Of course he chose the silver one ....... he's been lurking long enough to know.......:rollin:
Inside the M25, just back to biking ...... sounds like a congestion charge dodge to me ;)

Nice choice in bike , by the way

Welcome to the fun factory, and congrats on your new bike. You sound like a sane and sensible person with reasonable style and good taste, so I can assume you got the blue one.
I am not inside the M25 anymore, had the good luck/sense to come back to Dublin '96, after eight years there. Still miss it (not).

Thanks for the welcome, Flame red is the only colour of choice for me I'm afraid, Luckily I only have the bike for fun don't have to the rat race in the mornings!
I am over in your neck of the woods for a weeks holiday beginning on Saturday recommend any good pubs/bars in Dublin
keep it upright

Oh thats a tough one. :) There is one pub in Rathgar that I wouldn't be seen dead in, (something about being refused when I was sixteen or seventeen :eek: ), And there is one in Tallaght which I am not keen on (an ex-girlfriend works there :rolleyes: ). Most of the rest of the twenty thousand or so pubs are pretty decent.:p
Ok, seriously though. Flame Red bike so you probably prefer your pubs a little louder, a little more active. A good starting point is Temple Bar. It is an area in central Dublin with lots of bars which cater for tourists, downside is that a large number of the tourists tend to be English Stag and Hen parties. Try one or two pubs just to get a feel. When you are finished there, stroll down the road to the 'Porterhouse' on Parliment street. They have there own micro-brewery and lots of imported beers (unusual in Ireland). They also have a nice atmosphere, good service and usually have live music. It is one of my personel favourites. About as far again upriver, is the 'Brazen Head', claims to be the oldest pub in Dublin. Very good pints, excellent service, good mixed bunch of customers.
There is a pretty good web site which covers the pub scene in dublin:

.......been there , nice one , must do !
I know how you pronounce "cheers" in Irish but don't know how to write that , Paul...?
Ps: for a good burger dish in Dublin......The Elephant !

The Irish salutation is usually spelt <strong>Slante</strong> with a fada (accent) over the e. It is pronounced : Slan rhymes with lawn (as in grass) te sounds like 'cha' as in as in 'a cup of cha' or sometimes 'che' as in the start of 'chest' . Funnily enough, it gets easier to say as the night wears on. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/ohwell.gif ALT=":\">

Thanks for all the info Paul, I will try a few of your recommendations next week, Went for a ride in the sun this evening managed to rack up 400 miles on the bike now still shaking out the ring rust though.
The bike is fantastic to ride and we are planning a trip to her motherland to watch the Mugello gp with a two week stay in Tuscany can't wait. Anyone going to Donnington or brands this year it would be nice to see another RST in the car park.
