    Off road run

    Some recces have been done for an off road/boreen run. It will be do-able on Tourances with care. The run will be led by Erneman on his 1200GS. More details after the final recce this weekend.

    No ploblems Mark.No bunks available on the ferry so spent the night on a seat in the bar listening to a bazillion noisy boozing Liverpool fans. ....They won apparently. When I saw your post thought you were going to be tailending me round Fermanagh/Donegal.

    if you are going on the off road run meet at palm bush filling station at 9.15am and leaving at 9.30 sharp.[if you are late you can catch the road ride from the same place at 10.00am] when you leave lough erne hotel turn right following signs for belleek pettigo,donegal. filling station is 3 miles out that road on right.you can do it on road tyres no problem.there is only about 8 miles of it that is very slippy but you will have a soft landing.bring waterproof boots or wet feet.most of the trails are roff,so make sure your bike is tight or bring a tool kit.

    Sounds great. I'd say you'll have more than a few takers for that run Erneman
    Just 'cos you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you !

    Remember, experience only means that you screw-up less often.

    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.

    There is a morning loop, mossy lane, fire roads,boreen, b roads, beach, returning to Belleek for lunch which may suit you then Boreen, fire road, a mountain and a few small sheoughs to negotiate. Finish time will have to be flexible depending on numbers, skill level, smoke breaks, shitetalk and photo opportunities. No fords that I am aware of but I was only on the first recce. You wouldn't know what that Erneman has up his sleeve. Hope you're bringing your camera...

    GPS route...Brian will have to answer that one. He was using one on the recce ok

    Hope this helps

    sorry no gps route. i was using a road book and maps.go out the donegal rd out of pettigo about 5-10 miles until you see a lake down below the rd on right with a picnic bench we are using the trail across the rd from it. we should pass there about 10.30 although we are not stopping here. on the recce run sunday there was a lot of rain and lots of foot deep puddles so it depends on the weather. its about 1/2 on rd 1/2 off rd if all goes to plan but we can cut out some trails if the going is to slow as terry wants everyone to do the dowra express
