Just wondering if anyone fancied an off-road jaunt on the Monday as I'm free.
Over in Wales doing some trails, or perhaps Salisbury Plain?
Anyway let me know.

Love to Dave but off to Halkidiki for two weeks with the family. However I will have at least one day riding trails in the hills on a hired DT125R.

mine's the worst excuse - I'm at cub camp. I've been volunteering since my son first went and now it's my daughter's first camp. Three days with homesick, eight-year olds in the peering rain. Oh joy of joys. Still, taking the @ so may be able to sneak off for a spin.

I might take you up on that later in the year Simon. I've been meaning to go over the water for while. Will you show me around / give me some pointers?

Yep that won't be a problem, and if i can't then i'm sure Phoenix will sort you out.

Got my crash bars but still no off road tyres, just cant bear to bin a perfectly good set of road tyres! Up for trying to wear them out Monday though? Anywhere really, long as its not mud as you have got to have the tyres. Not far away near Chippenham.

Update: Just had a text off me mate who i'm s'posed to be going up the Glyders with, seems he's got a bout of man flu (and we all know how bad that is !!).

So weather permitting i'll probably be free if you're heading in the Wales direction.
TW152's and crash bars not arrived yet so light trails perhaps.....

Ok both.
So what tyres have you got on, as I did fancy a bit of off-road action?
Nothing too serious but some of the basic trails are probably still quite slippy with mud after all this rain.
Fancy heading over Wales way Peter to meet Cabbage or where you thinking more your way?

Didn`t have anything in mind really, anywhere but if its a muddy ride i shall probobly have to get out and take a bit of rubber off mine so i can get a new set soon. Tools for the job and all that. Presently a set of pure road tyres couldnt tell you what they are they were on it when i got it but will put on a set of dual purpose ones next to give myself the option of a bit more fun. Just too tight to do it untill they are worne out !

Trailmax on the front and TW152 on the rear, they're no TKC80's, but they'll do as long as it's not too bad.
