I'm wondering... Can I still change into jeans/normal shoes after they strap my bike down on the ferry (Stena->Holyhead)? I'd like to leave the motorcycle pants & boots in my top box. Is that feasible? ...or should I just change in a bush before I enter the ferry? :)

Looking for a new Lid, tried on the Shoei Neotec 2 at the bike show and decided this is the one for me, visor shop is 722, and megabikes is 699, I thought the visor shop was going to be cheaper, even dropped them an email to see what would be the best price but got the same reply so not worth the trip up. I thought Bike gear was VAT free in the UK or is this an old wife's tale ?

May 02, 2019 - 9:42 PM - by armstrongracer
I'm changing jobs next week which requires a long commute across the city so out comes the bike... Did a dry run today & nearly choked to death. I'm on the rebound from bad lung infection & my airways are really sensitive to dust. I used to have a Respiro Bandit Scarf which was brilliant, it stops strap rash too. So, does anyone know where I can buy one in Dublin sharpish (tomorrow) Cheers.

» Triumph Tiger Explorer very nice but I have to say goodbye
May 02, 2019 - 3:49 PM - by Sakas
Hi all,

Last year I bought a 2013 Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200 and I immediately loved it, with its power, precise handling, sublime three-cylinder power delivery and exhaust sound (pure music to me).

During the first 10 months I just piled up miles Ė I bought this bike with the intention of riding it until the wheels fell off, I loved getting on the bike every day and I and couldn't imagine owning anything else.

The beginning of the endÖ.. All that joy turned to misery, itís a major disappointment when the engine went out Ė the bike it's currently in the shop for repairs as I write.

Before buying this bike I did an extensive research and I came across good feedback. A couple of weeks ago -when this disaster occurred- I went... [Read More]

» RSA RTE Radio
May 02, 2019 - 9:10 AM - by faz1
Was listening to an interview with RSA on morning Ireland this morning in the run up to May week end. Whilst some of their early interview points may have a certain validity, I was shocked to hear them portray bikers as a shower if beer swilling speed merchants. Nothing at all really about raising the awareness of other road users towards m/c's and cyclists and the jidsy brigade. Interview was very one sided in it's content and message and got worse as the lady got more comfortable bashing the bikers. I was quite frankly shocked as I don't know any biker in this day and age that would chance taking a drink and get on the bike.

Apr 30, 2019 - 4:22 PM - by Fledermaus
Imported a new bike from NI through a southern dealer, who will be taking care of the paperwork, VRT etc., but I'm told that this is backlogged at the moment, and might take a week or more to get an Irish reg plate. The bike is otherwise ready to go.
Am I OK to ride the bike on the UK Reg, untaxed as I can't do until its Irish registration is sorted?

Whatever happened to that? Can't even remember the name if it was it bikesafe?

Remember the traffic core bike lads woukd take a group out and give you a few pointers on your riding.

Bad form they stopped that. Not even a garda presence at the bike show this year. I mean they got lovely new R1200RT-Ps that people would only love to come over and have a chat with.

The RSA chap at the show was a gent and really loved his bikes, loved showing off his flash new bike too, Stephen his name was. Said they were getting a fleet BMW F850gs in for their instructors to test people on.

There is always on up the north or over in the English bike shows.

Some thing the RSA and Garda should get up and running again even if it cost €40... [Read More]

Sad that it's come to this but the same as here in Dublin the law has failed us all when it comes to bike theft. This is what happens when the justice system backs the scumbag over the hard working tax payer.

» NHS to suspend use of Blood Bike service
Apr 25, 2019 - 2:13 PM - by Southern Rider
NHS announced it will stop using Blood Bike service out of hours due to the system being voluntary and concern over service levels and ramifications of such a voluntary service failing to provide levels required. I imagine they mean cases where blood is required and not delivered due to breakdowns/lack of operator etc.

They will now engage a professional service provider, who can be held responsible etc.

Wonder will the HSE be watching this.

I got done for speeding yesterday.

Do I wait until my insurance renewal in August to notify Carole Nash or do I need to let them know once I've received the fine in the post? The 3 points are my first in over 35 years driving and riding and I'm annoyed with myself, how will they impact my insurance premiums?

Any recommendations for reflective tape/vinyl or wrap in sliver. The high grade M3 that's used on the back of cages or ambulances.

Also recommend someone to fit it.

I want it in silver so it can't be seen during the day and it doesnt make it look like I'm trying to make the bike look an emergency vehicle.

Because we all know of the fools riding around trying to make themself and their bikes look like garda bikes.

I'm looking for stealthy during the day and very hi-viz at night/dawn/dusk.
