Me and Cabbage are thinking of a nice day out possibly in May so if enough interest a date can be set for a big traillie day out. This will be a proper dual sport day with roads, as much off beaten track B road as possible and off road by ways. Will recce a loop as soon as the TA is shod with TKCs.
Hopefully once planned some may fancy joining us:thumbright:

Not all Tarmac i'm afraid, we plan to make it a Dual Sport ride, as in what these bikes were (supposedly) designed for :D.

Mat tell us where and I will see if my tourances will do it they have done quite alot of the lanes in SW.

You'll manage it, regardless what tyres you are on :D

We have a shortlist of trails so far, including some Phil has rode around the Begwyns, Also Strata Florida, The Roman road, Stepping Stones and Soar y Mynydd.

Obviously waiting for dry weather, and will choose the more big bike do-able lanes.

Nice one Bob:thumbup: J you have done worse on Tourances:D
Dates to look at will be 15th May or 22nd May dont think theres much on that month:blob8:
Definately wont be suitable for BT45 stylee slicks, thats why posted as a Dualsport ride, will even try to limit amount of A road, unless its particularly nice:D

Ok so we have takers for the 22nd lets look at that as the provisional date.
I have posted this ride as a BIG TRALLIE RIDE using off road orientated tyres. The route is yet to be sorted but will be probably more road than off road. The idea is to get some of these big dual sporters in the enviroment they do perfectly well. Bearing in mind an ADV ride was completeed by a complete novice on Tourances on a V strom anything is doable, but be prepared to slip a bit more than if you were on TKCs.
This is not intended to be an ADV style, more by way, orientated ride, it is probably a 70/30 % split and would therefore not be great for single thumpers that need an oil change every other village with a valve check required at the lunch stop:toothy8: Stuart you are more than welcome to come down for a thumper ride with us most other weekends:thumbup:
Hopefully the ride will take in some of South Mid and West Wales finest scenery, so will be a nice day out. Lets hope some decide its a bit different to the norm and decide to come along:thumbup:
