    Well I've decided that the easiest way to do my recent tour trip write up is going to be in the form of a blog. That way it's going to be more easily readable than by inserting a few random images on here. So, to date I've managed to write up the first half of the journey covering North Wales...

    I rebuilt my AT from the frame up in 2010, and then had to continue using it in all weathers as my only vehicle, and did a few events on it, and smashed the fairing to bits in the Pyrenees. So it now looks like shit again.:rolleyes: Does anyone have any recommendations for: wheel rim...
