Only downside to this trip was travelling from Limerick to Dublin for 6.30am flight.

Left my house @ 2am (no sleep)

By 12pm walking around the show my legs were like jelly & I felt like I had sandpaper behind my eyelids.

Stayed overnight at my brothers house & after a few beers I was in bed by 11pm. Didn't count many sheep that night.

This Book the Ibis well in advance for 40 quid on Friday night and enjoy the day.
Had a great time, even got to have a relaxing chat and cuppa with Neil Hodgson and Niall Mackenzie, doesn't get much better that this.

New Panigale V4 is fab as expected. Had never been before but it was well worth it. Got me a Garmin Yoke at a great price and some other bits n bobs. They had the full Oxford range of parts there as well so I picked up some bling.

Stayed in the IBIS and it was perfect. All in all would recommend to all.
Sorry to be off topic - but - do you still have the GS 911 diagnostic tool for sale Boyd ?
