Well, Yesterday was a lovely bright day here in the Forest of Dean,perfect for the Monsters Maiden vouage,however I was working ,so I went today, the wettest day of December, if not the year !!!!
Venue was the local trail centre in case anything fell off ! it didn't had a great run, the handling is perfect,I really did feel like Tomac as I hammered the tech sections and over taking the Trail centre full sussers gave me great joy 8).It felt very quick and responsive,couldn't fault it at all.The last couple of technical sections ,the brakes started to fade as the new cables stretched , so much so that I couldn't shed any speed :evil: ,still point the Monster where I needed it and it was inch perfect :D

Very pleased with it,nothing i would do different, thanks to Dave getting a few pics.
Problem is I'm going to have to try really hard not to pull the Monster out every ride :oops: it's certainly no garage queen !

    To be fair without sounding like I am kissing arse , The photos were taken around the skills area as it was peeing down and I didnt bring a big enough bag to take it up on the trail (not that I really wanted to in the conditions) but we went up and did the blue/red trail and James hammered it (this trail is aimed at the weekend warriors with 10" bouncers :lol:) :shock: Fair play I thought

    Here is my fav pic!!
