A Xmas trail ride with a few friends never came to any proper plan , so with today's weather set to be sunny , it was off to Wales for a blast around on me lonesome .....

Thanks for your comments folks , appreciated (y) ... Honestly for me and maybe because I've done that sort of route many times it's not something I'd call epic or awesome ... It could be called stupid when your literally miles from anyone ,anywhere , on your own with zero phone signal .... but then I've never been that sensible (blush)

Took the front calipers off the 748. Cleaned them up and removed the old lines in readiness for the new ones.

Might look at replacing some caliper bolts whilst its apart.

That situation is exactly why I’ve decided against getting the WR450F. If it was just me it’d be ok, but if I get stuck out in the bush there would be no one at home for the kids once they finish school. I do miss trail riding though.

Looks like a good ride mate, I must admit I though it was sand when I first saw it. The only time I see snow is if I drive south for hours and put on some skis!

fitted new clip-ons, QAT, changed rear wheel bearings, cleaned chain, fitted lever guards, bled brakes and fitted some engine protectors.

fairings are away being lacquered so figured i'd have a play with it and give it a clean up.


I've a pair of forks to strip on a ktm off roader tomorrow to strip and service.

Trail riding alone is not something I do very often but I feel safer doing it if I'm more local as there's usually someone about when riding the Peak district , not ideal but sometimes it's the only way to get out .... All them deadly spiders and snakes would put me off riding the Bush not the riding alone ;)

Popped to my local Ktm dealers and bought a rear 17" tube which is another piece in the 'moto conversion .

Im still thinking about changing the 950 sm so called at the Triumph dealers while I was passing as I wanted to try the tiger 800 roadie version for size and sort of ruled it out as I still prefer the XC version for fit .... The 21" front wheel is what puts me off the XC though (facepalm)

Popped around the corner to the Bmw dealers ... I can see a Gs in my future but a lottery win might be needed (wasntme)

Fitted the lap timer, struggling to find a good place for it but managed to use the bolt that holds the tank down to fix the bracket. You can see the extra sensor for lean angle and g force etc.
