Just got back from my first TRF ride, brilliant fun even though I had a bleddy puncture on the first lane! cry Thanks to Martin for being the lead man of our group & gratitude again to him for helping me sort the puncture a long with Chris, Richard & John. Richard even supplied a tube, what a gent! I'll make sure that I'm a little better equipped next time. smile Hope to get muddy again with you soon so until then Happy New Year to you all. biggrin

No worries mate and your gent comment is reciprocated for helping me move the immovable TTR and keeping an eye on my novice ability's. Tyres next I think and attacking it with a anglegrinder to loose weight. Rich.

brilliant fun, how was the second section?

Fairly straightforward really, we did a few of the morning lanes the other way with, as far as I could tell, one or two fresh ones too. With you on the weight thing, the old DRZ is a bit of a handful in the nadgery stuff. After you with the grinder! biggrin

Great ride out and massive thanks to Dan for stepping up to lead and Martin for getting roped in again . Both much appreciated by everyone I'm sure .
Huge turnout but no real issues and 80 odd miles covered . A few lanes I haven't done for years and some that are totally different done backwards.
Bike all clean and ready for our next adventure. Maybe Bristol with Ian ?

Seconded, big thank you to all the organisers and those who helped me. I was on the blue TTR250
I need to sort my tyres as the front was next to useless and the pressure in the MT43 on the rear was being lowered during sections and ended up to be 8psi but still very little grip.
I noticed many of you were running MT43s and had similar issues so was it just the unusual muddy conditions?
What front tyre would you recommend.
Thanks Richard

Michelin comp 6 on the front or a Michelin comp 4

Comp 4 front for me

Look at tubliss for the rear, you can run super low pressure without fear of creep
