Looks like a great day out! Tinky is back into it. Goosefeather and I might have a day out on Friday if the rain holds off!

Another training day for Tinky.. practice makes perfect ..







Quicksand Valley.. has been worst





20 year old guy on CRF 450.. " Is there another way around ??" Sorry mate..

Tinky tells him.. " Dont be a scared.. your only half our age "



Easy for her.. someone is going to get the short straw..





A few crashes along the way...



Mick drags me to Fridge Hill..



Not going to happen this time..poor excuse



Mick's story is a tad different.. just hear lots of 2 stroke noises from the top..

Looks like some pretty cool tracks up there mick!
Wonder how the pig would do, might be starting to get out of its depth a little...

Anyone planning a level 2-3-4 ride anytime soon?

Thanks MickD, I'm on call for this weekend so cant really make it, am in need of a new set of rubber for the dirt as the current ones are ripped to shreds after the cape. Will be a while before the budget allows it I think

I am keen to have a wander around up there and get some basic bearings

A few random pics and thanks MickD for your time today.. much appreciated.





Congratulations on the new toy Tinky. You must be over the moon to be back on the tracks.

Hope you, Pete and your little family have all been keeping well.

I head into hospital tomorrow for more bloody back surgery but this year will not be as bad as last year for surgery's.

I plan to hit the tracks in about one months time to start making use of these things I have in my garage called bikes.

Would be great to catch up with you and Pete and a few of the crew for a blat in the near future. I will have to come and mix it up a bit with me CRF.

Is that a brand new pair of Crossfire's I see there. I love mine.

Take care guys and see you on the tracks during 2012.

Johnnie

Hey Johnnie.. I hope all goes well for you !! All good on the home front.. Just drop me a line if you ever want to come out.. we are basically out every weekend. Re Tinky's bike.. the 2 stroke has made a big difference for her... and as for the Crossfire's.. brilliant boots .
