    TICK TOCK BISH BASH
    I’m basically crap at off road riding but still want to have a go, my limitations have been an inability & a heavy @. For a number of years I toyed with buying a lighter bike but never put my money where my mouth is. I fell in love with the CCM GP450, nearly buying one at the bike show, but limited back up / spares availability scared me somewhat. For the last year or two my attention has swayed to a Honda CRF 250 Rally, if it’s good enough for Bob One Leg it’ll be good enough for me (I think, lol). A very recent change in my personal life prompted a renewed search for the ideal bike, a carefree tongue-in-cheek bid on eBay has lead me to the purchase of Suzi.
    A 6 week old ‘black bikes matter’ edition with only 2 miles on the clock! It was purchased as a competition prize that failed to generate interest & as the dealer had offered an insulting bid to take it back it was released to the mercy of eBay. I’ve had 2 little bumbles of 40 miles each & I’m not entirely hooked, my patience of ‘running it in nicely’ combined with the lightness are not something I’m used to.

    If we were allowed out of county, a nice run along Fosse Way would be a good introduction.
