A group of friends, good weather and some waist deep snow. Makes for a great 3 Days of Trail riding. Northern spain and Andorra is great at this time of year we felt like we had the hills to ourselves. We carried what we needed and stayed out till bed time. Tapas, cheap hostels and good company. Only one trip to hospital and all the bikes made it until the end.
This guy who writes these road books derserves a medal. I cant believe how good and easy the are to follow.
Following on from a small mention in the Febuary Bike Magazine we have had a lot of questions about this bike we built for our friend Dael last year.
The bike was a work in progress, it started as an enquiry about an exhaust pipe and snowballed from there. In the end it was pretty much a full rebuild with only the motor and frame remaining standard. Dael was keen to keep the bike usable but wanted something that was much lighter wieght and more rideable. The amount of stuff we removed was incredible.
Our Trimuph pipes have been pretty popular with custom builders watch this space as we have another set just finished that we will show you all in a week or so. We build them to individual spec so contact us if you want a set or more info.
Anyway here is the spec list for the Co-Built Panther for those who are interested or are creating something similar.
Big thanks to Chippy Wood for the pictures

Yesterday was Practice and Qualifing for the Great Indoors meeting on the 27th December at the Allington Equestion Centre near Gratham. It was also my good friend Nobsey's son Josh first ride on a race track.
|Revamped CB3 in its stable for the day|
|Phil was nervous before Josh rode so he tucked into a full english|
I didnt take enough pictures to summarise the day. Lets just say we had a lot of fun. Sorry that some of the regulars on the UK race scene missed the chance to ride indoors for various reasons. If you get the chance again I know you will love it. Ross fingers crossed we are both riding on the 27th!
Yesterday was the perfect day for a little ride around. I didnt take enough pictures because I was too busy having fun. Jason's Ducati lasted for 75% of the day which is 50% more than I expected and 100% more than its last outing.
