She's fixed now!! However while she was in the garage some scrap yard thieving types have knicked my touratech ali panniers (£665 to replace, keyed to ignition)out of my back yard. So I'll have to knock up something in the workshop to replace them (more gutted about my stickers than the panniers to be honest).

See image here of why my missus (£1600 repair bill) said I'm not allowed to play off road (that can't mean greenlanes though right?) anymore.

S'cuse me folks. A little favour here please (off topic). I was at the last Midlands rally on my newly built Africa Twin outfit. Due to the camber of the fields and the fact I'm a bit new to sidecars I never got to ride the whole track.

Myself and a couple of mates are thinking of going down to the farm again soon for a weekend,and I was wondering if anyone took any photo's of the track ? We'd like to know if any parts of it are really challenging, trials or motocross wise ? All I got to see last time was the first field !!!

Many thanks in advance,Soho.

There are plenty of challenging areas. Nothing motocross, but plenty of trials and its even harder at this time of year. I will try and find some pics for you.

There is no laid out track you just go where you dare.

Hi mate,
First and most important, hows the shoulder coming on?
Second, I think that there should be lots of pictures on here www.adventurebikerider.com/forum/67-abr-...y-19th-21st-aug.html in lieu of what some of the others have in their albums.
The end of the road is the start of the fun

Thanks Mark, I had another operation before Xmas which although not perfect has given a little more rotation.Still got all the metal work in there but I'm just itchin' to have a go riding a solo again ! Which is why we thought of going back to the farm. My mate is an Enduro expert (25th in the Whitley Boxing day Enduro) the other two aren't bad either. So they can race there nuts off whilst I just try and stay upright on the bike (dommie)

Catch you somewhere soon I hope ? Nick.

(obviously it's them who need a challenging course,for me the challenge will be to see if I can still hold a bike upright ? )

Nick,
Very pleased to hear it mate.
Every day in every way and all that.....
Hope you enjoy your solo mission (Oooh matron)

BTW, we are having another Rally similar to last years Banham do, here www.adventurebikerider.com/events-2/abr-...ng-around-rally.html
It looks like it'll be a goodun, with decent off road through the forest etc.
It would be good to see you there.
