    If I had a photo of it I’d buy that and just put the photo up there

    I think you're overestimating LFGSS's google rankings!

    There was a bit of graffiti in Welwyn (I grew up nearby) that used to fascinate me as a kid. It was on a footbridge going over the road and it said ‘JOHN RUMPED THE FLYING HOP’ in big white letters. I just had a google to see if I could find any info about it and I found a Honda forum with some asking about it, and someone else replying with a link... to a post from me, years ago, asking about it on a record collecting forum. So it turns out I am the internet ‘JOHN RUMPED THE FLYING HOP’ expert, in case anyone is in need of my services.

    At the moment I’m riding at either Ashton Court or Leigh Woods. Im not familiar enough with the terminology but I guess it’s fairly hard packed trails with a bit of rockiness here and there? I’d love to get some more varied off-road riding in at some point but at the moment free time is like gold dust!

    main fella's accint

    Took my wife and I most of the first episode to work out what the accent was even supposed to be.

    The bit with the laser baby (that's vague enough to avoid spoilage right?) made us both kind of laugh and be horrified simultaneously. Proper wtf!

    my thoughts exactly. If I 100% agreed with pedrito, I'd still be baffled by the way they've gone about this.

    It feels more like a situation where the appropriate response is 'I don't agree with the way BRP has gone about this so if I'm ever in a similar situation, I will do things differently'.

    Oh, so you’re making fun of my accent as well are you?!

    I think meaty lugs are going to help - especially on the way out of summer, as we are. I’m not so fussed about rolling speed as my technical skill is a bit behind how fast I can make the bike go at the moment.

    If I got something knobblier like a minion, so I need to size up then? A mate has minions - I think They’re 3.5 but they seemed tiny compared to my 2.2 ikons (I assume that’s something to do with the width being made up of more tyre than knobble?).

    I’ve got ikons (2.2) on my 26” bike at the moment and want to put something less useless in corners on the front. What’s a good pairing? Minion? High Roller? And what size?
    I’m new to this off road lark and mainly easing myself round Bristol trails, displaying low to moderate levels of radness.

    I’m vain enough to want to stick with maxxis to avoid logo disparity.
