    With respect to riding on the plain, as long as you are not reckless or off the rights of way then there is no problem. I've been driving/riding there for several years and never had a problem except in my jeep which had NI plates.

    You do need to stick to byways though or you will get a bollocking or worse. However where there is a graded track running alongside or near a byway, or where such a track bypasses a byway that would be impossible to ride then they are usually understanding.

    And bear in mind the the soldiers on exercise are undergoing training on which their lives may depend so no-one will be happy if we disrupt it for them, including riding on legal rights of way if it goes right through their camp, exercise or whatever.

    Some of the military landrovers are driven fast and perhaps a bit carelessly so watch out as you go round blind bends or cross tracks down which you can't see very far, they might be one steaming along to take you out. Not usually a problem in dry eather as you can see the dust trails.

    I wrote a long post about the various aeas of the Plain somewhere on another forum, will post the link if I find it.

    Please explain this concept of clean in connection with bike

    New bike = clean

    Good bike = used = muddy, salty, ACF50, more mud, more salt, blah blah blah

    It still starts stops and goes just as well if not better than new, properly serviced, (ok you have to scrape and dig about to do some of this) but honestly, cleaning is something one does to control bacteria in key parts of your home. This is not applicable to bikes

    If you love your bike ride it don't torture it with detergent, acid and endless streams of other chemicals
