None of us are big on photo taking etc so don't have many, but this was the week-end just gone where we stopped for lunch.
And this vid doesn't star any of us in it, but thought it was worth posting as it made me laugh a lot- he's an Irish Bike Vlogger, does lots of on road stuff, but off-road definitely not his forte, sort of like Father Ted tries off-roading
I've been toying with a 300 smoker (KTM, Berg or Husky , either would do) for years, rode a carbed Berg TE300 a few years back , cracking bike.
I'd definitely have one if I was going to get racey and do any enduros, and I've nearly bought one on two occasions now but just stopped short- I've had the trusty old 525 so long it is literally like the comfiest old pair of slippers ever for me now, it goes anywhere so easy, never lets me down , just refuses to die, and if I'm honest, is perfect for what I want it for
When it eventually does die though, we shall see...

Dirty is my middle name......not quite.
Love it though, nothing better than doing a bit of bush bashin out in the scrub.
Dirt bikes are my thing.
At 37 yrs old now I think I've owned more than a couple dozen chook chasers to date.
See if I can find some pics for ya

Also 2 stroke Tommy (which has nothing to do with motorcycles)
And 10 inch Tommy (I think they were confusing metric with imperial)
Pretty much why I stopped. Last time out, laid in a corn field thinking I've done my collarbone after another display of ineptness saw me catapulted off after dropping the front wheel into a rut. I did try a trials bike for a couple of years but, ambition and stupidity overcoming skill level, I managed to have several visits to A&E and a new set of scars.
It was also frustrating as I didn't have the time to ride enough to get to the level I wanted to.
