Had some fun up on the North Downs yesterday thanks to my employers closing for the day




Climbed one Byway that got so narrow with a high bank one side and drop-off the other, the only way I could turn the bike without risking losing it over the edge was to lay it down and drag it round 180 degrees by the front wheel.

Times like this I wish I had a Serow !

Looks like a nice day out but your method of making a U turn is a bit drastic. I would have dismounted and walked it through a 9 point turn.

I did try, that pic doesn't really do it justice.

I went for the safest and quickest option in the end.The claggy mud underneath the snow was a bit slippery + long heavy bike = mucho sweato.

Found a better pic

Found a name I recognise here.

Got a '08 Triumph Scrambler, but very new to riding off road. I used to do 4x4 trials but thats another story. Keep me posted of any more local meets.

AFAIK they've been Byway for ages. Certainly since I moved to this area. They're only quite short and probably not worth the ride over from Dorking. However, if you do have a crack, be warned, the one just to the east of Ham Street can be rather snotty.

Stella? Not dreaming mate, going for sure but we haven't booked anything yet.

Hi Max
Got your wheels on yet?
Plenty of scope for road ride in Sussex / Kent if your up for it soon, goes for any body else following this thread. Watch out for a trail ride as soon as pig is back in one piece. "S" is going well though
