  1. The dog was feeling a bit rough so after a few internal organ replacements it was ready to ride cover your eyes if your squeamish this is open heart surgery. The day started with the rebuild After a little work she lives A few hours later and i'm on the road but thinking i better not stray too far after the rebuild so up to my local byway . It was pointed out to me the shadow looks like a reindeer lol And then onto my mountain After a check for oil leaks it was onto check out a lane that was illegally closed but overturned by the TRF Then some of my favorite tarmac to sennybridge for fuel This is the end of the roman road out of Trecastle only took the photo because it doubled up as a piss stop Then onto the Crychan forest which has been graded and has made it easy enough to drive your car through now Then it was the ride home trying to keep it under 55. past the Llwyn Onn reservoir it was like a mirror these are photos of it up the right way and upside down you tell me which is which On the A470 i had to suffer the humiliation of a scooter rider burning me off because i was bedding things in the fucking wanker had the cheek to wave to me Bike ran beautifully restored my love for it again

  3. It's finally out and I hardly cried like a girl at all. Sorry about the blurry photo, my hands are still shaking. First wee when I got in a little while ago made me jump, that should ease a bit. I was busting for it, rode like a loon to get home so I could do a sitty down wee.

  12. Saturdays ride was going to be just a reccy ride for me on my own to check out a few dirt tracks i hadn't ridden before just outside the Llandovery area, i advertised the ride on the TRF forum to see if one or two fancied a day out and before i new it there was seven of us so ended up having to plot a route i already new. Start time was an early one for me 08:30 and we were meeting the seventh member on route. Plan was a road ride to Sennybridge area which was about 30 miles or an hour away on the roads we were taking. Two of the lads that turned up were on two strokes i didn't fancy the road work on those i had explained before hand how much there was they said they were ok with it so after introductions and a few rules of the ride explained off we went. Headed up the Cynon valley to Penderyn and then Ystradfellte and onto the devils elbow to meet up with the seventh member of our group Here's a stock a photo of the devils elbow A couple of miles after this we were onto the first of the trails and the road work was soon forgotten This is a bit of a tough one plenty of fails here i was lucky enough to see it all Jason here having a breather very new to this stuff he went home early on the last ride with me but he was i'll LOL Steve concentrating hard But not happy with just riding the bike he throws it to the ground and decides to do some weight training as well Even the two stroke boys found it a challenge Steve gets going again for the whole of 5 yards and he's down but still smiling Andrew on the mighty DRZ400 And Paul bringing up the rear finding it much easier on his CRF250L than his CRF450L Stopped for fuel in Sennybridge as the KTM two stroke needed fuel every 40 to 50 miles, done a few easy lanes after but no photos on those . The next eventful lane i know as Lampkin lane named after Dougie Lampkin an ex world trials champion due to how difficult it is but we were going down it so no problem. At the bottom is a small river crossing with a very slippery base Steve finds out just how slippery it is and Unfortunately Steve breaks his leg in the fall Luckily there was a mechanic there with a set of Allan keys to fix it So after the laughter stopped and with Steve rebuilt we took on the exit from the lane Almost got run over trying to video fucking two stroke riders don't give a shit LOL Next up was a steep climb, last time i done it it was wet today was easy compared to then everyone made it ok which was disappointing LOL From here there were a few more lanes with no photos taken, then into Llandovery for the two strokes to fuel up and a sandwich for ourselves Heading out west of Llandovery and done a few lanes I've not done before and onto another little stream which i forgot to mention was a little deeper than it looked LOL Stopped for a breather here Jason thoroughly enjoying himself testing the water resistance of his new boots There was a few more uneventful lanes with no photos before we were on the route home Stopped here on the roman road waiting for the others to catch up Steve still full of energy, when they did catch up the lad on the KTM two stroke had binned it twice behind us luckily only had some sore ribs After the roman road a few of us decided to check out the famous motel hill by going down it isn't any better than i remember this was taken just after Andrew had picked his bike up just doesn't show how steep it is No more photos from here, stopped to fill the two strokes up again in Sennybridge before the road ride home. I think everyone enjoyed themselves they were all still smiling and alive when i left them so that's a good sign

  13. Just had my first inoculation doodah. Had to walk a fair way to get it, glad I waited till I was sorted out first. I think I walked further than the horses that race at that track. Got the Pfizer one. Don't they make Viagra? I am expecting a stiff arm and a purple hand.

  21. Few shots from today.....crossed into Murcia and went to a very remote village that I'd never visited before......Los Odres. One bad road in and out and civilisation (if you can call it that) ends at the village. There was a road sign on the way in saying only residents were allowed to enter the place! Never seen anywhere else like that! It was a weird, creepy little place.......can't put my finger on why, it was just the general vibe that it had. Not a soul to be seen either! And no video because the cam kept getting splattered with bugs! Soon as I'd clean it the fucking thing would get splattered again.

  22. Started the day with a lovely drive to some different trees for the morning dog walk. We went down a mountain bike trail called Tin Pan Alley. It had just rained, so it was really nice and lush in the forest.

  23. The roads are jammed here, no fun riding with all the neck twisters out, apparently there is a big jam heading towards the NC500 with loads of vehicles being held up by a bunch of twats on hairdryers.

  25. Jeez, i'm gone for 5 days and no one searches for me. Just for that, gonna rub another trip/rally into y'all's faces. BMW Club of Northern California does a weekend shindig called the 49er Rally. Probably the first one of the year, due to the kung flu. It has been a favorite of mine for some time now cause of camping, roads, Yosemite Park, roads, Sierra Nevada passes, roads, drinking and drinking! we dont need no steeking gps thingy. Pizza! Created in the newnited states. dont care what the italians claim. Mono Lake, near Tioga Pass. Branded with the FTroop sticker, cause we get lost and things. Some Sonora Pass pics Half Dome in Yosemite, from the back side. Bike games courtesy of the GS Giants. I prefer the tent Some dont

  26. So i haven't got the energy to put any real content into this so here goes. While out on the dog yesterday i bumped into a couple of lads on CRF250L's and gets talking, the one is Steveoneleg my new best pal (sorry Bob ) and his buddy Jason twelve bellies. The pair of them are new to trail riding this year and members of the TRF (trail riders federation) same as me. After chatting for a while i mention i'm out for the day today and they ask if they could join me so a meeting place is arranged for the next day. I turns up about 9 has a chat explaining how i ride and i'm out for the day which is a like it or lump it sort of thing, and off we goes. Ride starts off with lots of scenic back roads and a few unpaved roads to warm things up heading to a place called Glasbury for breakfast which Steve takes full advantage of . On the route there i see just how green Jason twelve bellies is. He is finding everything hard work and says hes enjoying the experience but is asking lots of questions about the route home and complaining about a pounding head ache, he also said he hasn't felt 100% since his second covid jab two days ago . No photos up till now the first couple of lanes after the breakfast stop are a lot tougher than i though as the ground is still soaking even though we've had good weather for 2 or 3 days. Jason Steve This is a relatively easy lane but the wet and the ruts make it 100% worse this really took it out of poor Jason. Stopped for a breather A vid to see how slippery it was Next lane wasn't too bad but Jason decided to call it a day and head home leaving just me and Steve Which wasn't a bad idea as i think the next lane we would have been brushing the mud over Jason and leaving him there Steve doing a great job keeping things upright here It was hard going Next we were onto the easier stuff which now i think about it maybe i should have taken Jason straight to this stuff and skipped the earlier lanes, ahh well whatever More of the easy stuff, you tend to appreciate this more after slugging it out in the shit for a few hours LOL Stopped by this pond for a snack and a chat couldn't think of a nicer place the day was glorious Back on the track and a little further on in this photo i had to deal with an aggressive local bloke on a pushbike who stopped me to argue with me about riding there, saying i shouldn't be there. In my best i'm not going to punch the fuck out of you tone i explained he was wrong and educated him on the use of OS maps and what things meant on them and after a while i left with an apology from him for being such a cock on our initial encounter I tried not to let the twat upset me and after a few scenes like this he was a distant memory After an unexpected detour to get fuel (it might be just me but i expect everyone to turn up at the meeting point with a full tank) we get on the tracks that start us in the homeward direction @XTreme this is just a small steam crossing Last tricky lane of the day the camera just doesn't show how steep that is A long road ride home followed, Steve impressed me a lot, for someone who's only got into trail riding this year he rode great and whenever i said we can go home the quick way if you want,he choose to stick with the trail riding top bloke

  42. A few photos of my mooch about the Lleyn Peninsula on Saturday this was the route its about 150 mile round trip from the campsite First stop was at Criccieth to look at the castle but you had to pre book on line to get in so its just a screen grab from google maps for you lot The wife settled for a walk on the pebble beach, what is it with women as soon as she was on there she starts collecting stuff to take home Thought i might see Bruce bobbing about in the background but no Next stop we had a walk up to this, after some googling found out it used to be a windmill Some great views inland and of the coast, no sign of Bruce though The hills of Snowdonia National Park across the water Stopped at another beach for a walk, i liked this one it was almost deserted and free to park Had a look for Bruce here but still no sign of him Headed back to the campsite via Llanberis pass, shot a little vid on the way up, was real busy as usual luckily the bus pulled in at the top so i had a clear run down the other side We ate and drank far too much over the weekend got to get back on the trail bike to burn it off i think
