Met up with Tim at 11am this morning for a day in a playground.

My Scorpa decided to have a strop and took 90 minutes to get going.... kick kick kick, tank off-plug out-clean plug-plug in, kick kick kick tank off-plug out heat plug on camping stove-clean plug-plug in kick kick kick.... not having any of it. So decided to admit defeat and stripped off the gear and threw it (as you do) back in the truck.... just before I loaded it back on the tow bar I gave it one more try...... hoo-feking-ray, she fired into life :bounce1

Another chap turned up who spoke strange.... he muttered something about it being to hard for him :augie:D

Yes that's the one..... it takes sheer skill to place the bike so close to the camera man and then step off just before it hits the ground... as Fred Dibnah used to say, "did you like that" :D:D:D

:thumb2 It's the sort of gentlemans sport that appeals to me. I'm all for hooning around at warp factor 9, and still really enjoy a quick road ride, but as I get older I keep getting drawn to the idea of more off road stuff, bit of enduro? Trials? Maybe join a green laning club..?

I must be growing up :toungincheek

Another lamb to the slaughter..... as a fellow Kent resident I suppose it falls to me to snare you further!

:D

If you fancy going along to watch a trial there's one just outside Canterbury on Friday morning and a beginners one at Canada Heights on Monday.

The one on Monday would give you an excellent insight into how to begin, if the weather holds there could be over 100 riders turn up. I'll probably be there and will gladly help if I can.

Yes i totally agree with gl , enduro is great fun and i love moto x most sundays , trials appeal to me from a balance and accuracy point of view and just fancy a go at it. Theres loads of places to practice, especially clint of this forums ground :augie if he,s reading this :thumb just need to do some homework on bikes now

Looks like the Kent contingency is growing.

I am down in Rochester, and may be at canterbury and should be at Mondays play day.

Between Lebowski and a couple of the other guys you will be in good hands.



Nice clips Paul and Tim. :D

BHT had a good run in the stream here but the last couple of seconds could have been painful:comfort
