    You're very welcome dirty-t. We don't get as many event virgins as we used to so the initiations have been less dramatic than they used to be

    Sounds like fun. Bring it.
    It's an annual visit to a beautiful spot in the west of Ireland. Good food, maybe some alcohol & hopefully decent weather to ride some gorgeous roads. There's reports from previous years here so you can see what you're letting yourselves in for - https://www.ukgser.com/forums/forumd...59-Past-Events
    We're hoping the international travel restrictions will be eased / gone by then but who knows. Fingers crossed

    If you're looking to hire a bike while you're here both these places are not far (relatively ) from Dublin airport. LemonRock will even arrange airport pick-up

    Bit of a heads up, The petrol pump in Leenaun is out of action the last few days, they have converted that whole area into outdoor dining! I arrived in preying for PEtrol but no luck. Nearest spot is about 10k out the road past the hotel. 10 very nervous kilometers in my case!

    Fuel in Kylemore

    If it came to it we could contact Mortimers fuel station and ask them if we needed to fuel up earlier or later could they accomodate us. Himself and his son are nice people.

    Due to a variety of reasons, I have decided to postpone indefinitely my UK visit. This was not an easy decision to make, and my wife is still going to visit her mum. That all said, I do have this booking at the Port Finn for this rally. Before I cancel it, I thought I'd post up here and see if anyone would like to take it over directly? Or maybe the hotel is already running a wait list, in which case I should just go ahead and cancel it with them and let them sort it out? Any thoughts?

    Thanks. Next time...
