I thought we had corner steadies but we don’t. It rocks quite a bit when we’re moving around inside. I’ll just have to go slow and steady and then quick when Mrs binman says so!! lol

😂  Nice! My wife just called her RV the shaggin wagon! 😂 I just learned from experience that even with the leveling jacks down it still rocks! tongue Ireland looks like it would be fun on a road trip! How long does it take to get from 1 side of the island to the other?

A couple of examples below sticking to the major roads mainly. If you get into the more rural areas there’s grass growing up the middle of the lesser used roads so the going gets much slower. It’s a great place, very laid back.
I was in a rural bar on holiday one year and asked the barmaid what time they shut. She said ‘Whatever time the Gards show up!’ (Gards=Garda Síochána= Irish Police).
Another holiday an exhaust bracket broke on my car so I called into the local hardware store/pub and asked for lock wire for a temporary repair. They didn’t have any but everyone in the pub half of the building had a discussion and said if I called to the shed half a mile down the road the fella would have some. They called ahead and when we arrived at what was just a garden shed (not his business or anything)he had a length of wire that we pinned the exhaust with. He wouldn’t take any money so we wished each other luck and we went on our way.
I love rural Ireland and a few pints in a rural pub is a thing of beauty. Good beer and friendly people. Always fun. Just avoid the ‘manufactured’ Irish bars. (Anything with an old bike on the wall can f•ck right off!) lol

Im in this hobby for the nostalgia.  Most of my bikes are ongoing projects.
My day-to-day riding consists of commuting, bar-hopping and mountain biking.
