Went well, I think  :017:
Some turkey was found, can't remember who won. Numerous people got stuck in the sheep dip. My axle decided it didn't want to axle any more on the M5 on the way home  :icon_biggrin: Haven't looked at it yet. Didn't take any pictures, may find some off FB and put them up over the break.

Building some 44's. Stuck on 35"s for the class so tons would be ground anchors.

Good idea from the honourable member for Merlot & Mushrooms  :icon_super: ...... but what size tyres were you running Jez ?

Way bigger than Dave's class limit of 35's I'll wager  :icon_winkle:

Good luck with the rebuild Dave, is that 44's front & rear ?

Hi Gaz I was running Irok 39.5 …..
So basically a 40 and 13.5 “ wide on an H2 hummer wheel…..did the job well …soft walled tyre that climbed everything and dug effin large holes

So many pay and play sites stopped trailer queens and disallowed anything above 35” so I was screwed….

Apparently Kirton is now invitation only so King CJ mentioned last night…..

Things have changed sadly…..

Hence why I have been doing Enduro in Wales on the KTM….. trails and tracks and byways….that even a prepared Jeep would have difficulty with….maybe?

Also Just back from Spain in the mnts above Malaga….by about 50 miles….
Loads of trails and goat tracks up the sides of mnts…..too steep to walk up but life affirming to ride up….
Still miss the Jeep scene and camaraderie though…..have fun ya Dastards :icon_super:

Great to hear your back from Spain in one piece mate, sounds like a fine adventure  :icon_winkle:

Been trying to get out on the mighty CBR this year, nothing too taxing, about 2 hours at a time top's but have really enjoyed it, its inconceivable to think its 25 years old on Jan 1st !!!

Its being treated to new front discs, new cush drives & having the wheels re painted for the 1st time at some point this winter  :icon_winkle:

Stay safe dastards  :icon_super:

Hmmm  :017:.... been trying to ... boo hoo hoo.  Is that because of its owner of advanced age or the moped?  :hysterical

I haven't stopped commuting on the Yammy since March/April.  Weather was ace last few weeks.  28 y/o and counting  :098:

You stay safe too and happy X-mas to all Dastards.  :greggmo:
