    Thumbs up Joes wee run oot ... thanks

    Hi Joe and all,

    First let me say a big thanks and how much I enjoyed meeting everyone again. And it was nice to put a few new faces to our southern colleagues avatars.

    We eventually found Naul and the wee cafe, and yes they make an excellent cappo. (Forgot to thank you Dan )



    The wee coffee shop in the background.



    Nice Adventure



    When we left the coffee house Joe went and got the key to his house to show us round







    This is Joe lettin us all in.



    Apparently Joes folks go back a long way.



    On a serious note though thanks Joe for lettin us have a look around.



    This is one of the burial chambers, @ 2500 BC



    This is Oatsey haunting the chamber Missed his calling



    Joe's most beautiful assistant ... on the left off course



    The man himself




    Some shots of the lunch stop at Monaghan, excellent food and ambience.







    Didn't count but there looked to be about 25 - 30 GSs



    Joe had the lunch well sorted, check the ambience of this



    At the 'top table' was the new celebrity moderator, 'Tuned In' with spectacles centre



    Then there were tables for the mere mortals



    And look who's there its .... Civil and his beautiful assistant also



    Well folks thats it.

    Hope you'll forgive me Joe for going ahead and posting my pics.

    It was a truly great day out in great company. Doesn't come much better than that.

    Thanks Joe and thanks all

    Lads and Ladies what can I say, thanks very much from Danielle and myself. What a fantastic day!! Great roads, great weather, great company and delicious food. Special thanks to Aidan, The Big Fella, Mzokk for leading the ride out and Dibbles for organising the venue for lunch. It was great to see you'se all, and put names to faces that I hadn't seen before. Many thanks, looking forward to the next one. Great pics Alte Wolf.

    P.S Did anybody notice Civil's car boot sale at the corner, I think he was trying to shift merchanise. The cheeky wee monkey that he is.

    he needs money to get a new lid after his wee accident at sion mills


    apparently someone from the south put a hit out on him..... no names as yet but he has his suspicions

    the hitman was using a car , but he failed to hit him with it but did get the helmet

    Civils sixth sense for losing money sprang into action and he pulled the bike out of the way quicker than he would take a deposit for a set of panniers leaving the helmet to take the full force of the attack

    Joes wee ride oot

    Many superlatives have already been used and I suspect there will be many more. What a brilliant day to be a biker in great company, brilliant fun riding new roads with a great lead man (thanks Marcus) and then to put faces to names. To those I met ........it was great craic..........to those I didn't ...hopefully next time

    Alte Wolf ...great pics and so quick ......just summed up a great outing.

    Many thanks Joe. and to all involved whom I may have forgotten to name personally....make the next one soon..

    What a day!

    Celt appreciation society

    Well done Joe for organising a great day out.

    Here are a few of the pics I took.................

    From left to right, Dibbles (Maurice), Sugarcube (Errol), Leprechaun (Frank), Barry Craig, The Civil One (Phil) and finally Raindancer (I think....sorry if I'm wrong)


    Left to right again.......... The Celt (Joe), Oatsey (Raymond), The Big Fella (Tom) and Danielle.


    Three GSers enjoy a wee sit down in the sun. The red brick building in the background is the Westenra Hotel where we had lunch.


    After the grub seven of us on six bikes headed off into County Cavan for a wee run. We went via Clones, Cavan and Cootehill to Shercock where we stopped at Lough Sillan. There were folks water-skiing and wind surfing on the lake, a great day for those more energetic than ourselves.

    From L to R..........Joe and Danielles 1100, The Big Fellas GSA, Sugarcubes 1200, my 1150 and Barry Craigs lovely 1100. Oatseys blue and white 1150 is not in shot.


    From the lough we went on to Carrickmacross where we bade farewell to the Big Fella and Joe & Danielle. Oatsey, Sugarcube, Barry and myself then made our way home by Cullaville, Crossmaglen, Camlough and Newry on great roads. Mind the grass Oatsey

    As has been said by others, a great fun day out, mighty craic and would you believe...........no drum banging or stone throwing.

    Thanks all, lets do it again real soon.

    Aidan
    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.

    from a lone Dublin GSer ...

    Cheers Joe again for putting this together and for everyone else involved in an absoutely brilliant run in the sub - I missed getting the names of most of the places we went through as I was working on keeping between the hedges and off the gravel! To Klinger, Big Fella, Oatsy, Alte, Jockster, Raindancer and everyone else I met (whose names I can't remember), great to meet you and look forward to the next one. Top crew all round.

    Apologies for having to dash off from Monaghan - my other half is suffering as a result of a Land Cruiser using her little (2.8) VW Golf for brakes. Hopefully next time she'll be able to join in and we'll both be able to stay around a bit longer.

    Thanks again

    Jonny

    Thanks Joe ( & the long suffering Danielle ) for organising a great day out.

    It was great meeting you all & look forward to doing it again sometime.

    Only regret is not being able to partake of the post lunch spin but with it being Fathers Day & my wedding anniversary I felt it unwise to overdo it

    And we proved the begrudgers wrong - the paddys CAN organise a ride-out & people WILL turn up

    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.
