    Off Road: Pics'n'Vids

    The problem is yer always so bloody busy trying to keep yer own bike upright that you've never got a camera in yer hands for the best bits.

    These are a few of the photos I took on the "Off Road Run".

    CATCRAWLER



    FatFergie


    Famous




    This is the pic of "AfterBurner" who won the ""Special Test""

    Group photo taken immediately after the "special test"






















    After we took our customary group photo we went to the track where some of the lads had a play.

    This bit was great, the surfave was very grippy and there were humps
    and hollows you could bounce off, went on for a good bit.

    Thanks

    Thank you, one and all. Aidan, Mandy and Jockser and especially Brendan, Seamus, Daithi for the off-road run.
    What an introduction to Irish trail-riding! Fantastic day out, great company - and no gates!. Can we do it next weekend again?... when I get a new battery.

    Big thanks.

    A very big thank you to everyone for the encouragement and advice. It was harder than I expected and better than I expected and I got home without any (additional) aches and pains and without anything missing from the bike.
    I got by with long legs, a saint Christopher medal, fear induced adrenaline, loads of luck and your help.

    Brilliant photos and pictures. And brilliant riding too.
