    Off-Road @ Tipperary

    There will be an off-road run again this year, it will be do-able using Tourances on a GS and while
    it will have a few technical bits it will all be very manageable, even the "Special Tests". The run will be
    led by Mcivor (Brendan Power) and will start relatively early to avoid bumping into walkers. There
    will be a stop for a bite to eat at "Ballyglass Hotel" which will be followed by more fun and games
    on the big bikes. If you're interested put up a post so we'll have an idea of the numbers.
    Again, to reiterate, this will be a very manageable run, and lots of fun.

    If yer thinking of doing this run please reply to this thread, so we'll have an idea of numbers coming.

    Without any bother whatsoever, it's all fairly handy stuff and is aimed at the big yokes.

    This years run will be very manageable.

    Gary, last years run was a doddle, I don't think anybody fell off their bikes while moving and we all made it back....eventually.

    This year it promises to be even better fun....the "special test" will make for brilliant photos as will the prize giving ceremony.

    I agree.. I was on failry worn Tourance EXP's and found it fairly easy going. The wet grass early on was slippy but not too tricky. The rest was very enjoyable. I only heard one person's thoughts that it was a bit tough and he was the only person I remember falling.
