Didn't get too wet ! Another great day on the Plain - good company & an excellent route

Tramp, thank you once again for leading, you are one of the unsung heroes of this site

Roll on next month, when we get to do it all again

Just got back myself and it was raining till i got to Marlborough and had a brown trouser moment overtaking on what must have been diesel. Apart from that all was good. Cheers again Russ. Great day out. Will post some pics and videos later. Missed your first 'off' Russ but caught the second 'rest' your bike needed!! :lol:

You missed all the fun those of you that departed slightly earlier than the rest of us. All I will say is out of the four of us left, one didn't make it. Pics and vids to follow ;-)

As stated , a great day had - many thanks Russ!

I can't believe how much cack the bike is caked in , courtesy of Scottoiler.

I look forward to the official report on the 'off'!

Hat off to Davsato on those tyres, as for ACP , that KTM is a monster and just seems to trample over wherever you point it.
