Re: Not really a ride report as such

Thanks for the write up. My first venture on a green lane, was on my own, on my trusty R80g/s. I'd never ridden off road apart from across a campsite. I found a byway and thought I'd give it a go.

Re: Officially old?

My Mrs regularly tells me I’m too old for riding motorbikes.

Re: Not really a ride report as such
