    Sorry to hear about your brother.
    Northern Ireland is a very welcoming place, lovely people and great roads and scenery. My wife and I spent a week there last September with two other biking couples, had a blast, enjoy.

    Yes, I'll echo the previous post. A tough task, a funeral for someone close. Condolences mate. But then I wish you a safe and enjoyable trip. :)

    Condolences. Sad news indeed. Yes must be hard. But remember we are all with you in spirit. Do try to make the best of North Ireland. I can vouch for the friendliness and beauty you will find. But at this tragic time I know it will be a task for you. Just ride safe and take it easy. Remember that God will hold the young on safe in the palm of his hand till you can be reunited again.
    Regards And condolences.
    Joe.

    No Thanks needed. I meant what I said. And have been there myself. I of course was born and breed in the Emerald Isle. So I know the locals will treat you like Family. Its a brave thing to do take in all those mile when you are not in full heart.
    Ride Safe and try to enjoy the roads and people. Mostly come back safely to us all here in the forum.
    God Bless.
    Joe

    Sorry to hear about your brother Steve. Enjoy your time in Ireland which hopefully will go a little way towards helping you come to terms with it all. Ride safe and see you at Bellingham
