This could go in the thread 'my other passion' but its definitely motorcycle related. Every now and then I enter an enduro proper to remind myself how old I'm getting and this weekend I managed to con about eight others into it. It was held on the Materley estate near Winchester by Track n Trail and is one of the best tracks I have ridden, really varied. A few pics taken by my luverly wife: me waving nervously
pit stop.
small bump
and a social after with a bbq and lots of version of wild camping
apologies if this is not exactly ABR territory but doing this stuff and stretching my boundaries has rekindled my passion for bikes more than the Sunday afternoon blasts which I had been partaking of.
The secret of a long life is knowing when its time to go.

This thread is relevant, I'll be 49 end of this month. Just bought a bike to have a bash at the very same thing, I literally cant wait to get going and have a few events under my belt. Bit worried about my level of fitness, do members reading this who compete train at all..??

Well done mate, good to get to do the odd event, gets the blood pumping

Nice one Herman,
I went along to an Enduro with a few mates today to see what its like.
After watching I think I'm going to join the Cotwolds enduro club and have a go, as it looks a lot more civilized than motocross.

Well done Herman . T7T organise good events.
Did one of theirs 4 or so years ago at kings Hill with the dreaded river crossings
"The trails of the world be countless, and most of the trails be tried.
You tread on the heels of many, till you come where the ways divide.
And one lies safe in the sunlight, and the other is dreary and wan, Yet you look aslant at the Lone Trail, and the Lone Trail lures you on....
....Bid good-bye to sweetheart, bid goodbye to friend, The Lone Trail, the Lone Trail, follow to the end.
Tarry not, and fear not, chosen of the true;
Lover of the Lone Trail, The Lone Trail waits for you"
