OP Storm 1. Northern Ireland 20th to 22nd July 2018

Post by fabiostar » Sat Nov 04, 2017 10:58 am

ok boys after failing the last time due to family stuff this year its a goer. looking at the other dates from years gone by iv squeezed this date in without it clashed with other OPs or any big race meets that i can find :D .

The plan... to be held on the third weekend in July 2018..the weekend of 20 to 22nd.

location will be close to (20 mile ish) the belfast area, iv a few sites to visit yet just to confirm campsies/B&Bs and spots to eat in/drink in.. iv done a few dummy runs for a lot of the route, the roads will be interesting to say the least :D but will be virgin roads to you guys.. we dont suffer speed traps over here so we will stay away from the few sites we have..

if anybody wants to hop over earlier/stay later no problems im sure i can hide a few of you in my cave :eek2 .

we have a new storm group here on facecake so iv interest from a few boys here already..

you will have a good time lads and any bike problems we are never to far away from somebodies gaff over here to sort it..

get your names down lads...

Yup I'm in....
Sweet.

What are you thinking accommodation? Camping?
Wales in the bunk house was great as no tent to carry, but I'm cool either way? Tarp slung over bike will do!

Right time to look at boats. Not bothered if it's from up here or Liverpool to be honest.
Don't hassle me
I'll get there at some time

Boat options are easy either over from Scotland to Belfast or Larne or for anybody further south Liverpool/Belfast, Wales/Dublin that leaves you about 100 miles up to Belfast so handy andy..

just checking out camping/B&B at the min but plan be is il get the folding camper set up and all you will need is a blowup bed and we can all bunk in it..

no not blowup women i said BED lol

Oh, go on then.
But you'll have to buy me a birthday half on the Friday.
It's not falling off, it's an upgrade opportunity.
