    There are two opinions of the GS. There are those who have ridden one who think its fantastic and there are those who haven't who know its crap.

    As the numbers on this run are very limited I would like to keep them open to folks who are attending the whole weekend, but I will start a reserve list for those coming up for just the Saturday who would like to go.
    I will just be down for the Saturday Aidan-if i can't get on this run i hope to join you on the road run

    Anyone accompanying me on this rideout might be interested to watch a programme on BBC NI on Monday 2nd March at 21.00 called 'Tailwind' which is a documentary about military aviation in N Ireland during WW2 and features interviews with RAF personnel who served here. Might be useful for a little background on the run-out as I believe Fermanagh and the Donegal Corridor features in the prog

    Folks, I am not sure I will be attending the Kesh trip on my bike. 3 weeks before it, I am having my right wrist operated on for Carpal tunnel syndrome... I know three others who had it done, one was incapacitated for 3 weeks, one for three months and the other for five months

    This wee rideout was something I was definately looking forward to, but I dont know if I will be able to ride my bike in that timeframe.

    I will still be at Kesh, either on the bike or in the car. I am thinking it might be a bit much too try to tag along in a tin box....... suggestions welcome Arthur.
    If your wife wants to learn to ride a bike...... Don't stand in her way!

    After all that, I haven't seen the prog yet, baby-sitting duties recorded it tho' watch it tomorrow.

    Stevie, dunno about the tin box yet, still to do the final recce on the run and ISTR that there were some mucky lanes involved. Possibly modify this, will keep you informed
