Well at last I have a little bike and a van to start trail riding.
I bought a CRF 230 as I am a short legged novice, I've been out a few times but just around a dissused quarry. Scotland's a bit of a nightmare for trailriding, I've been threatened once with being shot, and shouted at once too...I used to have a montessa trials bike and respect others on the trails but to no avail....sick of the confrontation and I know it will soon lead to me being arrested
Trying my best not to let these experiences put me off I am looking for some trail riding areas (and groups to join with)as close to the border as possible where I can legally ride. My plan is to head to closest routes for a ride on the bike and camp in my van overnight, heading back home the following day.
Would I be best getting my bike road legal (I've been riding road bikes for years so no probs with licence) and if so which tyres would you guys recommend I go for?
Also which group would I be best joining with regards to my location?
Thanks guys look forward to getting out there, need the excercise if nowt else!
