    Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years.

    The Longest Day (Planning)
    Firstly I would like to thank all those who participated in any way to the organization of this years event, I think that all the riders had a good weekend and from chatting to some of the non-XRV riders our total count in fund raising could be quite a bit more than I was expecting. We set a...

    Yes, it is true, I forget about this Forum until I get an email telling me someone has posted to a long forgotten topic. I wondered why that was as I am a little more active on a couple of other biking forums. I have come to the conclusion that it is an age thing. Most of the contributors...
  17. Stickers

    Chatter
    My new bike is looking a bit plain Jane as apart from the XRV and Wolfpack stickers there aren't any. What about a Piel Island sticker? Is there any call for one?
