Not for me,Dalbeattie has put me right off the rock infested trails of the SW 7 stanes. Also that black run I suspect is proper black not Glentress's lame affair.

One thing I've learned is anything DaveDH says is at the very least downright untrue. He says its easy so I read it as very difficult and if he says its difficult (Nevis Range Red) then I just dont go there :roll: A recommendation from him will not persuade me and if he does drag me there he has to ride his dyna ti not his full sus :twisted:

I dont like crashes as I no longer bounce and although ZZ crashes more often that is of little consequence to me :roll:

oh go on you big jessie, you only crash when you are pushing the envelope so bring a padded jiffy bag and you'll be fine.

I resemble that remark. Actually, we do seem to feed off each other and create some sort of crash black hole that follows us around and constantly sucks us back in. I think if we can keep enough distance between us, we should be fine.

And apart from numerous comedy moments that don't really count as crashes, I've actually had a not bad few months. Last serious off was November, prior to that I can't actually remember... :P

Anyway, definitely don't want to miss this one, another 7Stane ticked off.

Actually, I had forgotten about Thrunton... a day of crashes interspersed with occasional riding and far too much walking. Still want to go back, but will be armed with discs, decent tyres and the right SS ratio.

I lost count of my strategic dismounts at Thrunton but ZZ exceeded me on that score :lol:

Was I or was I not vindicated over the GT Black?!?!?! :lol:

In other news, have ordered the wedding ring today, unfortunately there is no such thing as a Shimano XTR ring, nor do Intense, Ringle, Fat or Nicolai produce such a thing. Titanium inlaid with carbon can however, be found...
