    Fully Loaded Bike Tour of Ireland

    Hi all you Guys
    I just thought I would pop on the forum and let you know that I will be starting me FLBT of Ireland on Thu 17th May
    and going to tour the whole of Ireland some 2500 miles and looking forward to the spin,
    and also like to take this opportunity to thank all for the advice a while back
    I haven't been on the forum for a while, now working hard and trainning a little
    I will catch you all when I return home
    kind regards

    Well well Ant, have a wonderful time with the other old geezer ;-)
    I will practice my anti rain dancing so that in 2 weeks or so, it will hopefully have an effect.
    Cheers and have a great time.

    Antrim to a Ferry to Scotland.
