    Similarly we have booked the hotel in Wales for our third year. We will be at least ten this year.

    if you are looking to do the Wild Atlantic Way (basically the the West coast) have a look at the YouTube channel of this couple who live in the next village.

    They did it in two parts and you will find 13 episodes to watch with commentaries on the hotels they stayed in.

    I don’t use websites etc as I’ve been a few times and my brother lives there.
    This time we’re staying in the North West corner of the island. Ferry to Belfast and first night at Carrickfergus. Then around the North Antrim coast and over to the West to Dungloe. Staying West the next day to Leanane. Before crossing back to Belfast for the ferry Back to Cairnryan. I use Basecamp to plot the routes (my job) another of the lads going does the hotel bookings and another of my brothers does the ferry bookings. This division of the planning/booking seems to work well. It has for the past 25 years ish anyway.
    You won’t go far wrong wherever you decide to go in Ireland. The reason Ireland is so green is because it rains, a lot. Be prepared to get a tad damp. It’s a biggish island so don’t try to do it all in one trip. Pick an area and have a look around it. The people, the pubs, the hotels and the culture is just fantastic. Enjoy your trip whichever part you decide to visit.

    Thanks @Baza I watched the MMD stuff before I did the NC500 last year and found them to be informative and amusing. I’ll get the YouTube fired up :cool:

    I booked a trip, flights and insurance for Helmut and I to do a week long tour of Gran Canaria in March https://www.canarymotorcycletours.com/home-page

    The riding looks pretty good and we could both definitely do with some warm weather and sunshine.

    Nothing exotic, erotic or particularly exciting. Just a new air compressor for the garage. The old one served me well for 17 years and cost me £65 so good value I think! :grinning: The new one is the same size tank but slightly higher CFM rating. They've gone up a bit in price too!:joy:

    20240209_101816.jpg A cordless angle grinder. Its from Hyundai Power products. I'm very impressed with their stuff, its good value for money and seems to work and last well. I have one of their petrol chainsaws too.

    After 6 months of asking and searching I finally secured an extended clutch cable & brake line - 4 ". I thought they'd be common as dirt but not so much.

    Got their 4" extensions & a set of 3" ROX Risers. Have been told by a couple of dealers the other stuff can be re-routed to gain enough slack to accommodate those. Got my fingers crossed!
