    Yes... only one - the Church of the Seventh Day ADVenturists - the Lödeköping branch of the KrusTy Munts parish... :ksteve

    ... the - other - church (you allude to) that I posted earlier, was of interest (I thought) as it had been inundated and exumed (several times) from the surrounding sand dunes shifting... during its 400 + years as a place of worship. :1drink

    Nice ride & pics Troy, although as I was scrolling through them I was worried we'd have to endure a pic of you in lycra.

    That would be too much artificial swedener...

    On closer inspection of the label Dorthe... you are right! A good Dane knows her green bottles... rest assured - there was the odd Tuburg grön (and guld)... and a good deal of the local Svaneke - to wash down the local seafood delacacies... :1drink Awesome place. :clap

    nah... I clean the chain and gears with brake cleaner, when they are grubby... then a real light spray down with some CRC 556 or WD40 when dry...

    The Revinge FMCK x-country track opened on Saturday, after this years Swedish summer (it's been astonishingly hot, dry year - the military - that control the land - delayed the "premier" date by two weeks - due to fire risk).

    In any case, Camster had his first taste of a "big bike" on the x-country lay out... punting a 350SXFc around for the day... It sure was great to be out there mucking about out on the grasstrack test together again.
