    Were you in a char-a-banc or a rickshaw ?

    Saw a good few bikes out today. But the roads are a bit greasy around where I live - traction control kicking in on the car without me acting the maggot. Puts me off at the mo tbh.

    Hope you had a good spin Max.

    Bit of rain overnight will wash away most of the cow****e that's been building up on the roads here so might make a spin the first thing in 2017!

    Have a safe year all.
    Edit: Had a blast around south Limerick this morning. Perfect day for it.

    Cracking day today for the bike....had a good blast over to a relative today. Lovely crisp day and no too much traffic.....ideal.

    Had the same deal in the car couple days back, TC kicked in pulling out onto a major road even when taking it handy. The spot of rain yesterday sorted that though, cracker today.

    Yes was like one big oil spill for miles around home the last few weeks. - agricultural/HGV traffic the cause with no rain to wash it off. Alll grand now. Just need to get better winter gloves. Very Frigid Digits on the run today.

    It was a grand few days with just one bad weather front crossing over on Saturday afternoon/night depending where you were in the country. Did Limerick - Belmullet return..... we needed to get some saddle time in and bed down some kit.

    PS the N59 Ballina to Belmullet is a nice biking road IMO, especially section from Belacorrick to Belmullet. The road R312 from Belacorrick down to Castlebar is tough work, you just gotta take it handy on that one.

    2 calipers off the beast have parts need a new head for myself with this bird flu I have. No biking for me for about 5 weeks now ffs between one thing and another.

    I was, but the weather was sheeite here in Galway. Constant light drizzle, sheeite and muck on the roads too but hey I got to have a spin other than a commute! I also found some new fishing spots. Happy enough with that!

    I was coaching at a Judo competition today so missed it, but it [the weather] must have got to me because I'd a nap after and was dreaming I was stunting :/

    The likes of Alcohol Action Ireland won't be happy until we all have ration cards. Maybe not even then.

    Dammit, you reminded me of Aidan Lynam with the 'Ted'.. And then I flew back to see if I'd made a typo :p

    My stunting is stunning :D

    I did my first proper spin of the year and went up to Dundalk for the weekend . Took the R132 all the way up, great day for it and apart from slightly damp roads it was a grand spin.
