    Nice. Extra brownie points for camping out.

    There are some roads in South America that may interest you :-)

    I think the ' should be before the 19 in the title screen, not after it :-)

    All those wanting to have a go at the try out TET offensive - we will be meeting at Baslow, in Derbyshire. Just north of the massive roundabout there there is a smaller mini roundabout and if you go left towards Calver you soon find a church on the L. On the R is a cafe called Charlies which appears to be a good place to meet. 10am on Saturday 13th July. Leaving at 10.30 You will need lunch, motorcycle with decent off road tyres (50/50 min), plenty to drink, MOT, tax and insurance (this is all on public roads despite there being little tarmac). Thre will be a running total of who falls off most, mainly because I came at the bottom last time so I need to pretend I have at least improved somwhat.

    Keep your hairy arse in your trousers and I think we can wing it.

    Its cheaper than a Starfucks or Costa billion, so I'm taking an executive decision on Charlies!

    Boisty, Are you pegging it or coming with something that is better suited to what is proposed? If you are coming in a van with something in the back, PM me and I can find you a suitable place for all day parking close by.

    Cheers

    Dave

    Anyone who wants to come along is welcome. However a dropped bike is a certainty!
    Oh, how true these words were :-)

    We started, and ended with all smiles. Failed in our bid to demolish the charity walkers and then tried to work out why we were the only non orange bikes on the trail.

    Sadly as the day wore on, Dobbi's prophecy came true.

    Boisty probably had the most stable bike, but that was because it spent most of the time on the side stand while he tried to start it :-)

    Dobbi will hopefully load some film, when he has fitted a footrest and fixed the rad leak ........

    Dobbi was last seen entering his garage armed with tools and a quantity of water.

    I'm feeling a tad buggered, however, I excelled at falling off and also at riding 35 miles with a severly leaking radiator without filling it up, or the temp gauge reaching over 3 bar, the usual.

    I'm thinking of modding an easy you source radiator because i'm getting fed up with the weakness of the oem one.

    Great day, 2 fords, everything good!

    Maybe we could get the nice radiator men in Glasgow to make a chopped version, slightly thinner?
