3 day blast

Post by Stormin » Thu Sep 12, 2013 8:26 pm

Headed off on Tues with 3 mates to do a quick 700 mile blast around a couple of the scenic parts of Ireland. Weather on the first day was perfect DRY! We left my house in Co Antrim with the destination of Rathdrum in Co Wicklow,240 miles of glorious back roads where i found the SMT is without equal,even giving away 30hp to a Multistrada! Went up through the famous Wicklow Gap where the scenery is breathtaking. Arrived in Rathdrum and stayed that night in Jacob's Wells which if any of you are in that area give them a shout.Absolutely brilliant B&B with great food and one of the best pints of Guinness anywhere.
Wed morn still dry and we steered west towards Clifden in Connamarra,again staying away from main roads,195 miles of mainly switchbacks,whoops and changes of road surface that the SMT loves.However as we cicumnavigated Galway the rain started and it stayed like that right to Clifden and
that way the rest of the trip right until I arrived home Thurs evening after another 260 miles of slipping and sliding up the West coast.
The bike was amazing as was the PR3's and it makes me wonder why KTM are deleting the SMT as IMO it is one of the best real world bikes you can buy,at the minute!<

Sorry no photos of Connamarra,too bloody wet so we just bombed home
