Beta bum boys dirty night out

Recommended Posts

My mate phoned tonight as i got home from work asking if i fancied a ride out on the Beta's, at first i wasn't to keen but remembered i am working away next week and probably the week after so wont get a chance for a while, it was just a local run on the mountains i haven't ridden in years

Made our way up to what is locally called the tump to have a play which is this old coal tip

There was a few miles of horrible rutted tracks to get there had a little play on the hill climbs certainly feeling my age now i used to fly up these like they weren't there many years ago on real crap bikes just about cutting it on the new one LOL

Me having a go

 

And my mate fucking show off LOL

I think my mate has a video of me at the top of this looking down. i didn't start recording soon enough when he went up i failed on the first attempt but ok on the second 

Some fantastic views from the top

From here we moved onto our furthest point from home through lots of deep water and ruts no photos of those bits

started heading back from here on the opposite side of the valley

Stopped here for a photo the clouds were rolling in over the valleys in the distance with the sun going down the photo doesn't do it justice phone couldn't cope with the sun

We thought we better get a move on as the sun was going down and we were having trouble navigating because they have built a lot of access roads for the wind turbines since the last time i was here which have dead ends on them so after turning around a few times we decided to cut across country to get to where we wanted to go but came across a wire strung about 3ft off the floor, without thinking i grabs hold of it to lift it up to ride under its a bloody electric fence fuck they hurt LOL anyhow we gets to where we wanted to be 

The ground was as boggy as i remember and my mate gets a little stuck he says its not going anywhere

 I said give it some gas but he was right it wasn't going anywhere (look away now Pete) LOL

took us about half hour to free it the ground just didn't want to give it up

Our route was basically this very little tarmac

This was my second attempt video just doesn't show how steep and loose this is, looks bloody flat LOL

 

Looks like I could ride up there on my GS with road tires and luggage on, like it always does!
