Hi all,
I'm new here!!
All things going well i'll be swapping my r1200rt for a r1150gs in the next couple of weeks. I really want to get muddy!
Anyone have any good places to go, and maybe give me some tips on off road riding!?

Tips....try a good few hard-pack farm type lanes in the dry with suitable tyres before you attempt mud (if you've no off road experience) after that progress onto same when wet and get the feel of your moto. Straight onto mud and you'll be skkkundered

Me: Honesty.

The Suit: Honesty? I don't think honesty could be construed as a weakness.

Me: I don't give a f**k what you think.
