Re: Exmoor Rally December 2013

Gah! Just finished packing and had my maps all printed out. Got in the car to run an errand before setting off and it was very clear that I was ill enough that my car driving was severely compromised and that it'd be nigh-on suicidal to embark on such a long ride in this state. Please let me know if...

Re: What have you made for your bike?

Nice farkles people! :) Just a couple of points on the brake snakes; they're not just designed to prevent it bending back in a drop, but also to cut through roots/branches/berm walls that you 'run aground' on, to prevent these things catching the brake (even whilst you've still managed to keep it sh...

Re: Maybe no more tax discs

I posted the following rant on Facebook end of November: (Ceri JC) wonders why on earth are we still required to display tax discs? I am not contesting paying road tax (that's a separate issue), but rather the requirement to display a "physical token" to denote that we've paid. The police run ANPR a...

Re: Exmoor Rally December 2013

Feeling sick as a dog with flu. This happened at Dragon Rally earlier this year. Well, I've got a new bike to break and it's all packed up and fully fuelled, so I'm coming, sick or not. :sick: Will stuff a couple of paper plates and plastic spoons in my bag to eliminate washing up from meals. I'll b...

Re: Exmoor Rally December 2013

Just found out I'm going to have to leave after the rideout on the Saturday. Still around Friday night (aiming to be there about 8.30pm), Saturday morning and the Saturday ride. Please cancel my booking for evening meal on the Saturday and breakfast on the Sunday. Naturally if this is too late notic...

Re: what type of off-road rider are you?

Level 1 – Unconsciously Incompetent This is the rider who doesn’t have a clue - he doesn’t know what he’s doing and doesn’t even know that he doesn’t know. His off-road motor skills are totally dormant. If you remove the off-road and change rider to driver, this describes about 95% of all car drive...

Re: what type of off-road rider are you?

It's amusing, this is clearly cribbed from a recognized psychological "four stages of learning" (the name of which escapes me at the moment). Essentially, a large number of people (both road and dirt riders) fall into group 1. They aren't even good enough to have a qualified opinion on their own rid...

Re: Re: Exmoor Rally December 2013

you sure you have the right date in your diary :laugh: Yes, it is just that I have managed to secure two consecutive weekend passes and am away most of the time in between for work. It even looks like my bike might be in one piece more than a week in advance. I am not normally this organised; packi...
