I see they set up a grueling obstacle course for the up and coming wannabe Ewans.

Totally, but they might do you a deal if they ever get a bike you want.
It's like the signs you see in restaraunts:
"If you like what we do, tell others, if you dont, tell us"

Some of their adventure tours are proper bone-breaking-if-you-get-it-wrong type stuff.

Ewan and Charlie McWannabes are the only ones clocking up miles ( more than your typical 10mile blast on a sunny day rider) thesedays, but it's interesting to see an Aprilia RF Factory in the showroom even if sportsbikes are dying out.

Unfortunately it's overweight gits, full of their own self importance, hobbling around talking shit and thinking they're george clooney who are only ones buying new bikes these days

It's funny because it's true

It's a wash of espresso induced euphoria amid a sea of white beards and Platinum cards.

I don't get all the bike bashing.
The more of us the less of them that try to kill us with cages.
If biker want to get 20k Gs adventures more power to them even if they don't use all the potential.

Remember sports bikes cost 20k plus now for stock blades and most won't use them to there full potential either.

New bikes are gone mad money, old bikes are still mad money but who gives a shit a bike is still a bike.
Wether it's an imperial Harley, a metric Ducati with less reliability than one Would wish for or anything with two wheels that gets you about some should keep an open mind.

It's great to see an Irish shop being supported and I have to say AMI have turned up to every bike show I have been at since they opened bringing demos and models that main dealers felt were too precious for the masses to sit on.

More of this open day craic is very welcome.

They're interchangeable, and usually one in the same person, with a set of textiles and stories of Alps trips for their roundel donning friends, and shiny HD merchandise and beard extensions for their hog meet-ups, with stories of terrorizing grandmothers who dare to have patches on their quilts.
