Hi, new to the Forum. I have always ridden large touring bikes but have recently added a CRF250L for small backroads riding. I don't want to ride off road, just the small tarmac tracks that wind over moors and Dales. The CRF has the stock knobbly tyres and I don't feel secure cornering on tarmac...
Took the opportunity to skive off and enjoy the Spring Sun for a few hours today
Decided to have a run up to Leyburn for a spot of lunch and take in a few lanes on the way
Not long before I came across a fallen tree, luckily there was just enough room to squeeze under
Just been up to yorkshire dales, green laning, had a fantastic time but im in need of a few bits and pieces for doing a service.
Brake pads front and rear
clutch(is it best to use new friction plates and steel plates)
Whats the best place to get these bits from?
Anyone fancy a few trails around the Forest of Bowland / Yorkshire Dales next Friday. Heading to do the Salter Fell then into the Dales. Heard the Fell is easy, but no idea what else we will run into.
Or....if theres anyone who knows the area that wants to lead. Im in the process of marking a...
Just seeing if anyone would be interested in a meet in the Yorkshire Dale's ?

As promised here are a few pictures from my weekend excursion into the Yorkshire Dales. I took the long way down going by Keilder, Hexam then on to Blanchland and Stanhope.
The road over Stanhope moor from Blanchland.
From Stanhope I nipped up to Alston.
Then on to Middleton in...
Bit of an urgent one here so posting in chatter.
We are supposed to be off tomorrow afternoon (Friday) up to the Highlands for a few days camping but the weather isn't looking too great so were looking at the possibility of somewhere around the Dales instead. Can anyone recommend a campsite...
I've managed to win back some holiday so was thinking of heading back to my Dad's in Yorkshire for a few days on the XR, and was thinking of getting a little instruction on trail riding/green laning and general off road techniques.
My Dad lives in Kirkby Malzeard (a few miles from Masham), and...
Had a ride out on Saturday to Hawes, first time out with luggage and wife.
Bit of a test ride, only 117m but the bike was great and didn’t miss a beat.
Stayed the night at the Bulls Head Hotel, £60 for a basement room (no windows but great vaulted ceiling). Very friendly and a good...
I had a ride up to Tan Hill today to see if any of the HUBB crowd where about. Unfortunately they had gone for a ride to the lakes.
Still it was a cracking ride, went via Barnard Castle, A66, returned via Keld, Reeth, Richmond.
really great day.

Bit of a last minute decision but I'm off out for a wee jolly in the Dales on Sat am (5th july) if anyone fancies coming along for all or part. I am travelling down from Darlington (5:30am for the scenic route of course! :D) and starting at 7am (leaving at the latest 7:30) in Wetherby at the...
I had a couple of hours spare on Sunday morning so decided to take the scenic route to Arkengarthdale over the Stang forest and return via Reeth and Richmond. 60 miles in just under 2 hours only stopping for a few piccys.
The day got even better when I realised the MotoGP was on just as I...

I'd like to do a run on this Sunday coming (19th June), that takes in quite a few easy off-road sections near Kirby Malzeard.. The off-road stuff is easily manageable on road tyres and the scenery is wild. You know you are in the middle of nowhere..
IanS - you've done most of it already so I...
