When I booked mine in February on line no discounts. I got it for £70-00

 

Fishguard - Rosslare on the Stena Europe - slow boat and I've gone for the 0245hrs crossing means I can RBR around Wales on Thursday, I can catch 3 hours kip on the crossing and then make my way to the camp site, pitch my tent, have a pint and a doze. This worked very well last year and to make it better this year I plan not to drop the bike on the ferry :homer:

 

On the way back I've got the 2115 crossing booked. Last year arrived early and got on the fast cat, no upgrade cost. Not sure exactly what my return plans will be, might see about a transfer to a more northerly port.

21-15? Jeez,you better bring a big tank bag if you're staying that long.

There might not even be ferries in 21-15. Maybe we'll all be hovering about.

I should just make it, I'm going on to a raw fish diet and doing lots of yoga.

Hovering, jiving, hipping and hopping...we'll be doing the lot if the recent MG Club committee's warm-up-to-rally-season meet is anything to judge by. Social Sec. Bob's dressed smartly, as ever. Which one is hairypony?

For some reason, this shorter journey is always more expensive. I'm looking at it for Spaen Bridge and it's showing £100 to cross the wee bit of water.

Yep, thanks Gary. If I go, I think I'll go for the Larne - Troon crossing. Have you used it? Does it make much odds, compared to Cairnryan?

 

The Belfast crossing would be much handier, but it's always been expensive.

OK Baldini

I'm slightly worried about posting this in case the weather is bad and it's a washout, but really, you know that you've got to do 'the right thing'. Stop prevaricating and get your ticket booked. The Scottish trip has put me in the mood for a rip round the Beara peninsula and over the Healy Pass. You need to get that Scura in the mix.

How about a roll call? It seems that we'll be pretty well represented this year.

From what I can work out the following forum members:

 

Wambiker

Grossohv

Guzzirider and Helen on her V11

Duffo and Jim - is that Jim Forham I seem to think he's from same area?

Paul Smart

Guzzimeister

Martin Barrett - hey that's me

BelfastGuzzi

 

I know Ferguzzi won't be there as will be sunning himself in his chaps in Nevada on a Harley.

 

I assume BigJ and John O'Sullivan will also be there

 

Anyone else?

How good are the ferry operators at tying the bike down, should i take anything (rags to protect paintwork etc). i have used ferrys before but that was a while ago and the bike was on a centrestand.
