You were saying? No speeding tickets though.

Yeah, well, if i had a light trialbike and/or would not be self employed I would drive in snow as well...
Truth is, my adventure is allready way out of budget, so I don't feel like wrecking it, and if I break an arm or leg I could probably sell the adventure to cover employee costs untill I recover...

This is so not true! Ilse had one and I savoured two, making each one last for the intended 10 minutes. Still, the bag was already half empty by the time we got home...

On a different note, you may want to register your interest on the actual thread Clogfest 2013 - Wiltshire, UK to make it easier for Possu to keep track of potential participants. Cheers.

There was no chance of you getting a ticket on the tyres fitted to your 610, me and Ian must have pushed you most of the way.

I could get a ticket for holding up traffic.

Ok guys, as Possy said, if you want to know more about Wiltshire in summer, in het Nederlands, PM me.

Rando-Moto.

A great pity because the event I did join was a very beautiful ride. To complete the rando-moto-story : the founder had invented the idea to ask "ride" money for the first three (i think) events, his idea was that the "really motivated" people would be glad to pay for it. I don't know if this rule still exists. But be prepared, I would say.

They say a motorcycle goes to whatever you are watching.... I guess I saw a nice piece of barbed wire...

Don't know what I saw here, but suddenly I was lying flat on my belly in front of the bike... last thing I remember was hitting the mirror with my knee.

I had a nice crash on the tarmac last week, had to replace handlebar and handguards. An idiotic car tought it was needed to stop his car suddenly in a blind corner on a bridge... He said he wanted to talk to his friens who were walking along the road...
Grrrr
