    Hi! Just moved to swansea from finland!

    Hello hello!

    Just moved back to swansea after having lived in finland for the last 1o years. Trust me...its warm here.

    I got into motorcross while i was out there as I was spoilt by the fact that there was at least 5 tracks within 20 minutes of my house including one indoor one!

    Of course there seems to be a lack of tracks in the swansea area so I thought I´d try my hand at some green lane and maybe some very very low level hare and hounds races.

    I am 34 years old 17 stone and my long suffering bike for the last couple of years has been a ktm xc 150 2 smoke. I have to say i love the bike because it weighs next to nowt and the power from it is amazing! If someone rides it for the first time, they all think its a 250.

    But yesterday I picked up my new steed... a 2009 gas gas ec300. And I am not disappointed! Lovely to ride, light and very quick and stinks of blue smoke! I bought this cos its road registered so will allow me to do some green lane riding.

    Obviously cos I´m new to green lane riding in the area I shall be checking the posts for places to ride and any advice is greatly recieved. Also if anyone is going and wouldn´t mind a group clown to laugh at...let me know, i´d be happy to oblige!

    I could try and stick some pics of my bikes up...if i manage to suss out how to do it.

    Anyway...great site and I look forward to a bit o banter!
