MCN’s Angus Farquhar and Marc Abbott are off on a tour of the Emerald Isle this week on their long-term test bikes

Farquhar and Abbott will be pilling on the soft luggage and taking the Honda CBR600F (supplied by DK Motorcycles) and VFR800 VTEC (supplied by DK Motorcycles) across the Irish Sea from Fishguard in Wales to Rosslare in the Republic before riding a whistle stop tour up the East coast.

They plan to take in the wonders of the Wicklow Mountains before stopping at Dublin and on to Belfast to take in the Ulster Grand Prix road racing, The Giants Causeway, Joey’s Bar and a lap of the NorthWest 200 circuit.

Farquhar will be sending back regular updates on their progress throughout the week.
