The County of Angus has a famous son it seems. The Father of American-Scot Co founder of Harley-Davidson Hogs has been found to of lived in Angus over 150 years ago.
They have found the exact cottage that he lived in until emigrating in the mid-1850′s. The cottage has now been returned to it’s former glory and is going to opened to the public in July of this year
Can you beat 4 days of riding out, chilling out and then partying hard with like minded enthusiasts? I don’t think so. And with this years charity being Muscular Dystrophy Ireland, you really can feel very pleased with yourself for being for so unself-centered! (If that’s a word)
This years Bike Fest will be on the 1-4th June at Killarney in Ireland’s South-West. To give the festival it’s full title “Ireland Bikefest International Motorcycle Festival 2012″ will be held for the 6th year running and with the usual Bike Village and Custom Show this year looks to be a good one.
Ireland Bike Fest is a Harley rider’s wet dream.
BikeFest is located just outside Killarney on the southwest tip of Ireland, among the picturesque lush and rolling landscapes of County Kerry. The bike-
friendly roads make exploring the region a must; from the serene Lakes, to the surrounding mountains and dramatic coastline.
However, as well as riding further a field, you’ll be keen to spend time at the heart of the BikeFest event – perusing the Bike Village and enjoying the planned schedule of events that are taking place onsite throughout the weekend. As well as live music, this year’s event will also stage the infamous Custom Bike Show, test rides and of course, the Sunday Parade. You’ll also have the opportunity to win a brand new Harley-Davidson® motorcycle with your donation to the event’s chosen charity, Muscular Dystrophy Ireland.
If you are looking for somewhere to stay for the festival or need further info on Ireland Bike Fest 2012, the Harley UK website has plenty of advice and recommendations. Unfortunately I will be away for this one but it looks like it going to be a stormer!
