  • So, now you’re hooked? Not sorry at all!

    The best part is going 20mph and it's terrifying, as opposed to finding yourself doing 120mph in the pursuit of excitement. Best of luck firing up the bikes when the time comes. Out of interest do you still have the Sherco?

  • The best part is going 20mph and it's terrifying

    Beware that soon you’ll be going 40 before it’s terrifying, until you stack it at 30 and then all of a sudden 15mph is terrifying again. Ha!

    Yep, I do still have the Sherco. I stopped using it while my crash leg healed, and then only maybe once before the Camino to avoid additional injuries pre-trip.

    As I remember, I need to pull the carb and give it a clean as well as check the plug, check the air filter, and stop being a cheapskate and buy new clutch fluid as well. I have no idea what I’m doing both on the bike and in the shed, so it’s a pleasure the thing still kicks over.

    The little ditch by the house was getting boring, and then the weather turned and it flooded with water and became so slippery I was totally out of my depth all over again.

  • Think I mentioned but did hit 40mph on a greenlane once and felt like I was momentarily leading the Dakar. Terrifying and quickly knocked it back to a heady 20. Remember us talking about the practicalities of riding a trials bike on the road a while back, saw this and made me smile.
