    Welcome to YGSC btw Craig!

    That's a major problem with having a dad in the army, you barely get to see the bugger!

    HAHA, it wasnt that bad. It was more of a open day thing so there was thousands of students there and hundreds of soldiers and tanks etc. Loads of things to do like paintballing and assault courses.

    If you do want to come the Wakey Wakey, we are meeting in harrogate at 10:30 on the saturday.


    Personally if i were you, i wouldnt want to go any kind of distance on a unproven scooter.

    Piece of piss a scoot, just need to remember the gears go the opposite way to a bike... and they're on the handlebar! Very Happy
