    Nope! Very Happy
    Won't be doing it again until I get a bike that I can touch the ground off either!

    Might be a good event for someone wanting to find more lanes in the Wye Valley though - a KTM 525 would the ideal sort of bike to do in on too Very Happy
    If you fancy it I'd come along and offer support etc

    Section's include Pant Glas steps, Limekiln etc which are hard enough without some old bugger standing there with a clipboard tutting when you put a foot down Very Happy
    Cracking (but hard) day out though, and you get to ride a lot of stuff you normally wouldn't

    A bit more of it - a possible sighting of 'Hondamicky' there too??

    Think I might volunteer for the job of 'old bugger with a clipboard' rather than ride it on the CRF!
    A trials tyre and 5 minutes with an angle grinder on the 525 lockstops and she'd be ideal for the job Very Happy

    It's easer to get a pork chop in a synagogue than a Kim 525 in to the wyegate . They are a very selective bunch .

    That's what I thought ray, but did bump into a guy that knows all about the wyegate & he did say it was open to all bikes nowadays.
    I wont mention his name tho! just in case the regulars decide to hang him lol!
    In saying that, probably a lot easyer on the right bike but it do look like a good day out & do fancy it myself.
