Ring of Kerry – MotoGoLoco Classics

26th August 2015 by  in MotoGoLoco Classic Motorcycle Routes

The Ring of Kerry is a beautifully picturesque circular route around the south west of Ireland. Local’s tip – ride the route Clockwise (as we’ve drawn it here), as the local tour buses all drive Anti-Clockwise.

The Ring of Beara and the Ring of Kerry

25th August 2015 by  in Motorcycle Touring & Travel, The Dex Files

Next day I made sure we had another early start, because I wanted to visit Valentia Island at the end of the Ring of Kerry. We ended up doing a slightly odd route: first we headed south, because I wanted to ride the Beara peninsula as well – it’s a lot quieter than the Ring  [Read full post…]

Getting to Ireland

24th August 2015 by  in Motorcycle Touring & Travel, The Dex Files

Well that was an excellent four days. I’d packed the bike the night before setting off, so we could make an early start – with only minimal grumbling from The Fair Lady Scully. I’d been cagey about where we were going, so from the M25 I took the M40 towards Birmingham, striking off to the  [Read full post…]

Maybe I deserve it?

I’ve just been looking at the price of the Stena Ferry to Ireland. It’s way more reasonable than I’d expected. I wonder if I can fit in some time off and whisk The Fair Lady Scully over there for a short break, before I go to Spain with the boys? After all, I’m sure she  [Read full post…]

How’s this for a compromise?

16th July 2015 by  in Motorcycle Touring & Travel, The Dex Files

I’m putting Number One Son on the insurance for my bike. No, not the GTR. The SM-T. The timing works out just right. I wasn’t sure about the tyres for the trip to Spain. So he’s going to take the SM-T for his trip to the West Coast of Ireland, as they’ll easily do his  [Read full post…]

Another thought about Ireland

2nd July 2015 by  in Motorcycle Touring & Travel, The Dex Files

Seems to me, though, that if you’re going to take the free-wheeling, see-what-happens approach to a road trip, you couldn’t do it in a better place than South-West Ireland. Whichever way you go, the roads are pleasant, the scenery is beautiful and the people are friendly. You won’t get lost – though you might lose  [Read full post…]

Makes me wish I was young again

27th June 2015 by  in Motorcycle Touring & Travel, The Dex Files

Helping Number One Son plan his trip to Ireland. I love his attitude, his optimism, his sense of freedom. He’s sorted with a Stena crossing from Fishguard, then he’s heading to Tiperary. From there it’s a short run to Killarney, where he and Little Miss Sunshine – Noddy’s daughter – will base themselves for three  [Read full post…]

Other people’s routes

26th June 2015 by  in Motorcycle Touring & Travel, The Dex Files

Normally I’m reluctant to give advice on routes, because I know that one man’s dream road can be another man’s nightmare – I love high Alpine passes with hundreds of hairpins that cling to vertiginous drops, but I know some people loathe them. One of my favourite roads in Britain is Pass of the Cattle  [Read full post…]
