    For Sale / Wanted
    Removed from my Honda NX4 as I wanted a more aggressive tyre combo. Good nick, no cracking or any punctures, BUT these are 10 years old! The bike was stored under cover for the 10 years, so no visible damage from sunlight and they did not appear to have got stiff. Only done around 1K miles, if...

  18. Shropshire Green Lanes

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Come for a quick blast around the green lanes and white roads of Shropshire. Most of the lanes hereabouts are perfectly do-able on a large trail bike, even without knobblie tyres. The Long Mynd dominates the area, with plenty of ancient drover's trails to ride/drive along. Farmer's track On...
