  2. 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

  3. 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.

  7. So since covid restrictions have eased i've been waiting to do a fairly long day around Wales. So over the bridge and a great ride up through Usk to get to the Heads of the Valleys road and on past Brecon towards Usk Reservoir, somewhere I haven't been for over 10 years. I had a good look but couldn't see Fred anywhere........... Anyway, after a coffee from my flask and a good chinwag with a local who had an ace accent from Camden Town I back tracked a while incase I saw any riders covered in shit with a hairy dude leading them . I even stopped by the hell hole cafe in Llandovery just incase they were hanging around but no luck. So I moved onwards and out towards Llyn Brianne , on the way I needed a comfort break (we have ladies present so I'm not going to say have a piss) and found this ace old bridge over the River Towy, unfortunately my phone had a hissy fit and I've lost the photos but I can tell you that it was built in 1822 . I'd forgotten how good the road is around Llyn Brianne, there is some stunning scenery around there........... I also noticed at this point that my tyres are becoming more gay by the minute..........

  9. And yet deaths are still virtually flatlining. Infection rate doesn’t count for anything now, it’s admissions and snuffings. Admission rates are localised to places where idiots didn’t bother getting jabbed - it’s like a heat map for stupidity.

  10. I have a broken adjustment collar on one of my rear shocks. Need to compress the spring a way.............I have some car spring compression tools, but too big to fit on the scoots small springs. Tried making a adaptor, but they where not up to the job. Looked on YouTube, and there was a guy compressing the spring with a small rachet strap. Bought one today........give it a go tomorrow, If it stops raining.

  11. Travel restrictions have been lifted around my area, so the whole city has landed on my coastal doorstep for their fun time...... Crazy busy out there.....now the city folk normally burn themselves out by mid-July, but it might be a good weekend for some bike TLC while they get it out of their systems. . Running around like chickens on flotation devices...... I'll start with a short ride on Charlotte (my Honda) this morning before it gets much busier and then it looks like a sunny afternoon with some beers and WD40......the fun never stops here..... Then I have a date with the forest for the next few days! Have a lovely weekend everyone!

  15. We do things in life that makes little sense to others but makes us happy. Personally, I see absolutely no point in wasting money on a race rep for road use - but plenty do it. Some people spend money buying cuddly toys to stick on their machines, which I find equally unfathomable. Will it add value? Nope. Is it worth doing? Nope. Is it a waste of money? Yep. Am I going to do it anyway? Absofrikkenlutely.

  21. Waterproof bag arrived for across the back of the panniers, dont think I needed the 200 litre option and the dimensions on the website arent quite right…. On the upside my first thought was Buckster would like this bag, it’s cadaver sized and waterproof so no leaky DNA in your boot

  32. Weather was kinda warm - even at elevation - but still almost perfect for riding. I would have liked to do a bit of off roading but their bikes didn't really fit that plan of action so we stuck to the pavement...

  36. On the recent LEJOG NC500 trip we met a septuagenarian who did the whole thing and more on his 125cc shopping trolley in torrential rain with a bin bag strapped to the back… just cool, a really nice guy who we’ve just agreed to join on a very short Coast 2 Coast with in July. Its my sort of thing, ride on your tod and meet in the evening for some nosh and chat about whatever roses you stopped to smell along the way. He’s using The Great British Adventure Map to find things he’d like to stop and look at. So I bought it and the corresponding maps of the Great British Food destinations (published in 2019 so Covid will undoubtably have finished off some of that map) and the Great British place names which was made by a giggling 13 year old underlining rude words. For some reason my mind immediately turned to here, maybe because my new old friend stopped took a pic in TWATT just for us low brows on here My day today will be some work avoidance involving these!

  39. 'bout 20 minutes. 36€ i had the bike booked in for 14h00 but got there about half an hour early, Vincent, the shop manager turned up about 5 minutes after I did which was a surprise ( French lunch break is still traditionally 12 till 2) and he said he starts before the others to get a half h of calm and do some paperwork before oening the shop at 2 but he let me in so I could sit in the air conditioning and drink his coffee whilst waiting, Pascal the mechanic turned up at 13h45 and rather than open the main shop doors just pushed tigger in through the customer entrance and through the showroom and got straight into it. This sort of behaviour is sufficiently unlike normal French "service" to be worthy of note. Pascal invited me into the workshop to show me what he'd done and to ask how I wanted it finished off. He'd started by joining the wires that were flagged white and yellow with bits of tape, to see if that was effectively the solution, and it was, alarm out of circuit and everything else functioning, I've even still got the dashboard LED flashing as if there was an alarm. he then chopped the remaining wires and I ceremoniously removed the alarm unit, still weeping and clicking ( it has an internal battery) to the workshop bin. Pascal then soldered the connections he'd made, grouped and insulated the loose wires and secured the whole lot together. Good job jobbed! Thank you to all those who made useful and / or helpful comments, cos it was only really because of what I learnt that I was able to push them in the right direction and get the neccessary information out of datatool.

  40. Now I can pedal without discomfort (apart from the seat) I thought I had better get back out on the pushbike. Left it all day, went out for a nice quiet evening ride. Now I've got sweat stinging my contact lenses, you can't win. This is the Braintree Tree of Justice. At least I think it is, it has a noose on the branch furthest away from me.
