    Just though I'd start a blog up showing the places I get to on my wr rather than spamming elsewhere.

    Since the hill is the tallest in place in surrounding 25km area you can normally get a real good view from it but the weather was terrible and I couldn't real see much :'( (grid: 57.386681, -2.400188 )

    Lost my crash virginity today :(

    The rear end slid out whilst I was coming out of a corner doing 40mph and I tried to counteract it by steering the other way but the front end tucked and I highsided. The bike and I slid about 50m down the road (which was wet and muddy) before coming to a stop on the verge. Fortunately the bike has sustained very minor damage:

    Luckily it was only 1 1/2 miles down the road and the bike started up fine after I picked it up.
     

  7. Oh no:(
    How are you doing?

    I'm pretty much OK, I only have a bruise on my hip but other than that I'm fine. My gear held up very well; my jacket only has a small mark on it, my gloves are fine, my mx boots only have a few small marks and the trousers are scratched but not torn.

    Thank's for asking! :)
     

  9. Good to hear :)
    Smart to wear riding gear, always do that myself

    So decided to go to a pretty unique spot today, the abandoned Tarlair swimming pool which was built way back in 1931 (57.6705029,-2.4720687).

    So I decided that I finally had enough with my phones crappy camera and decided to buy something a littl better, a Nikon D3300! IMAG0489.jpg
    Needless to say the picture quality should now be 100x better and I'll probably start taking even more pictures too :) Here's a few examples of the cameras quality (I've had to downscale them to 1/8 resolution in order to upload them):
