Howdy dudes

Post by special one » Mon Oct 10, 2011 4:55 pm

Hi dudes,
Been directed this way by a mate who's a member (-Ralph-).

Names Phil, I live in Brum, 41 at the end of the month and ive got an almost standard 04 DRZ400s which ive owned since Feb 2010.
Ive got a 2010 Triumph sprint ST as my road bike and just spent 10 days in France riding some amazing roads.

I love my DRZ, its a great laugh to ride, i ride it more on the road tbh as havent done much green laning this year for one reason or another.
I do like off roading but am really crap at it lol.
When funds allow im going to be putting the FCR 39mm carb on it as it supposed to respond really well to this along with the 3x3 airbox mod.

Im really got an interest in this adventure lark atm, enjoyed reading a few trip reports from various sources, im defo gonna get an adventure type bike next when im bored with the sprint.
Thats it for now i guess

and welcome to you. It's ok, I'm rubbish off road and feel wonderfully comfortable admitting it!

For me its not about flat out, go as fast as you can, i just enjoy having a laugh and trying to negotiate terrain i wouldnt normally attempt.

Ill post up some vids of mine and ralphs that we took on some lanes in our neck of the woods, just dont expect any simon pavey type skills lol

This is the vid where a local threw a foot pump into my path, only my supreme (joke) riding skills avoided a collision.
