Ireland Bike Festival

Last week, the Ireland Bike Festival took place in Killarney, in Ireland.

As I was in Thailand for my brother’s wedding, sadly I couldn’t attend the festival, but my red custom bike did!

The bike happened to be in Ireland back with Waterford Harley-Davidson where it was built to have some minor work carried out on it. Lenny, the Dealer Principal telephoned me and asked if I would like my bike entered into the custom show at the festival and I agreed.

I am very glad I did agree because it won 3 awards - Best in Show, the People’s Choice award and Best Radical Custom!




















How cool is that!

Thanks Lenny, for firstly building such a great bike and also for entering it in the festival.

I found this video on YouTube from the festival - it is pretty good.... thanks to Altezzaeve for making and posting the video....

Well done Gary - that's one heck of a beautiful bike you have.

Congratulation, this bike alone should be reason enough to come back home after some month in the US :)

Oz - Thanks. We took a lot of time over the design and building of the bike, to get it just right. I think it was worth it and the shop are still very proud of what they achieved.

Bob - yep, looking forward to the tour a great deal now. Delivering the bike today sort of sealed the trip in my mind, so it is getting real now.
