Hey all, I'm not Irish, but my wife and I, for our 20th Anniversary, spent 10 days at the beginning of September touring southern Ireland and I absolutely loved it.

I absolutely loved County Cork...and the road between Killarney and Kenmare is wicked cool.

Next year (I hope) Northern Ireland.

Yip....I had a Light Weight before...in sand(sold to a Sydney Bell...Andy and Grenville at BLRC built it up for me...it was one of thier first jobs as such)..it was excellent.....been there done that though I would`nt mind getting a Dutch Military L/W diesel just for skipping about the place....

Of course the heater is crap as per normal...it only gets used in winter here along with numerous fleeces and coats!!!
alt 1438m



Of course the obligatory hound(Pyrenean Mountain Dog of course with living here)....see Lulu(my wifes dog of course with a ridiculous name like that)at 6weeks old...its the white eyelashes that are strange to see on a dog eh??...d`oh!!






Later at 3 months....and yes she is bigger now for sure!!....



Monthly maintainance is nearly the same as an LR...well it is female of course.....

Howdy,
that is a sweet bike rack.. self made I take it?

Also, another Landie driver here........ I opted for the wimpie version (Disco III) , only took her off-road once and got bogged down to the axles! (in my bosses front garden...long story) I have a dog too, but he aint going to any Krufts shows any time soon as he's a 'pure bred mutt'!

The bike rack is factory made by a man called Dave Cooper if i remember correctly...he advertises in Trail Bike Monthly along with selling bike trailers too. Try www.davecooper.co.uk/bike_racks.htm

....When I bought it,about 5 yrs ago it was only about £49......it works well...very secure and safe...the rack base mounting stays on the tow hitch full time and you just slot the 2 wheel carriers in when you need it...after the bike is off you just put the 2 slots into the truck for safe keeping. I only had to buy 2 longer towball bolts which he supplied for an extra couple of quid. Can`t see it working with a swan neck hitch though....I`d love to buy the Disco 3 but my kids would just wreck it...you know...scrapes with bike handlebars,dents with basketballs etc...they`d even find away to break something inside it...if they can break bits in an ex army one after squaddies could`nt then theres no hope for a disco 3 lasting the pace....as for the mutt...they`re common place around here(obviously enough)...and if you want one badly enough you can even get them just given to you!!.....

Ta Corp,
I'm looking for a small (and cheap) trailer for my R1200GS. There are plenty of places in the UK that do specialist fold-away racks that seem to do the job. But I won't be going across the water anytime soon.
Could try building one myself though! Now where's me welder...

Oh... with regard to the breakability of the Disco III.... too many fiddely bits. I have managed to break one or two things myself....

I have a question for those of you in Ireland.

Hello,

I will be doing a road trip(in a cage) with the Mrs. at the end of August.

I am considering buying Garmin City Navigator Europe software for my GPS to help us navigate.

I understand the roads in Ireland are rather straightforward in going from town to town. But if this software keeps us from fighting about where or it it helps us find a place to stay it will probably be worth the money.

We try and get to Europe every other year or so and the software has use beyond this trip.

So, would you care to give me your opinion: Is my money better spent on navigation software or beer?

TIA.

Chris
