Nw lurker

Post by Daithelimp » Fri Aug 09, 2019 5:40 pm

Hi from South Wales, currently exploring options for a but of off road adventure but have no clue what I really want so though I'd just soak up all your knowledge for a bit.

I currently ride a watercooled R1200R which is fantastic. I've done a few trips to the Isle of man, one to Scotland and a few around ireland but I fancy combining a bit of off road (nothing mad just a but of green lanes basic trails) and maybe a trip to Nepal in a year or 2 (be flying there not riding).

Got plenty of road and some track experience but apart from doing Dave Thorpe enduro not much off road experience (do loads of mountain biking if that helps 😁).

Anyway, thanks for the add, hopefully ill be getting something soon.
