Thread: Saturday Offroad Pics

  1. #33
    The track ahead was washed out in places which entailed much precarious riding and often manhandling.
    Killian goes first here.


    near the 'deserted village'


    Then one by one we passed through this section


    It was just here where discovered the distinct disadvantage of H&B crash bars, their extra width tipped me off and as I fell, waiting for my bike to come down on top of me when it didn't I looked up to see 3 burly guys holding it up...thanks lads I owe you one, that would have been painful


    Proper GSing


    No complaints about it being too hard on this ride out


    All hands on deck






    Whenever it was tricky there was always someone to help.





    Daihi drops off the track and into the stream....he says it was intentional


    It worked though
    You can see the deserted village in the background, Owen had a bit of an off near there when he went over the handlebars, luckily just a dented tank and broken indicator...top man


    just picking it up from the parking place


    And so back to the road for lunch, but the fun didn't stop there, here Flash looks unconcerned as the first of three 1200s hit the deck on the lawn whilst parked

    On top of the hill....but not over it

    At the end of the day came the Minaun challenge

    Last year Fanum and I tried it without success and it's been bugging me ever since

    So you can imagine the exilaration of making it to the top this time

    Orla was laughing so much she dropped her dakar at the top, and I know both Forry and myself were shouting inside our helmets when we cleared the bog with a big rooster and bounced over the rocks to the summit....YEEHAA!!


    On the approach to the top and past the most difficult section, Owens flip front helmet dropped and the chinbar was in front of his eyes he bounced off a rock fuming at his helmet


    But NOTHING was going to stop him reaching the top now


    GSing at it's very best


    we were all buzzing with excitment and savoured the moment up there with our bikes.


    btw I've realised I was spelling Daithi wrong and apologise if I got any other names wrong
    I know Forry has some fantastic photos which I'm looking forward to

    The views from the top were fantastic and getting to the top really was the icing on the cake for a fabulous day.
    Thank you all for your company

    Tim, they are brilliant photos, my better half walked passed me as I was
    looking at them and stopped to ask why was I grinning so much. Since I
    wasn't in Achil at all I said I'd just read a funny email.

    What we did was a hell of a lot of fun but most of the reason it was so great
    was the group of lunatics that were there. Again thanks for posting these pics.
    BTW, my detour into the stream might not have been as intentional as I implied.

    Feckin great fun though, roll on the Cambrian.

    Dakar Gal

    Wizards turn and after a shakey start he gained if confidence not sure if he's quiet in control yet though



    Then it was Tim turn.



    Tim jumps onto his bike and heads straight for Dailthi and comes off.
    I rubbed my hands together with glee i'd caught the whole thing on video
    But somehow the files corrupt and i can't upload it
    So here's Tim in action just afterwards even this clips not perfect i think Tims done a deal with the devil



    Daithi was next what you can't see is everyone behind getting sprayed in mud



    Then we headed off towards the deserted village.
    Killian leading the way .



    Many hands make light work



    More soon

    No Tim, I told you, I wasn't there ! Ask my wife, she'll tell you.
    I was laying blocks in Kilkee.

    Well done lads for the photos and vids, Forry's laughter at me being coated
    in mud at the stream crossing was particularly funny.

    After lunch and a spot of 1200 dropping we headed back to the Hotel to meet up with the road run for the Minaun challenge.I've waited a year for this had to leave early last year and never got a chance to try.

    Even Looking up the Minaun's daunting there's no track to follow it's every man or woman for themselves



    Off shoots Will and Kyle closly followed by Daithi then Orla.

    Here comes Orla just a little bit further I've never seen anyone as Happy in my life as Orla reaching the top we were all and jumping about laughing hysterically.

    Respect






    Tim was just as Happy too it's bugged him for a year



    Eoin looking a tad angry thought the helmet was gona get it



    King of the Hill



    Minaun challenge victors





    Here's a few photos from the top absolutely stunning



















    Well that's the end don't now how to sum it up
    I've had some excellent trail rides this year at various events but this one comes out on top all because of you .


    Eoin
    Daithi
    Tim
    Tony
    JK
    Richie
    Killian
    Aiden
    Mark
    Matt
    Orla
    Will
    Kyle
    Oh and Me



    THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES

    Excellent stuff
    Some of it looks more like trials bike territory than GS

    Stunning photos and hilarious videos Forry, I had already raided your Smugmug account for the one of me silhouetted near the top for my new screen saver

    This day almost took GS offroading to a new level for me, yes it may be easier on a pogo but that's not the point, not everyone wants easy.

    And what a great thread with so many contributions

    A great report and wonderful pics lads.

    What a thread.

    This is a stunning pic Forry. One for the top of the page if ever I saw it.

    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.

    Great pics & vids Forry

    Shame about the one of Tim

    The pressure's certainly on Daithi to improve on that for next year
    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.
