    Mrs Pavey is called Linley.

    I agree that there appears to be a separation between the ORS course run by the Pavey's and BMW.

    I did speak with Simon and wanted to assist, he said he would see what he could do, but couldn't promise anything....I did call him back and left a message but he never returned my call,

    I then e-mailed the BMW off Road school and they did come back to me offering a day for £250.00 but was such short notice "2 days" I couldn't do it. "Someone must of dropped out....or had there bike stolen" and they thought they could make some more money!!!

    Overall has left me with a real bitter taste and however good they are......bollocks to them!!!!!

    Also, I don't think I can repeatedly borrow my brother-in-law's motocross armour so that would have to be added to the mix.

    That's an expensive hobby. I bought an old XR250 for around a grand and get to go playing whenever I want. 5 hours on Saturday - cost me about 10 quid in fuel. You can do TRF events for about £20-25.

    Indeed it is. But I guess that Devon is better provided for in the way of Green Lanes than Kent? I mean, it wouldn't take long to ride them all around here, would it?

    There are plenty enough lanes in Kent to make a very long day and still have some left to do. I've managed 130 mile days from Maidstone to Dover via Pilgrims Way / Chilham / Wye / Shadoxhurst etc etc and that's not considering North of Maidstone
