A great event is taking place this weekend in Glenmalure, Co.Wicklow, Friday 26th to Sunday 28th August 2016. Adventure Motorcycles Ireland & Overlanders, together with Touratech Ireland are hosting a weekend with local ride outs of varying difficulties & durations, evening presentations from renowned traveller(s) (Nick Sanders); free rider assessment by a local training school; weekend photo rally competitions; trade stands and Touratech Ireland equipment; and, bikes to try out. It started this morning (Friday) and goes on all weekend. Herself and I have already taken the Yamaha Super Tenere and the Honda Africa Twin out on the roads this morning, and they are both fantastic bikes.
We were warmly greeted by Derek, David and Gary from AMI & Overlanders, Gorey, and they offered us lots of helpful tips and information on both bikes that we tested. The weather is set to stay sunny and warm and the craic will be mighty. Food and drink at the Glenmalure Lodge, and lots more to enjoy, so get down to this great event. A fantastic setting with super views of the Wicklow hills and challenging routes to try out. No doubt there will be some great tales of adventures, both on and off the road.
