and a bit of fun. At least that's my proposal to the financial controller.
It would be nice to have a bike to tinker with while having one on the road.
Is your K really a write off or would it be possible to rebuild with used parts?
Might be better than taking on an unknown bike.

That is the solution CJ, I'm doubly convinced having sat on your and having my fairing for the ride west.

I think buying a second bike involves something about buying the controller a horse Crying or Very sad Check with Ajays Laughing

88KE, Comberjohn......

Then you will like this one....to set it up as a naked bike 92KK only needs a rear cowl with the cowl mounted indicators, headlight, mounts and front indicators, right hand engine cover and gasket to get back running as far as I can see. Most of my miles are done on work trips where I need all the panniers etc so naked isnt really a lot of use for me except an occasional sunny weekend. Its not a lot but my main priority is to get back on the road. I have half a plan too to take bike to France in the summer.......

It sems like we have an excellent historian in our midst, the photos and the narrative are extremely interesting and informative.....

Some lovely posts indeed....

My K is more of an insurance write off than a wreck.

Non critical items gone include pannier frame locks, both pannier mounting arms, screen, lower right hand fairing panel, 'front' fairing needs spraying, front fairing mounting spider, both mirror pods, various associated gaskets/screws and paints.

Critical items for a naked bike would be petrol tank, right hand engine cover and gasket, rear mudguard/light/indicators, round headlight/headlight fairing, radiator cowl sides handlebar mirrors.

My experience of Irish weather is very very few days where a naked bike is good for a decent run. Sun at 10degC is still freezing when you take in wind chill factor.

I costed up everything to get it back on the road as is and its looking like about €1,200 parts and paint[Motorworld mix of secondhand and new] and before adding labour of any kind. I reckon since its has 102,000 miles it will serve me better as a spares bike. It was also due new tyres, brake pads, air filter and coolant change.

Will keep us posted......

Madness!
Do you yield, sir?
YIELD? NEVER.Ulster says no. Worlds greatest sport but true madness is riding a motorcycle on open roads everyday, but the addiction is chronic and incurable and never ends until death us do part.
