    Many thanks to Mav and Donna, had a brilliant day, learnt how to turn the bike in an enclosed space which suspiciously we all had to do on the next section. Fallen tree we were told..... hmmmmm

    Thanks to the others for making it a fun day, it was a good group, everyone was happy to share hints n tips.

    2 crashes 1 on camera (just) and one not, both were relatively slow speed, one back end stepped out on not so good tires for mud which spun the bike and happily propelled it in to the nearest banking! Trapped rider so we piled in to get it off his foot. Luckily no injury, though a slightly more bent (was told later) shifter.

    Other crash was rut related and rider decided to lay down for a rest. Again slowish speed. Clip to follow.

    Ah yes 2 breakdowns also, (I'm counting the KTM :-p sorry Keith) trail side repair on one and the other towards the back end of the day in the quarry. Recovery via the kinda Keith's van and Mav's directions, plus borrow ramp form someone called..... er.....(insert name and own up please I'm hopeless). Mikey keeping company as we headed back to get the van.

    On to Photo's!

    Sorry this one has to go in as well....

    Back to camp on the phone to recovery...

    Caption suggestions?!

    All in all a fun day. Would I do it again?... damn right I would.

    ferrol.

    Ahem, Ferrol...the KTM didn't breakdown........simply a jubilee clip required tightening which doesn't qualify as a break down!!!!

    The ramp belonged to Melch

    Got any more pics??

    Thanks to Mav and Donna for organising and leading this - I had a blast despite my close inspection of the local flora! Next time I'll make sure I have knobblys on!
