    How'd the gig go last night, man?
    I had a blast, dude!
    Turned out to be only Trucker Diablo and ourselves, and that worked out great.
    Average turn-out for the Limelight. Brian the soundman knows our sound well these days, and the sound on and off stage was bang on!
    Bassist bust his low C after the second song, but had a new one on to finish the next song without any breaks. Almost looked like we knew what we were doing
    Great warm up for headlining the Ma Nelsons gig.

    Share some of your favorite "Irish" sayings with us. Also, share some of your favorite Irish foods or meals. We have a pretty decent Irish Pub here in Tulsa and they serve some well known Irish dishes, but I know they are nowhere close to being as good as the real stuff.

    Also, if I were to visit Ireland, where should I start and where should I end? What are the top 3 or 4 "must see" type places. My wife is adopted and recently found out that her birth mothers side of the family is predominately Irish, so she'd like to learn more about that and visit Ireland one day.

    I always wished I'd had a little Irish in me.....I guess my wife will have to live with having a bit of me in her little Irish!

    Sorry man, pretty late to the Party. I was in Duisburg, Holland and Brussels in the same day LOL
    Anyways, what makes your Kawa so cool for you. What exactly do you like about that bike?
    Hope your travel was hastle free dude!


    I spend at least 2 1/2 hours a day in the saddle Mon - Friday all year round , so you get to know a machine very well.
    Having moved from the Honda 600, which I rode for 8 years, then briefly on a GSXR1000, I had thought that I could tame The ZX10 within a few months. I've had the ZX10 now for 2 years and it took at least a year to be relaxed in it's company, it really is that much of a beast!
    Being of small stature, I had been waiting patiently for 1000cc machines to be made small enough for me to feel confident chucking them around.
    The ZX10 looks like someone took a large machine and put it through a car compactor before spraying it black,- it looks and feels like a solid cube of metal, with every space within the frame stuffed to the max with well engineered mechanics, yet at first glance might still look like a 600 sized bike.
    This machine is the Kawasaki flagship, the one they put the most development into of all their products, to compete in a very competitive market. Everything is so well engineered from the best materials, and so far shows no signs of corrosion whatsoever, even though it has been through 2 salted-road winters.

    Now the best part! It's a nice feeling knowing that you are the fastest vehicle on the road. Specs suggest 0 - 60 mph in 2.4 seconds, but in the real world it's more like 2.9 or so. Top speed stops reading at 189 mph, although it does nudge past that to mid 190s in the right conditions, standard gearing, you just can't see it on the clocks. I've only had it to 170 so far.
    Power delivery is totally linear, so it will potter along at slow speed safely, but the injection is so well mapped that aggressive throttle use shows warp speed acceleration without the need to wheelie - I think I keep the front down by having all of my weight over the front due to my small stature reaching for the bars.
    Slipper clutch and ohlins steering damper as standard, as well as titanium downpipes. Black nitride upside forks and wave disc radial brakes - all as standard.
    The race geometry is so good that it coasts tight corners still fairly upright where the Honda would have been to the tyre wall at the same speed.

    This being Northern Ireland, there is no grief about using loud pipes, and I run a set of Tubetech GP pipes which love to spit flames out the back on the over-run at about 8000rpm (handy for making tail-gating cars back off a bit!)

    Overall, this machine just feels substantial. It rides like it's on tram lines and has a larger fairing than the 2010 model, so gives me more protection from the elements than skinny current designs.
    But most importantly, this thing makes me smile every single day

    Oh man, It is a lovely bike indeed. You should visit North Germany for a "proper limit tests" heheh. Funny that even the black bike has some green somewhere
    BTW, you posted that you paint custom jobs on bikes. What about helmets?

    What place would you describe as "paradise" for you.
    I certainly haven't found it yet anywhere, probably because if it's worth having, someone has already taken it!
    I'm a sucker for a warm climate,- shallow clear coastal waters and stress free existence.
    If I could survive on coconuts alone, I would retire tomorrow to a deserted island in Indonesia somewhere, I don't even think I would miss any modern technology which is really only a distraction anyway from the stresses of modern living.
    Wherever it was though, I would most definately need the company of at least one cute nymphette, preferably one for each day of the week, and also some male company to shoot the breeze with (otherwise I would be having conversations with the waves in a very short space of time.)
    But as they say, variety is the spice of life, so seasonal changes might be good for the soul, and without a little hardship, it can be difficult to appreciate the good times.
    Until I find a better climate with a stable economy and relaxed pace of life for me to chill and sculpt and get a suntan in the nip, I will be quite happy in my secluded retreat here in rolling countryside, appreciating nature in all its' finest.





    Would you like to learn to fly an ultralight? Would you enjoy 3-4 hour flights around your shores?
    I certainly would, and I don't even think my fear of heights would get in the way. I've nearly beaten that fear anyway, the next big milesone is a parachute drop sometime in the new year.
    Quite a few people over here fly around in ultralights, it might even be a way to travel to work in x-tra cold weather!

    What about helmets?
    I have painted a few helmets in the past, but it is fiddly enough, and a lot of modern injection-mold type lids do not take too well to the solvents involved. Fibreglass shell is ok, but I am always wary as to damaging the integrity of a helmet which might then not be as protective in a spill.

    It would have to be a dragon maid, or no deal. Certainly no quarter asked, nor given.

    A) asleep and dreaming
    could do or have anything you wanted just by wanting it
    money's no object and please dont say Shania Twain
    There was a feeling I used to experience whilst dreaming when I was a lot younger. Very hard to define, but almost felt like being in the womb, with total tranquility and universal understanding. The world and everything in it made sense. There was no intrepidation, mis-understanding, or confusion about any facet of existence.

    I would like to have that feeling in my dreams again sometime.

    B) have you ever eaten

    an oyster
    a booger
    a grasshopper
    An oyster has never passed my lips. I am not good with sea-food in general, but am certainly not partial to a spunk-consistency slime-ball of protein.
    Boogers were probably my staple diet as a kid, and although I can't remember eating a grass-hopper, I'm sure it could have happened in passing.....

    C) three people living or dead you would like to have a five min or more conversation with
    Hmmm....

    Off the top of my head....

    My father... never really did have that important conversation before he passed away.
    Jimmi Hendrix .... seemed like an interesting bloke!
    That Jesus Christ fellow .... you never know, I might have learned something

    Share some of your favorite "Irish" sayings with us.
    Being from the North, our coloquial sayings are different from the South.
    You will frequently hear....

    "Wind yer neck in wee lad!" ..... meaning "stop being so petulent and pause for breath there, kind sir"

    "Stand back and let the dog see the rabbit!" ...... meaning "If you could kindly stop making a balls of that and let a real expert look at the problem"

    "Dead on" .... meaning simply all is sweeet!

    "Catch yourself on!" ... meaning "Wise up" or "Come to your senses, and stop being a dick!"

    "Bout ye mucker" .... meaning " I hope all is well in your world my good fellow"

    "It's a mingin day fer a dander" .... meaning " It's a bit wet outside to go for a leisurely stroll"

    "Yer man's a quare savage tool" .... meaning "That fellow really is quite the idiot."

    "Thon spoon's away in the head" ... meaning " That fellow could do with some psychiatric assistance"

    Considering the ancestral land survived on what must have been raw potatoes and potato mash (poteen!), I don't know if we have that much in the way of country specific food. There is of course colcannon which is a white cabbage and mashed potato dish, although I have never tried it. Potato bread, however is made from mashed potato, flour and salt, and is a staple of the classic Irish breakfast along with Soda bread and black and white pudding. Soda bread is now available in England as well, but the traditional Potato bread does not seem to have caught on anywhere except Northern Ireland.
    Irish stew is bound to be represented in other countries, being a wholesome dish of lamb shin stock, with pieces of lamb, diced potato, various vegetable cubes and onion.
    In all honesty, apart from Irish stew and the Irish breakfast, everyone here tends to eat more traditional food such as roast meats, game, pasta and rice dishes, indian, oriental, spanish and mexican based recipes. Paying to go out for a meal demands Michelin star quality cooking to justify the prices, and every household here tends to have at least someone who is a good cook.

    Either start in Dublin, or Belfast and hire a car to drive round the coast.
    I would start in Belfast and work counter-clockwise up the Antrim coast to take in the Giant's Causeway, then continue round the coast to Sligo and Donegal.
    Most of the impressive stuff is down the west coast through Clare, Galway and Connemara, with beautiful lakes and mountains down in Cork. The Burren in Clare/Galway is unique and breathtaking.

    You guys are a funny bunch hehe.

    Your description of paradise quite suits where I live, except the coconuts and nymphs LOL.
    I asked the helmet question BC I would like to have a King Diamond Helmet. A Uvex Carbon Enduro Helmet. I like the Carbon look, but it is in Carbon finish which is everything but visible in the dark.

    I really consider to get an Ultralight with floats. that will ease everyday life and small holidays

    Cheers man! Great Well!

    I had a look at that lid there now.
    Looks sweet for your needs and good quality.
    Carbon is a big no-no for any solvent spraying.
    I sprayed a carbon tennis racket a few years back and it seemed fine, then imploded with a restring.
    Not what you want on a spill dude.

    The helmet is a winner indeed.one of the 2 which fit my head well (The other one is Arai Viper), and the only one which supports my riding position.
