That poor old zaskar is not going to like having smuguards being fitted, or being ridden in the sloppy stuff.

I did half the ride today after the rain we have already had and it is bone dry, hopefully we won't have to much rain and the ground will soak up what we do get. The triffids on the other hand will enjoy the rain and grow substantially by Saturday. Here is a picture of one of the baby ones trying it on today.
