Well I've succumbed. Just bought a crf250. Went for a quick 10 minute blast this morning down my local green lane and bumped into a nutter and great bloke called ginge who proceeded to take me out hooning around mud plugging at ridiculous speeds. I didn't get home for hours and got a bit of stick off the mrs as she thought or maybe hoped I was dead in a ditch somewhere. Anyway I only crashed twice which is quite good by Blomfields standards! I think that Welshpool trip has given me a great winter hobby. I haven't laughed so much in ages but Im not sure I will be able to walk tomorrow!, :-)

Nice one Jim, it's great fun during the winter and even more of a laugh when the Snows deep and hardly anything else can move

good move- hours of really cheap biking fun once you have yr own bike- me and nicki went out last weekend for good trip round bottom of mountains and got her through some much trickier muddy stuff- if you ever fancy coming over this way again with it we'll find some good places to go

That would be awesome miles. Will def take you up on that. I know what you mean about cheap. Had half a day out riding and got fuel, bacon butty and a jet wash with change out of a tenner! Let me know when suits you and I will come down your way

Def all chip in for a bike for Andy just for giggles, this time though we have to strap a couple of cameras to him so we can relive the **** taking moments over and over!

Mine was quite cheap Matt. 04 plate 1750 ready to roll. The 450cc bikes youve got your eye on seem to be about the same sort of money as the 250s. Just get one, wrap it and put it under the Xmas tree and look really surprised when you open it!
