    Hi All I went for a few hours of DAS training today and the instructer showed me a 2003 AT with only 4300 miles on it. It belongs to an ex Welsh rugby international who parked it up there a few years ago and hasn't touched it since. The paint work is in good nick but the engine casings have...

    If I may ask a question, "What would you like from your advanced training?" I'm mainly focusing on the off-tarmac side of things, but any ideas would be great. This can include prices, times, dates, locations, course coverage, their bike or yours, and how big would you like the training...

    I went for some Big Bike Rally Challenge (BBRC) training today to get me prepared for the first race in April. And, it was so worth it.
