    I'm thinking about a van as well, right now!

    It's tipping down here, and the forecast seems to suggest it might stop by Tuesday. I don't mind riding in the wet, but it's far from a pleasure, and heavy rain all the way there and back is not something I'm that fussed about doing.

    Anyone want a single room at the Hand?

    Shugie - contact David James and get a van between you?

    Over the past couple of years of offroading in this area, the forecast has been *completely* unreliable when the weather is this changeable.

    Worried by the rain?? they fecked up the forcast for the last two weeks so ime buggered if ime gona let the met office spoil my fun
    Pissed down for two weeks in Spain last year so two days should be a breeze.
    Anyhow what ever happened to the power of possitive thought ??
    If you think its gona be crap it will, why not just prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

    I really want to do the trails on my X-Challenge, but the lack of any luggage means I will have to travel there (about 3.5 hours) in my off road gear which is not waterproof or warm. If it is pishing down I will either have to bring the big bike or try to carry everything I need on the little one. A test packing session tonight will make my decision.

    Hi Dave, I'm going thru the same debate - the GS is winning at the mo so take yrs & we can pick each other up!

    Ah but you have TKC's on your 1200..........I don't and it will get very messy if it is as wet as the forecast

    I am going to try and work out a soltuion to take the XC becuase I have been working on getting it ready over the last couple of days. Getting a X-moto seat and a Zumo mount delivered today and fitted bar risers and a screen last night.
