    Sorry for the late reply, girls seem to have overtaken motorbikes as my main hobby this week!
    I will be on a 650 dakar on TKCs or MT21s, I have done a fair bit of off road mainly in the dales, a bit in the peaks and an off road trip to morocco. Can you put me in the middle group then as i don't really want to hold anyone up and I also have to ride the bike back to yorkshire!
    Cheers,
    Chris

    Lordie, you will be fine with me in the Medium Plus group, especilally with your experience....... There is no race so you can't hold anyone up. It leaves the Medium group for the Boxers.

    Can I be put down for the medium ride please.

    Will be on a GSA, with the wife as pillion. After doing a couple of pistes over the Atlas Mountains we feel the medium is most suitable.

    Ta very much

    Hi Stu,
    2 up on a GSA you'll be best off on the easier ride, especially if it has rained at all in the previous week.

    Oy, I resemble that remark!
    Must get Denise her own login.
    I'm away that weekend, trail riding in Spain, so if Denise turns up on the 640 you'll know why.

    Hmmm :scratch chin
    After being out with the TRF a few weeks ago and keeping up with them on my GSA12 I'm actually quite up for the medium plus now....

    My new shiney white Thor MXBoots need breaking in properly as well.

    Is medium plus prohibited for GSA12's?

    I'm a "have a go" kind of bloke who's not afraid to spend a few hours picking his bike up.
    Oh an I've got TKC80's on.
