Re: hello from ireland!
The laws in the UK are very restrictive, but I am not familiar with Irish law. I think the Garde don't care as long as you aren't going too fast. I didn't see a single motorized bike the last time I was in Ireland, in late 2008. I wish the Guinness tasted as good here as it did in Ireland.
