Took part in Exercise ENDURING HELP over the weekend, a 24hr session for teams of four using MT350 Army Harley Davidsons. Had never ridden them before and must say am very impressed. We crashed and dropped them hundreds of times over the 24hrs and they didn't complain.

We completed about 125km each over the period - the lap was about 5km mainly through woods with a cheeky sand bowl and numerous 'specials'. Only fell off about 5 times. Rode into a tree once. Riding through the night in woods with crap headlights is an experience!

Some of the other bikes that took part were some Honda CR250 and the Dutch brought along their KTMs (jammy b*stards).

All in all we did well considering our team were novices (including me). Came 11th out of 80 teams. Some pics below:

Someone has an embarrassing 'OFF' in the pits!

Very nice piccies, what kind of camera/lens :)

When you said "Harley" I had a slightly different bike in mind before seeing the first picture. Looks like you had a nice day out.

I recently treated myself to a new digi Canon 400D SLR. These pics had either the standard 18-55mm or a 200mm one used. Amazing quality compared to my old point-and-shoot. Very happy with it :cool:

Sorry Bazza, all teams were by number rather than Unit so I wouldn't have recognised them.

I recommend getting amongst it next year if you get the chance.
