Went to the Rivvy Easter egg run today.

 

Had a great time, i got there really early but I needn't have worried as I met loads of peeps who were friendly and god for a chat.

Went for a brew at the bottom Barn first and there was the Prototype CCM Scrambler built around the Spitfire chassis.

Talked to a couple of lads nearby and it turns out he is the designer and gave me the full tour of the bike.

had to take a picky of mine too seeing as its the first time with the new 17" wheel and Michelin P5

tracks lovely now as more weight is on the front. I even met another TDM owner, Boltonwill  who invited me to his pub in Farnworth sometime :)
