    You'll never guess who I saw today.....

    In the car today between Killeagh and Youghal when I spotted a bike coming towards me and even from a distance it looked familiar as it passed it realised it was The Celt. The chinbar on his helmet was up and it was definitely him.
    I know he hasn't posted in here in a long time but has anyone had any contact with him?

    Joe helped Sue (Gracie on here) and me with lots of info with our overland trip to Iran and Pakistan and we owe him much more than a mere pint

    Then he dropped off the radar ...

    Would love to buy him a bier or ten ... lovely fella

    A great fella altogether the Joe fella. He is missed in these parts.
    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.

    So he is still around !
    Last time I spoke to Joe he was planning another big trip & then he disappeared off the face of the planet
    Ya shoulda turned around & chased him down

    Ehh, no he wasn't. And no he didn't
    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.
