    Greg's trail ride for pogos

    Five of us made the ride.

    Unfortunately Dave Emsley had a minor fall - such an easy lane too!





    More later

    Thomas! There's a mouse duck in the house!

    By 08.45hrs yesterday, just five of us had gathered in the carpark of The Hand. We were:

    1. the lost soul - DR-Z
    2. Dave Emsley - G450X
    3. Bushpig - 450EXC
    4. strobingred - KTM 400EXC
    5. Greg - Husaberg


    Our first run took us down Heartbreak Hill - fecking steep, fecking slippery and a fecking great drop at the end (which, I have to confess, I walked my bike down )

    We then had a road ride to Llanarmon where we saw 3 GSs in a hotel called The Hand. We figured that they had checked into the wrong hotel but a quick work confirmed that they had nothing to do with UKGSer. But how spooky is that??

    After a couple of hours we rode up this lane ....





    ... to meet Timpo's motley crew coming in the other direction. So a 5 minute break was had with a quick bollox exchange.

    Then the bombhole...



    Shortly after that, I found that my bike was cutting out in big puddles, so I stopped and changed the plug (which I now suspect has an intermittent fault). The bike ran faultlessly after that.

    Dave then came a cropper in a small hippo bath:





    Others rushed to his assistance for their cameras ....





    Dave tries to more firmly plant his bike:



    We then rode back to Heartbreak Hill with the intention of riding up it. The Lost Soul (on a borrowed bike), was first up....



    Or maybe not ....





    Bushpig's efforts resulted in a snakebite. The lads set to to change the tube ...



    ... whilst others carefully supervise the operation:



    But it's all for naught as the new tube is also pinched:



    So Bushpig rides back to The Hand with a flat front.

    Thanks for the company guys - a great day!!

    I have fond memories of that "hippo hole" from the march moon weekend lifting a big 950 ktm out which came to a sudden stop when ridden by a hulk from Australia
