Not that I don't like reading posts from you guys in the US or Oz, (especially seeing where you get to ride!!), but I wondered how many UK members with WRs are about? Post here if you are!

Ever organise a rideout? :thumbsup:

'04 Brand New Waiting for Registration. Gonna use it for commuting in london, blasting round my mates farm in wales and for greenlaning once i get to know it better. Used it for 4 days off roading so far.

While we are all here, has anyone in the UK been able to find some decent road going wheels for the stock rims?

Between geneva and lausanne.
Great riding but illegal most places, so I usually muddy up my numberplate!!
Having been stopped once by the local forest guard I tend now to ride in France which is much more open and just 2 minutes away. Drop me a Pm if you land near to Geneva.

Its the TBM sponsored enduro lasting 12 hours (hence the dawn to dusk name) in the breacon beacons in south wales, and it's on this weekend.

Simch, are you a crosser/enduro man only, or are you up for a bit of green laning. There is a fair few lanes north and west of brackley that make a good day out?

electron, I now run a 165 main jet, the updated needle that comes with the bike and an extra turn on the fuel pilot screw. Richens it up well, and is significantly more sprightly.
