I'm up in Scotland with some killer trails on my doorstep.
My mate is deivering my WR to me next week, so have to make do with the TTR for now.
Welcome to come up and have a try at the Sidlaw Hills, but be warned, there is a bit of snow still up there.

Keep it between the hedges!

i'm only 6/7 miles from wildtracks (chippenham) but i've put my name down for rugby that day.

i ride for free up at thetford which is just another 12 miles up the A11. there, i wander through to a fire break & do my testing.

i've joined a group called or something or other. they are about green laning.

i'm getting a group up for easter sunday/monday.

I am in Bristol, bored as bike is stuck in the garage!!
Here's hoping that this F&M clears soon!!!

So far F&M has not hit us up here in Scotland, but the snow has. Most of the roads are closed round here just now, but that shouldn't be a problem for the bike...Trouble is, my WR is down in Wantage at my mates house, and he can't get it to me until next week now!!!!
Looks like I'll have to stick with TTR and keep off the farm land access for now.

As you're from that area, do you know if they still practice at Mildenhall?

And are you allowed to ride anyhwere in Thetford forest, or is it only certain areas?

there is one long trail called peddars way between thetford & snetterton. it goes all the way up to kings lynn. there are a few trails but you aren't allowed in that much, given how huge it is.

mildenhall is still being used
call 01638 718667 for more info

the area i use is very sandy, like swamp in parts. you go whereever you like. but to be fair the MX boys have laid out a nice circuit at the moment.

i shouldn't go where i do.

headlight yes, battery; don't bother.
use bullshit when in trouble.

Hi everyone,
New boy here, I am from deepest Dorset, now heres a thought, are any of you guys up for a trip to the isle of man during TT fortnight
They have superb tracks over there :D and plenty of bike stuff going on that two weeks,
Beach races , moto x and even an enduro on the last weekend :). If anyone's interested drop us a line and we'll meet up , I have been for the last 11 years so know the tracks pretty well. Cheers for now

as the welsh would say; a man after my own heart!

i took the WR to the Manx GP in sept & rode the trails there for the first time, loved it!

i get the same week off each year (week 6 of the hols) & because i've been going since 1982 find myself going back every year to see my roadrace chums.

how many people can claim to slotting a CBR600 engine in at midnight, riding a trail over the island to get to the grandstand & be in someone's pit crew the next morning!

love the place, wouldn't want to live there mind, but love the place.

Has anyone considered starting a WR owners club over here? might be fun!
