First race last weekend - the Hafren rally in Wales - a grade 4 (out of 5) on the difficulty scale. A 210km mixture of tight enduro sections and flat out fire road in the beautiful Welsh countryside ... t'was great fun and the old girl made a good account of herself.

The suspension mods and decent rubber really helped - I finished an uneventful 4th (out of 9) in the multi-cylinder class so pretty pleased with that.... plenty more speed to come though I hope!

Thanks for the support chaps!

Got a few more pics to add when they come through...

Was hitting 70-80mph on the fire roads so the speed there is ok - just need to get better in the tight stuff...

Anyone who fancies some trail riding or joining for some racing... I'm always up for it - Jamie92j!?

The three in front of me were:

BMW HP2 super enduro
Transalp (superb ride from a very fast rider)
KTM 990 adv.

Behind there were two HP2s, two 990 adventures and another transalp.

The guy who won it on the HP2 was brutally fast...

If you go to Big Bike Rally Challenge 2013 | The Home of UK All Terrain Rallying for Motorcycles., there's loads of info and a video or two from last year.
