Hi guys, any of you up for a little offroadng
The lanes are a little wet.
I used to do that years ago :thumb:
Looks like hard work now---- getting old ?
I'm wrecked just watching it.
You can see why Hitler never stood a change against the Russians.
Yeah I'm in thats right up my street still have a go occasionally.
My mate from Sweden did this a couple of years back and is on about doing something similar again.
Wants me to go with him
We could get a MHFun team and have a go, whaddya reckon:thumb:
Brian could be Team Leader
sounds good to me,up for that:thumb:
No way. Done it once in warm sunny dry Montana and it was great. Just 4 of us cross country for big steaks but nothing more taxing than a ploughed field.
A road trip, yes, I'm all ears for any warm, dry daft ideas.
I used to ride enduro a fair few years back but her indoors put a stop to it when I used to come home all battered and bruised
I would love to give it a go again on something not too taxing if someone wants to lend me a bike :thumb:
They were happy young Daze
Those looked mighty sensible bikes, surprising quality for Russia.
Unlike those nutters Charlie and Ewan and not to forget our own Forestboy who like picking up Panther tanks.
These days I come home battered and bruised from Funster meets
Makes me wish I had not sold this last year
It was an insane ride, 950cc enduro 100bhp and it would do 130mph but it would rip its knobleys to shreds at that speed
I would love to be healthy enough to do that
you'll be the one in the red and the one that keeps falling off, that'll be me
I am sure the vodka must numb the pain, I will have to get some in
Well you're welcome to join me on my next trip. Ship the bike to Houston mid May then fly out myself end of May. Then a nice little ride to Prudhoe Bay in northern Alaska at the top of the Dalton and back approx 10000 miles. allow 6 weeks including time at the start to do the import docs and time at the end to prep the bike for shipping and resting your backside shall I pencil you in its not too late:thumb:
Whats the matter with you its good excercise especially in 6 inches of snow at minus 17c 5000 meters up a mountain.oh: You need to man up and take a few risks or you'll get bored and grumpy
But easily cured.
You are magnificently insane. Long may it continue.
Falling off was A Big Feature of that video. Didn't seem to bother them. In fact nothing seemed to bother them.
It's good to hear some of you are still up for it. Based here in Thetford we are lucky to have a couple of hundred of miles of legal byways through woods, lanes and pig farms. We ride classic trials and sometimes head off for the goat trails above the snow line in the Alps.
The Alaska trip sounds great, but end of May we will be on the road ride at Jaws Thetford meet.
Any of you fancy a green lane run anytime, I'm sure we can fit one in.
Just watched the video. Reminded me of the series Mondo Enduro. Anyone else used to watch it. Fantastic programm, will have to find the DVD and watch it again.
Great Video, use to ride off road in this country,..........nothing compared to what video showed though.
Did wonder with some of the 'get offs' wether had tyre pressures been lowered a tad things might have been improved.
Must admit to going to watch the other vid's in same series.........
this is what i was up to last Sunday,watching grandson enjoying himself,dad trying to keep up
