Great!! The experience will do him good :thumbup:

Update on my cylinder head..after not being able to get in touch with Zoom on Saturday, I phoned up this morning, "yes we got the cylinder and we just cleaning it now" :problem: not exactly what I wanted to hear.


My typing gets interrupted by phone call..its Zoom on the phone..."we finished and it will be in the post first thing tomorrow" :thumbup: Happy with that and the bill was a lot less than expected, 5 valves seats re-cut, new valve seals and collects, new valves lapped in and shimmed for £98 :D :thumbup:

Re: Natterjack!!

Took Si and I 2 hours to walk the mx test and the cross country test both look awesome..some of the jumps on the mx test are massive...not even going to attempt them :lol: CC test has a tricky series of logs with small gaps, tyres and rocky section I know I'm going to fall off :oops:

Really looking forward to it but my legs are already done in from the walk :roll: :mrgreen:

Re: Natterjack!!

I bloody enjoyed it!! day 1 I was riding with Si and was going flat out just to keep him amused :thumbup: when he did get bored and pissed off, I was riding with some Welsh bloke on my minute pushing each other along. Was riding well on the checks but fell of in all 5 special test :lol:
Started to cramp up badly by the last couple of checks and by the end of the day didn't have the strength to push the bike in the park firme :(

I did not even think I was going to last that long today but loosened up a little and kept plugin away ..until the mousse broke up :wtf: ...nothing was going to stop me from finishing though...one happy rider here :thumbup:

Oh and I went faster on the tests on day 2 and never fell off?? :wtf: :lol:

Re: Natterjack!!

I was watching that video and thought to myself thats Manny but I couldn't make out the number so couldn't check. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

CHECK IT OUT EVERYONE!!! :mrgreen:

Hope it's not too bad Rich, I have torn ankle ligaments years and years ago playing American football. OUCH!
Get well soon.
