Re: Trails around Lambourn Wilts

Oh yes I was forgetting where you come from, the only group to ever keep up with me and actually enjoy the lane of pain in Devon. Ha but dont forget I grew up in Bovey and Steve (Lily) from Cambs grew up in Chudleigh... so the Dartmoor lanes are home really ;-) Another Devon expat here (Hennock way...

Re: Work Case #19 Honda CRF250R MX

I had a brand new (petrol) car of a certain German brand which wouldn't start below 5degC.
