Greetings to all you guys in the UK
I am planning a trip to the UK next spring (center'd from Scotland but trips all over) Can anyone tell me of places to hire a WR for a week or 2?, I have been thinking of a WR instead of a car.

Cheers! :thumbsup:

Any of you UK fellers from Ipswich over in suffolk county? Just a wonderin. I was born there but my parents left England when I was a wee lad at the age of 1 year old. Technically I'm a Brit but now am American. I don't remeber England at all but plan on returning to visit my roots and see where I was born. Hopefully I'll be able to visit sometime next year. I'll have to definately check out the dirtbikin' over there.

AxemanLv for WR hire in the UK try http://www.clewsleisure.com/

Simch, yes the plan is to register the WR for the road, I'll let you know how I get on
Did 30miles round a local track at the weekend with the bike totally standard, gonna to a few more and then de-restrict
Oh, by the way, Yamaha put engine oil in the motor at the factory, I thought it was empty and put more in only to find that when I checked the level oil was flowing out of the dipstick port...doh!

I've not ridden Eynsham, I hear it's a fairly tight MX track?
What's at Towcester then?
Some guys at the keep biking forum go to Hemel a lot
Ashdowns good for a blast,
Trail riding bores me lately, there's too many moaning minnies about!

I am planning to stay in Fort William, but open to suggestions. My family are originaly from that area.
I thought it would be better to hire a WR type bike, then a car. I just want to explore on my own and not with a tour group.

That would be great, as I'm in the early stages of planning.
I want to travel around March/April.

Thanks! :thumbsup:

BTW... Do you do a lot of off-roading in the Highlands?

I guess it a bit different here,there are no specific riding areas that i know off,i guess most folks up here depend on the estate owners not tellin them to get of the hills,or the forestry commision not chasin after them!but aslong as you show courtesy and common sense i think most folk get along ok!,as for the nevis range and glen-coe i dunno what there policy is on trail riding,but there are plenty enduro bike down that way so i guess it not too strict,march/april can really depend on the weather down that way!,maybe you wanna tour the place on a big trail bike rather than just go up the hills?,i`m not sure just what your plan is matty?,but you are most welcome to send me a pm and i will be glad to help you with any info you may need? :thumbsup:

Any way its good to get a uk take on things
