Having the good luck to live on the west coast of Ireland, I regularly do sections of the WAW. Never completed the whole of it. Thinking 2024 will be the year on the Himalayan.

As the WAW is so popular with European bikers, I am also on the Bunk A Biker site only for advice and coffee. Waiting for a new floor to be laid and then I will host.

Photos are from my local section of the WAW. Always happy to meet up and show people section that are not on the self guided maps1000004978-01.jpg20230908_182713.jpg1000053615-01.jpgDJI_0140-01.jpgDJI_0120-01.jpg

The Himalayan certainly suits the country roads in the Irish west, copes with Donegal roads really well....

Hope to get up that way next year. I sat on my first Himmy at the motorcycle show back in 2017/18 I think. Knew then I wanted one. Almost bought new but found the 2019 and she was the one I wanted.

Heyup from Yorkshire. I live on edge of the glorious Yorkshire Dales,biking heaven.
Last time I was over I stayed with my sister in Richmond for a week and saw bit of the district on one of my brothers Bullets.
Lovely country, and the weather was good, but the local bikers were a clanish lot.
And they all seemed to have crappy Bridgestone 020s on their rat bikes.
Spent another week based in Skye and covered the island and the north west in a 650 Cagiva Elephant, probably as good as any bike you can buy today.
But it pissed down most of the time which put a bit of damper on things.
Brightest memories are the, er, frisky Ozzie backpacker girls in the pub next to the B&B , who were, er, working, there to recharge their coffers after running out of cash.
Pity none had brought their mum with them!

My friends regularly go to Donegal to do off roading. The heavier duty stuff. Me, I avoided it for many years but now seem to have the bug
must find out where they go - I have a few dirt roads that the Himalayan can cope with, maybe they know some that I don't

I've done the southern part of the WAW, but it was on a Bonneville T120. I started from Skibbereen south of Cork. Got as far north as Galway, then headed east to Dublin to get the ferry to Holyhead. I'm hoping to complete the route next year, probably going again from Holyhead towards Galway then over the top around the Antrim coast towards Belfast to get the ferry back to Liverpool.
I just hope it doesn't rain quite as much next time:)

Rain is the one thing you can count on....
