I'm up your way several times a year.
Good bike choice.  :401:

Great pictures and great scenery and location. Looking at the road surface I'm sure you could do that with a stock CB500X.
I follow a few guys on YouTube who have ridden many of those trails in that area. One of them by the name of "Old Chainsawbob" lives in that area and used to have a CB500X he is in his late 70's now and still rides those trails.
I often wonder how those roads and trails were named.  :028:

when is it not a rainy day in Donegal? :008:

Lived in Killkenny, Ennis and then Lahinch a while the place, especially Clare, but Donegal is arguably more beautiful

I was meaning for a rainy day here Jonathan.
You have spent some time on the Emarald Isle, amazing.
I have yet to venture further south, hope to do the southern Wild Atlantic Way soon.
Got those stickers made, they look great on the bike. Thanks again mate. 👍

Very glad to see your bike's fixed and you're out and about again :305:
Cheers mate, I will need to do a video or write up regarding the insurance repair at some point.  :028:

Thanks for watching, it's a pleasure to share. Hopefully others might add it to their list of places to visit. It's on the Wild Atlantic Way which is very popular at the moment.  :152:

If anyone is over in Donegal, I can highly recommend the island of Arranmore.
The ferry costs 20 return. Quiet roads and amazing scenery.
Here's my video playlist for a rainy day.

Yes, it was.

I thought it could only be yourself. Your bike looked black in colour as I passed, had to look at the footage again.
That's been twice now at roughly the same spot.

Spotted ! Was it You ? / Spotted CB500X Friday 26th July

Riding my Vespa GTS300 home from work yesterday, spotted a CB500X between Banton and Banknock at approx 4:20pm.
The rider can be seen on my "Vespa Commute" video That I have just uploaded.
I think I know who it was.  :152:

Maintenance and Servicing / Re: cb500x Rear brake Pads AHHHHHH

Clip 9 is a small shim that goes between the caliper and the caliper bracket....under normal circumstances you wouldn't need to remove this unless you've split the assembly for whatever reason. As Jmo pointed out, it's not necessary if you're just replacing pads but it sounded like you had the whole thing apart, based on your post...Glad you've sorted it :028:

I just replaced my rear pads recently and spring pad 6 kept dislodging and falling out due to pitting and corrosion in the caliper over the years of winter riding, it was a total "pita" trying to keep it in place whilst lining the pads up without contaminating the pad surface. Also retainer 9 was dislodged due to corrosion also.
