Llandrindod Wells, is harder and often referred to as "Clang-ding-dong-bells" instead by cheeky Englishmen  :033:

The idle locals miss out the middle & end bits & call it Hlandod.

Haha, somebody had to come & annoy ya. Been down with the Man-flu since Sat before last, picked it up at the "Last Condom rally" down Mersea island.

Only picked the T800 up yesterday, 'cos of feeling shoite. By 'eck 'tis easy bike to ride, just as well I s'pose.

I had mine for 3 years and 42,000 miles, but had the suspension reworked by Maxton's.

Torn at the moment between another T800 XR, or an Exploder XR, possibly new, but perhaps another nearly new like the Sport I killed, depends what's about when the leg's working properly and free of scaffolding  :038:

We're all off to this unpronounceable place tomorrow for what is quaintly called a mini-meet, we tend to have a very well attended mega-meet in May and the mini in Sept, should be another good turn out, even this late in the year  :028:

Tiko gave me a fair deal on this XRx. I'll keep an eye on the meets when I can shake off this dreaded Man-flu. Any planned rides get posted up?
Several of my chums have the Explorer, not for me, 'tis a gurt heavy lump, all dropped them, but then we've all dropped the TS's at standstill. Keeping the TS for now, we'll see.

We used to do one every month, Cheshire/ Derbyshire/ Leicestershire, but they fizzled out, maybe next spring ?

Ok thanks for that. I got another rally to go to next w/e, down Upton on Severn, getting a tad nippy for this camping.
