I will, once I get the GasGas back on the bench, which is currently full of moped for my daughter with a Morini in the queue waiting for me to do a cambelt!

Resurrecting this old post to remind you that these green lanes are still available to us and so are our Morinis.
The restrictions are a fewer now regarding the dreaded lurgy outbreak and trail riding is not out of the question.
So speak up here if you're ready to join in.

I managed a couple of hours on the Camel again this morning! Lovely day for it too.
We must get out more!

I'm getting out again on Friday 5th in case anyone would like to join in? Taking a mate on his Himalayan for an intro to the local lanes here in South Leicestershire and out towards Coalville. Don't panic though, we will NOT be going into Coalville. :)
Starting from my gaff near Lutterworth approx 09.30 hours.
Gentle stuff, we won't/couldn't be tearing anything up, suitable for road biased trail tyres unless there is a monsoon in the meanwhile.
PM me on here if you want to come along.

No, we got away with it! 109 miles in total for me with around 30 miles of that off tarmac.

DOING IT AGAIN THIS FRIDAY! :wink:

Start near Lutterworth once more. All good fun (not clean) and when my next Kanguro project is ready there is already a shortlist (of 3) waiting to borrow it. This Friday should see 2 Morini and the Himalayan again.

A Kanguro, my Camel and an Enfield Himalayan all turned out today. Going was a bit slippery in places but there was one big clay mud pit. That was hard work and glad there were 3 of us to manhandle the Camel out of the claypit then the Himalayan back upright again. It was so bad they all want to go out again next week. :D
You lot don't know what you're missing!

Mike, start your own Northern version.
I was meant to be doing the Coast to Coast run with the TRF last week, from Scarborough across to Morcambe way. Obviously the virus put paid to that event too.

That all sounds very satisfactory and I'm looking forward to joining you one day. Unfortunately my work skiving opportunities are limited at the moment, but hopefully I'll make it in July. And if the weather stays like this the clay might have dried out by then.

Yes, that would be good, except the nearest lanes are miles away and fairly hard... :( I would happily take my Scrambler down a dry lane, but not a Dales path. Maybe I need a Kanguro, or a Corsaro Cross Country, or better still, a Serow... :)
