I've got one.

Excellent.

Link features vid with a beginning that has echoes of that unfortunate tech-spook cyclist.

I'd use more extra internal packing/protection than he does - in fact I thought that was central to its design concept.

Pipe lagging, bubble wrap, cardboard etc

Memorable bits included the peat bogs ( really) and the lovely Irish hospitality and food. Weather was the only compromise, England had a heat wave whilst we were there, but it didn't get to the West coast of Ireland! Ps scenery was a 10/10

Some where there's a links to our photos, https://www.flickr.com/photos/7745330@N ... 542048528/
I was chief photographer on this trip as I'm no mechanic and we stayed at b&bs so no cooking was required and one of my friends likes the map reader role. I always get nagged for holding things up because I dart off for photos but they appreciate it when we get home and have a record of our travels. Well, that's my theory anyway.

I looked at the photos. I'm into photography too and live in Ireland and have toured all those areas.
Superb stuff.

You know I've Irish friends with whom I've toured abroad on numerous occasions and they refuse to tour in their own country!
