    OK, delivery at 0830hrs, Barrie is kindly dropping it to me at the studios.

    I will go and test it out on the back area then open to a few 'light' suggestions on Saturday???

    So...

    The day went like this.

    Meet up, chat a bit with Pete, get on the road and hit the first trail.

    30mins up the hill, massive high side off the top of a hill and let the bike go in a triple backflip with double twist.

    Pete did not have the GoPro.

    7 spokes broken, back down to Pete's for a new wheel at Pete's and then back up the hill.

    Back up the hill and see the splendour of S Wales.

    Hill, valley, train tunnels, water (lots of) and general mud.

    You know when they say - "off the forecourt and you lose a £1K"

    Well anyone want a 2 stroke beta RR300 with 5 hours on the clock for £3k give me a call.

    Utterly brilliant day and look forward to a few more.

    It is there to enjoy, hope it lasts the 3 years before I can afford another one.
