PostSubject: Hiya from Ireland   Fri Sep 23, 2016 5:08 pm

Just a quick intro, I have recently bought a 2012 SW with less than 2k on the clock. Really pleased.
Retired a couple of years now but I have been motorcycling for over 40 years. Recently sold a GS1200 but still have an SV1000 in the garage but it seems to be the SW that gets to go out and play most days.
I have a full workshop, lathe mill welding etc so always making things to help make the bikes better.
I have already added a number of things to the bike including a home brew satnav mount for a Garmin 550, heated grips, a second Aux socket for heated vest etc, a Laminar lip (really excellent addition) and a control relay for the heated grips and satnav.

Looking forward to being an active member of the forum.

Hi Mr Blobby and welcome to the forum.
Sounds like you bring a lot of practical experience with you which is always nice to see.
I use a laminar lip too. As you say, a great addition.
Enjoy the bike and stay safe.

Hello Mr Blobby,

I live just across the water to the East of you in Morecambe. Many, many years ago, Mr Blobby used to be a regular attraction in Morecambe until he fell out with the local council due to their stodginess.

I'm a "hands-on" sort of a rider too, but I don't have much in the way of workshop facilities.

I've always fancied a tour of Ireland, so it may happen one day. If you're ever over here, give me a shout.

Hi All

Thanks for your best wishes, much appreciated.
If anyone wants to tour Ireland I might be able to help as I owned a motorcycle touring company a few years ago specialising in Ireland tours.
Great roads, stunning scenery, nice people and cracking Guinness. What's not to like Laughing Laughing Laughing

It's nice to see a representative of Eire. I used to belong to the Steve Saunders forum back when it was based there. I envy your shop equipment, I sold most of mine recently didn't use them much lately but now sure wish I'd hung on to my welding gear and lathe.
