    Wow! I've done most of those tracks, some pretty gnarly stuff in there, huge respect for knocking them off on loaded Groms.

    Cheers

    It took a bit longer than expected... I blame the new bikes for distracting us. Here's Part 2 of our little xmas misadventure!



    Now time to start making some T7 videos... I suspect it will be some time before the ADV Groms go adventuring again, but they will be back!

    I cracked the frame (very tiny) on mine where the rear suspension is bolted on. Was gonna be the same cost to repair the frame as for insurance to write it off. Took the payout and Simon sold his. Used the money towards the T7s. Pity cos they were good bikes ( I miss that slipper clutch) an we would have still been riding them if I hadn’t broken mine.
