Just to say Hello from Oxfordshire

Post by Matador » Sun Mar 15, 2015 1:29 pm

Hi, Just had the ABR details passed on by a friend. I used the name Matador as it was my last trail bike (Bultaco), which gives a clue to my age although my 1st trail bike was a BSA 500 BB Goldie. I always enjoyed off-road riding more than road, so when my son wanted to buy a big bike I strongly recommended a XT660R, so I could buy it off him when he wanted a bigger bike 3 years ago. It took a while to get back into biking but really enjoy it, I have made a lot of modifications to the XTR for trail riding, plus a TTR250 when the going gets slippery and an old 350 Matchless for pop-popping around the countryside in the Summer. I'm a member of the TRF and often ride in the Wilts group, building up a knowledge of the area. Also Oxfordshire, Northants & Gloucester & hopefully a bit further afield later in the year. Hopefully I will meet up with a few members as the year goes on.

I will get my son to put some pictures of my Matchless up at the weekend. It's not very exciting, I just wanted an old bike for VMCC runs and an old 'Jampot'350 single fitted the bill. I rebuilt it last winter down to component level and it's proven reliable. On adventure riding terms it's amazing how far some members of the AJS/Matchless club will ride these old bikes.
